R.M. Moses

Writer / Director

I am a British born filmmaker and I have been film-making for 8 years now and like to tell stories about disability, invisible illnesses/struggles and intimately complicated queer relationships. I have an affinity with romantic, dreamy cinematography and visual storytelling that combines with deeply poetic and philosphical writing, like that of Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan, which was my entry point for my interests in filmmaking.

Living with Crohn's Disease and trying to balance my health with work can be taxing. Having an invisible illness that eats at you whilst having to keep up appearances has been one of the biggest struggles. From this life experience of sacrifice and making lifestyle compromises, I like to tell very poignant and intimate stories from a working class and disabled perspective. I’d like to be able to give a voice to the voiceless and be a beacon of hope for people who don’t have faith in any kind of industry because of their disability or socio-economic class. I’d want my stories to be revealing, intimate and hard hitting on a human level.

I take huge pride in bringing heavy emotions and realism to my drama's. I feel like I have a responsibility to keep telling these stories for the people who are struggling in silence and need a form of representation on screen.
