ABOUT THE FILMMAKER

Thomas Goggans (Writer/Director) grew up in New York. He wrote his first play “Shades of Gray” at the age of 16. The play was read by a representative from Playwrights Horizons who immediately placed him into a ten-week writing program. Thomas eventually went to California where he sold his first screenplay “Love and Happiness,” a romantic comedy to a top Hollywood producer. Shortly afterwards, Thomas went on to write another comedy called “Taking Chances,” which was also purchased. After moving back to New York, he expanded his knowledge of film by working at various post- production houses and on independent film sets. He developed his craft as a director by helming his first short, “The Bachelors Club.” “The Bachelor’s Club” received positive word of mouth in the festival circuits where his film was featured amongst other up and coming filmmakers. He went on to direct his second short, “A Family Affair,” which was also featured in film festivals. Thomas has not only studied writing he has also taught screen and play writing. He also directed music videos for various artists and successfully wrote and produced two hit stage comedies called “A Love Divine” and “The Brethren”. Second Wave Entertainment is interested in adding his screenplay for “The Brethren” to their slate of proposed projects.
