Professional biography

Darren Paul Fisher is an award-winning film writer, director and producer, appointed in 2011 after six years as Lead Tutor at the Met Film School in London. After completing an Honours Degree in Film & English Studies at UEA under the tutelage of Charles Barr and Laura Mulvey, Darren made his feature film debut writing, producing and directing the pioneering micro-budget ‘Inbetweeners’. Released by Universal Pictures, it became the first fully digital film ever to play the UK multiplexes.

Darren's most recent feature, the alternate-reality romantic mystery ‘Frequencies’ (formerly ‘OXV: The Manual’) won a raft of awards on its festival run and was released in cinemas across the US to rave reviews: The New York Times called it "fiercely intelligent", Indiewire called it "a wildly original sci-fi treat", Ain't It Cool News "adored it", and The Hollywood Reporter commented that it had "the political heft of a 1984 or Brave New World".

Currently, Darren is in development across a range of film and television projects both in Australia and the US, as well as completing a PhD on the practice of narrative feature filmmaking.

Darren is a member of the ADG, a full voting member of BAFTA and regularly sits on industry and festival panels as well as occasionally appearing on British television as a film pundit and summariser.
