The Company

Derek A Whelan
Screenwriter

From teenage ghost stories to terrify bullies, poetry to explain away lingering afternoons, games and imagined kingdoms to alleviate the humdrum of the bourgeois burbs, Derek has always been spinning tales. Even theatre succumbed to his pen, with his high school play "Clever Conversation" endorsed by a local Theatre company in his native Dublin.

A synchronous break after final exams landed Derek in the dark, then smoke filled, cutting rooms of the film department of R.T.E. the national television station of Ireland. The flicker of the moving image, the brutality of the guillotine and the wax and tape of the Editor's toolbox condensed for Derek the essence of story telling for the screen.

Transfixed he flew to the airport, landed at the B.B.C. en route to western Canada, accumulating over two dozen movie titles as a Film Editor before founding Crazy Voice Film Corporation the masthead for the original screenplays he continually produces.
