WRITER – DIRECTOR – STORY CONSULTANT
As an only child Konstantinos’ imagination was his playmate. He would spend hours daily creating stories influenced by mythology and fairytales. By age 11 he was creating his own comic books. Storytelling soon became a passion and that passion took shape in the art of film making..
At age of 17 Konstantinos followed his dream of becoming a director by studying Film and TV in Bournemouth University in the UK. Instead of completing the one thesis film assigned to all students, Konstantinos’ ambition led him to create three short films, which surprised the professors with their creative range and led to him being one of two students in his class to graduate with an A+.
His first gig after film school got him acquainted with the Hollywood way of making movies, by being one of the assistant directors in Donald Petrie’s “My Life in Ruins” starring Nia Vardalos (2009). The Los Angeles Film School followed, which led to his seven year move to Los Angeles. He co founded Homeric Pictures a production company through which Konstantinos and his colleagues were creating promotional material for emerging artists. He wrote and directed nearly 100 scenes and web-shorts and 16 short films of various genres some of which received several festival submissions and awards. He has collaborated with actors of all ages and backgrounds – some of which have starred in major shows and movies, such as Scarface, Game of Thrones, Blacklist, Homeland, The Doors, Banshee, True Blood and Breaking Bad.
New York followed where Konstantinos was hired by the executives at York Studios to supervise script development stages on future productions. His skills as a script consultant led him into collaborating with a boutique production company whose feature screenplay was then offered a distribution deal by Millennium Films. He has also been hired several times to adapt true stories or novels into treatments.
He is currently working into the advanced development stages of his first feature film as a writer/director, a psychological thriller about the only survivor of the famed battle of the 300 Spartans.
