You, Me & The Ex
10x Shortlisted and 2x Award Winning Pilot
One man thinks his life resembles absolute bliss, but when his recently divorced ex-girlfriend tries to throw herself back to her college days, one very complex love triangle unravels.
The Night We Met
3x Shortlisted, Award Winning Comedy/Drama Pilot
One young man looks to navigate his way into adulthood after falling for his best-friend’s, girlfriend’s, friend. Yes, it’s complicated. Despite past and present hardships, it can be said, that sometimes the wheels of love are unstoppable if the right souls encounter one another; but it’s a big if.
2x Shortlisted and Finalist, Gritty Law Drama
Rhys worked on the 'Boston Lawyer' project for around seven months, using research and building character profiles and what started out as a gamble to create something gripping, turned into a much more complex undertaking. 'Boston Lawyer' is a gripping law drama that follows a young, yet experienced lawyer given the responsibility to prosecute a man charged with a heinous crime with little evidence to suffice. It is a case that tests to the limit, his beliefs in the legal system and those who operate within it.
On The Day You Leave
Semi Finalist Placed, Life Drama Script
A tale of love, heartbreak and desperation, 'On The Day You Leave' is a story about people leaving our lives and how we begin to adjust to that empty void that was once so easily filled. It's a tale of three different people and how they are all connected by the loss of a person in their lives, in one form or the other. The way they navigate through it, will be the test of faith and believing that there is always a way back to what made you before.
Just Three Little Words - (A Zoom Adaptation)
Written by Rhys Freeman, 'Just Three Little Words' is a short film that follows a late night call between two friends, that leads to their lives changing forever, causing them to abandon everything they thought they knew about one another and their relationship.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this will be a slightly different take on the original script- after it was adapted for a safe zoom environment, until the original can be filmed.
