Tom Wright is a former writer for the webseries KateModern. Born in 1977 in London, Tom started making films as a teenager at the Children's Film Unit, a 16mm training workshop for young people. He then went on to study as a cameraman at the Bouremouth Filmschool, and by 22 years old, Tom had his first Super16mm feature film Director of Photography credit for "Dead Bolt Dead".
Continuing with his passion, Tom went on to shoot more low-budget films, shorts, TV promos, documentaries and light entertainment. Some of this work, such as "4 P.M." and "Perks," went on to win international awards, including Promax and iBAFTA.
Tom's work caught the eye of a variety of artists and theatre practitioners, such as Simon McBurney and Complicité, who asked Tom to help with their film adaptation of Shakespeare's "Measure For Measure." Tom has also collaborated with playwright Dominic Francis to write and produce several plays for the stage.
In 2004, Tom teamed up with Jason Fairley to produce the short film Have I Passed? The film won the Nokia Shorts award. The two teamed up again in 2006 to create Dead Rich, which they both directed, wrote, and produced. In 2007, Tom went on to direct and write another short film, this time with Paul Beard as producer. The film was titled Border Work.
Shortly after that, Tom came on board to work with KateModern. He was excited about the opportunity because he enjoyed working in a medium where the audience could reply within seconds of seeing a video, thus bringing him closer with said audience.
