About Greg

Greg Simmons is an Oscar winning filmmaker — if you count the plastic one he was awarded by his teachers on a school trip to LA… Since that early accolade, he’s graduated with Distinction from the London Film School, and won short film awards at Raindance Festival, and Lift-Off Global Network.

In 2019 he attended the Canal+ Talent Unlimited residency at Canneseries. Off the back of success at the festival, he was commissioned alongside co-writer Storm Sigal-Battesti to develop a biting new horror series about the Beast of Gevaudan for M6 France.

Recently, Greg and Storm took part in the 2023 Series Mania Writers Campus, pitching their new show, Goldfish, on stage at the festival. Currently, Greg is working in a Transylvanian writers room on a comedy horror about — what else? — Vampires!

Greg also directs TV commercials back home in London. He’s worked on hundreds of campaigns with over a decade’s experience in the advertising industry, genially doling out orders to such luminaries as Joanna Lumley, Richard E. Grant, Cilla Black, and John McEnroe.
