About Me

Troy Greenwood studied screenwriting at Leeds University and the University of Calgary, and holds a BFA in Drama from the University of Calgary.  His multi-disciplinary approach to film provides him with some unique perspectives on screenwriting.  His extensive experience as an actor provides him with a unique foundation for understanding dialogue, motivation and an actor’s impetus to action, while his directing experience provides him with insight into the importance of visual storytelling, the feasibility and logistical constraints that can occur during production, and how to account for budget and resources within a script.

He has written numerous produced shorts, including the award-winning Faded Image and also the award-winning TV pilot How to Survive (a Zombie Apocalypse) in Retail.  His latest short script The Marrow was a semi-finalist at the Milledgeville Eatonton Film Festival in Georgia, and he is in development on a feature western entitled Law of the West

He also produces films through his production company HHS Productions Inc. www.hhsproductions.com
