About me

I have extensive experience teaching Film Studies, specialising in film style, genre, and classical Hollywood cinema. I am particularly interested in the interaction of economic, creative and aesthetic factors within cultures of film consumption and production. My current teaching also includes modules on Adaptation: Screenwriting and Narrative Form and Contemporary Cinema.

Area of expertise

My current research focuses on Cary Grant and acting and I am also an Academic Adviser for the Cary Grant Comes Home for the Weekend Festival. I have recently published an essay on 'Screen Character and the Star Vehicle' focusing on Arsenic and Old Lace (1946). The essay combines analysis of casting, screenwriting and performance as a way of thinking through the commercial processes of adaptation. My other publications include a monograph on Hollywood Romantic Comedy  (2006), essays on colour, widescreen spectacle, and CGI, and co-editing Neo-Noir (2009). I am a member of the Editorial board of Movie: A Journal of Film Criticism and the Advisory Board of Alphaville: Journal of Film and Screen Media.
