Joseph works as a freelance writer and creative consultant, specialising in gaming and animation. 

His work to date includes cinematics, trailers, and promotional shorts, ranging from AAA franchises to mobile gaming start-ups.

His portfolio encompasses a range of different genres - whether that be high-octane comedy, dark sci-fi, or fantasy action. His most-watched short, Tumbleweed (2020), currently has over 150m + YouTube views. 

He brings a decade of varied writing experience to his work: an award-winning comedy and theatre background; extensive experience working with Aardman Animations; his own Radio 4 show, Joseph Morpurgo's Walking Tour; and TV and radio credits across a range of genres.  


Joseph's is able to help with:  

- winning pitches: developing original film concepts from client briefs (or from scratch), then collaborating with agencies to present that vision to the client. 

- writing scripts: turning concept ideas into fully-realised scripts, and working closely with directors to develop the best possible film.   

- fine-tuning stories: streamlining, restructuring and improving existing scripts at production stage. 

Beyond animation & gaming, Joseph has also worked with agencies including BrandOpus, ODD London and Brokkr, developing pitches and scripts for the likes of Tea India, Princes, Tanqueray and Craft Gin Club.
