Writer/director MARK HERMAN transformed Jim Cartwright's
hit play "The Rise and Fall of Little Voice" from a
wildly magical stage performance to a modern motion picture fairy
tale set amidst a dilapidated but charming Northern sea town where
a host of unusual characters come to life.
Herman previously drew acclaim for writing and directed "Brassed
Off," another North Atlantic comedy about the adventures
of a working-class brass band. The film garnered French and German
Oscars as well as the Evening Standard Peter Sellers Award for
Comedy. Prior to that, Herman made his feature film debut with
the Disney comedy "Blame It on the Bell"
After graduating from the National Film School, Herman made the
Oscar-winning short "See You At Wembley, Frankie Walsh"
and went on to write and direct the Channel 4 short "Unusual
Ground Floor Conversion." He has also written for the British
television sitcom "The 1096ers" and, as a lyricist,
wrote songs for 80s U.K. chart-toppers The Christians, including
their massive hit "Ideal World."
