Who is this Martin Gooch bloke anyway?
Although still appearing to be in his very, very late twenties, Gooch
was actually born in 1872 due to an unexpected flux in the space-time
Not a lot happened until 1992 when Gooch was 119 (see above) and went
off to the US to be an Archaeologist, even though he didn't know anything
about archaeology. Not knowing about things has never really been a set
back for Gooch.
After a degree in Film and Art, Gooch started work in the VFX Department
on Judge Dredd.
Since then Gooch has worked on more than 200 productions from Harry Potter
to East Enders and Robot Wars to Big Brother. He has filmed all over the
world, from Sahara to swamp to Shepherd's Bush. He’s been to see
things, talked to them, filmed them and written about them.
Gooch is the only person in the world to have been a winner with BBC Talent
two years running. He has made about 20 short film things give or take
a few, but he can't quite remember. Many of these short films have been
screened at festivals across the globe.
Gooch directed the BAFTA winning and EMMY Nominated Spooks interactive
(BBC/Kudos) and has directed Doctors (BBC1) and Hollyoaks (C4).
He has a Masters degree in screenwriting form LCC – The university
of the Arts and has written fourteen feature films – one a year
His debut feature film DEATH will be released in 2012.
And his adaptation Deathtrap Dungeon, based on the million selling fighting
fantasy books is currently in Hollywood.
Gooch loves far-fetched fiction and has written several short stories
and comics and stuff, most of which have not been published which just
goes to show how unjust the universe is. His first novel – In Spite
of London is currently looking for a publisher.
Gooch can hold his breath for 20 minutes, walk through fire, is immune
to Vampire attack and is receiving therapy for his constant lying and
doesn’t go out during a full moon.
