Meet Jax Bowman

A twenty-something-year-old relentlessly chasing the dream to create a piece of fiction that does more than tell a story. I first discovered my love for writing during my last year of college, where I studied Creative Media Production, a course I had fallen out of love with. Until I found screenwriting. It was my saving grace and gave me a new-found desire to continue with my college education. I have written a mockumentary/comedy script and an action screenplay. ‘Omega: The Heart and Soul of a War Criminal’ is an adaptation of that same action screenplay. I have spent over a year transforming this humble screenplay into an epic story, which features, thought-provoking dialogue. Characters to fall in love with, and those to despise. A promise of realism. And a shining light on mental health.
