Isaac’s original feature is in development with Joi Productions. In 2019 he was a JBA awardee, utilising the grant to develop his short film, BAPTAZIA, as a feature film.

In 2018 his original TV drama pilot “Afters” was longlisted for the BBC Drama Writers Room. The first two films, of Isaac’s mind-bending Shut Eye short film trilogy have gained cult followings at international festivals and been selected as shorts of the month on multiple platforms.

Isaac’s work has earned him a large YouTube following with clients including Universal, Sony, Beats By Dre, and Ministry Of Sound. In 2015 his video for Sam Feldt “Show Me Love” was Screen Nation nominated and came 2nd on Promo News most viewed (behind Beyoncé). He has been selected to join BFI Network x Bafta crew 2021, and The School of High Tide 2021.
Isaac says – “I am thrilled to be joining Stockroom at this stage in my journey as a writer. They have a reputation for producing thoughtful, ballsy, bold and artistic work, which often captures the zeitgeist and sparks debate. At a time where theatre’s absence is being so keenly felt, it feels like a golden opportunity and blessing to be part of something that will hopefully have a positive impact on British theatre’s future, not to mention disrupt the status quo a tad. I can’t wait to meet the writers and cause a stir.”
