About me

My name is Callum Andrew Johnston, a film writer, director & producer from Kingston-upon Thames, London.

Over the past 6 years I've completed my film training and written, produced and directed 3 feature films & 2 short films

My first two features RH11 & Little District, both films shot in my hometown created awareness for Knife crime in the south of England. The short film was a fantastic little piece about Extremism and was put in schools to help educate year 10 - 11 students. This film was called Crossed Paths.

I've also produced a short film called Shadows which featured in the short film corner at Cannes film festival in 2013. This short later went on to win a festival in India. A fantastic psychosis drama directed by the talented Sreemoyee Bhattacharya. The film went on to win 'Best Film' & 'Best Director' at the Cinemela Short film festival of 2014.

I just finished producing my latest feature film The Forbidden Note, which was inspired by my short film Crossed Paths.

A story about a young British Muslim woman falling in love with a black pianist, you can see a teaser trailer for this thought provoking film on my page.

Here's a link to a review of the screenplay by Michelle Sotiriou -

I am currently assistant producing an animated feature film called I am Khama which is a true story about King Khama III, the founder of Botswana. Attached is Conleth Hill, John Cleese, Colin Salmon and other A list talent.

I'm producing & directing Devilish Deeds which will star Jamie Foreman (Layer Cake, Sleepy Hallow & Eastenders) & Hafpor Julius Bjronsson (The Mountain from Game of Thrones). Also writing, directing and producing a feature currently titled Winter on Fire which adapted from the book Burnt: Christmas on fire by Author Cary Grant.

I believe in making content that will inspire and bring happiness to Billions of people all over the world.

    Callum is very professional, focused and hard working. On set he creates an atmosphere of friendliness but not at the cost of the work that is required. He has great technical knowledge and gets the best out of Cast & Crew
