Soon, it would be Mal himself travelling the world (along with the characters in his popular Itchy Feet Comic!). He lived and worked as a film writer, director and producer in Mexico, France, Morocco, Italy and the Congo, before founding his own production company in Germany. He calls his style “Storybook Realism” -- “too real for fantasy, too odd to be real” -- and is obsessed with production value.
It was Mal’s passion for education that kick-started Catalyst’s film school in 2015. As well as spearheading our Film Production Certificate programme, he has been instrumental in designing our other film courses. His mission: to train the next generation of passionate, empathetic, and ambitious creatives.
