Writer, Performance Artist, and Filmmaker
Tomos is a London-based writer, performance artist, and filmmaker. While studying English Literature and Drama at the University of Manchester, he co-founded Odds On Productions, working as a producer on the feature film HILDA, which became an official 2019 selection for both the Moscow Film Festival and London’s Raindance Film Festival.
Since then, Tom has been writing his own feature film, BLAGGERS, which tells the story of a young poet and his manager-mate descending upon the streets of London with nothing but the gift of the gab. While writing the film, Tom decided to try out his material under the “Probably Tomfoolery” brand. Picking up on a stint of politically-focused poems written during his time at university, he has been performing live around London and creating online content to pair with his poetry.
Since its release, Tom’s poem, “The Great Realisation,” has now been viewed over 30 million times across platforms and been transcribed into languages from every corner of the globe.
Tom’s mission from the beginning has been to present a message of hope, optimism and socially constructive and progressive ideas through his words.
