Story Issues is a website by Andrew Todd, examining the stories we love and how they’re told.

Andrew Todd is a New Zealand-Canadian stage and screen professional, working primarily as a writer, script consultant, improviser, and editor/animator.

Andrew’s short films have won awards and screened at prestigious genre festivals around the world. His debut feature Ghost Shark 2: Urban Jaws, co-directed with Johnny Hall, was called “hilarious and inventive” by ScreenAnarchy, “a micro-budget delight” by Film School Rejects, “magnificently ridiculous” by High Def Digest, and “the cult movie Kiwi cinema has lacked during the past decade” by The Press. His (hopefully) second feature, So Lonely I Could Die, is currently in development and seeking production partners.

Past and current clients for Andrew’s work include the New Zealand Film Commission, Alamo Drafthouse, Propaganda Film, Bazelevs, the Court Theatre, Frank Film, and South Pacific Pictures. Bylines include those at Birth.Movies.Death (as Gaming Editor and Senior Contributor), Polygon, IGN, SlashFilm, VICE, The Spinoff, and Gameplanet. He also juried for Fantasia Film Festival and Fantastic Fest, and was a manager of the 48HOURS Furious Filmmaking competition for seven years.
