My most recent scripted drama is a science fiction short, Game Day, starring Stephen McGann 

- known to many millions across the globe for his

role as Dr. Turner in​ 

Call the Midwife.


A viral video has also been produced to accompany the main film, which is a infomercial by the fictional Neo Social Party - this is the future extremist group which rises to power to eventually govern the United Kingdom. This viral is already completed and can be seen via the video link...

My directing builds upon a strong backbone of industry experience as a film editor for more than a decade. I have edited countless documentaries and docu-dramas for broadcast in Britain and America as well as numerous short drama films.


A small sample of this editing background can be seen in the links below, along with a showreel on the editing webpage.

Reality Lies was set up by me, Chris Roberts, as my production arm for drama. I come from an established background as a broadcast editor and have now moved to writing and directing drama and drama-docs. A small sample of my previous projects is noted below.
