I help storytellers and filmmakers take risks with their art.

Join me as we use old-fashioned storytelling to create stories, videos, and films that feature:

  • Flawed characters
  • Realistic dialogue
  • Well-designed plots
  • Actual stakes for the characters

Let’s make stories and films that matter.

Neil Chase

Meet Neil…

Writer, Independent Filmmaker, Actor, Mentor, and Founder of www.neilchasefilm.com.

Ten years ago, I was unfulfilled in a job that didn’t ignite my passion. A welcome shift happened when I took an acting class, leading to a reawakening of my love for storytelling. I transitioned from acting to writing, penning screenplays, and novels, all of which have earned me over 100 international awards.

I’m a co-founder of Brimstone Pictures, an independent film production company here in Canada. With award-winning shorts and a feature film under our belt, we are already hard at work on our next projects.

Besides working on my films and novels, I also act, direct, teach screenwriting, and mentor aspiring writers and filmmakers. And, as a multi-talented creative, I love exploring the intersection of creativity and artificial intelligence. While I do have some reservations regarding the overuse of AI, I also know that the future waits for no one and that adapting to new technologies is necessary.

As a true fan of genre movies (especially horror!) and pop culture, I love to share my knowledge, experiences, and unique perspectives on creative topics, and how AI can be a beneficial tool for artists and creators, through the articles on this website.

Iron Dogs Novel

read my horror-western novel

Iron Dogs by Neil Chase

1873. Six outlaws on the run find shelter in a freshly deserted New Mexico town. With no supplies or water and one of them gravely wounded, they realize too late they are trapped inside the lifeless town.

As they soon discover the grisly truth behind the disappearance of the townsfolk, they find themselves hunted by an unspeakable evil that seemingly cannot be killed.

When the malevolent creature targets them in turn, the previously tight-knit group finds themselves unraveling past the breaking point.

Spine-chilling, poignant, and action-packed, Iron Dogs is an instant classic for Horror and Western fans everywhere.

Gold Medal Winner for Best Horror Fiction and Best Western Fiction at the Global Ebook Awards!

“After fours years of script re-writes, I’d officially lost perspective on my project, and it was time to outsource. I’d come across Neil … and asked him to come up with some script notes. His work was fast, and most importantly helped me see things that I couldn’t. He has a great eye for detail, story, and structure. He’s on my speed dial for the next adventure.”

“Every time I log into Facebook I see that Neil has won a new award for his writing, so it was an obvious move for me to hand over my precious baby to him for his feedback on story progression, characters, and general notes. His response was clear, helpful, and not only did he point out areas that could be improved, but also explained why they would be an improvement. Using his advice, I turned my next draft into something I’ve been proud to show off to producers and directors.”
