FYN DAY

Fyn Day is a British author and script-writer born 'Kevin Day' in Hampshire on May 27th 1959 and now living in Fareham, England (he adopted Fyn as his first name to avoid confusion with a TV writer also called 'Kevin Day'). He is the author of two novels, 'The Alice Factor' and 'Lauren', but is currently writing mostly for film.

Fyn Day began writing fiction after a short story of his won a competition sponsored by a local paper, 'The Chichester Guardian', although he had previously edited a national magazine, written copy for an advertising agency, and worked as a technical author.

Fyn Day has been tutored by both Syd Field and Robert McKee, and although his first novel began life as a dissertation for a Masters Degree in Creative Writing, completed in the year 2000, after completing the Director's Course in Motion Picture Production (with Distinction!) presented in December 2001 by Brighton Film School, nearly all his writing output has been in the form of film screenplays. Franz von Habsburg-Toskana MBKS (to give him his full title - 'Frank' to his numerous mentees) Director and Senior Lecturer at the CILECT affiliated Brighton Film School, later invited Fyn to join the teaching staff, but the pressure of commercial schedules elsewhere put an early end to this arrangement. Frank and Fyn still meet regularly and are both members of the Lunch Club, "the cafe du commerce for the media industries".

Fyn Day's production company, Running Legend, predates his certificate in motion picture production by about a decade, having been first operative in 1992 collaborating with a Bournemouth Film School student named Raja Bhattacharya, on an unfinished project called the 'Elysian Diner' (based on a published short story of the same name written by Fyn). Stuart Brown, a script reader for MGM, had brought the two together. 1996 saw Fyn's first completed film, 'Karibu Sana', which documented his trip to Kamsekwa on behalf of the Friends of Urambo and Mwhanhala, and filmed entirely on location in Tanzania.
