About me – (At the risk of sounding repetitive,  below please find a little more information about us)

“We bid a warm welcome to our friends and many potential colleagues and new clients at Facebook, Linkedin and Stage 32…”                                                                                                        


My Personal interests are wide and varied, but I really just wish to talk about what I do for a living, and above all which also serves as a morale booster for well-being, personal pleasure and intellectual satisfaction. So it is really all about what I can do for others. I have received many wonderful and heartwarming messages from many here on Facebook after a fairly long absence, and I was surprised to discover how much Facebook has improved on its former format.  (I am referring back to 2013, as we’re now in September 2018, going on 2019.


We operate as a Literary and Film Agency under the name of Gilbert Literary Agency (Subsidiary of Hawkspurr Productions) resided in Otago, New Zealand. We are keen to promote literary works created by talented writers to receptive Publishers. A large proportion of our clientele base consists of our American cousins, Latin American, Canadian, Europe, Uk and Ireland, Scotland, European Middle Eastern quarters, Asia Pacific Rim neighbours, as well as Australian and New Zealand authors, in that order – which may seem somewhat of an irony considering where we are based.


We are constantly on the lookout for established as well as budding and talented writers aspiring to become first-time published authors, and I am finding the Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Stage 32 social medium platforms a useful tool in not only making friends and making our acquaintance with other business colleagues, but hopefully helping writers to achieve their dreams and goals to the best of our ability, and to be able to contribute in our own way and capacity to this amazing community.

Indeed, what would we do without all our talented authors and artists involved in our amazing   Literary Mediums, Film and Television media industries, who contribute their devoted creativity to a restless society.  In turn a society  looking to a way out of their respective doldrums (and the best of us have them from time to time) to infusing a couple of hours of pure bliss of escapism into our busy lives in what is now a fast moving and very turbulent age. Simply to be entertained if even only for a short interlude, and steal a measure of leisure time crammed into our busy weekly work schedules.

HOUR GLASS OF TIME – Our Focus on the Film Industry…

Some of the myriads of projects that have been presented to us over the decades around the world by both the Literary and the general Media and Entertainment factions, such as the Film and Television entertainment industries have offered a diverse diet of pure fantasy and decadence.   Whereas some more poignant and positive projects have concealed more pressing and subtle subliminal messages, which may have jolted and pummeled our consciences into action, by forcing us into that more difficult process of pondering and self-analysis.  Perhaps trying to show us the way as to how we could each of us contribute some modicum of ‘goodwill’ toward making this world a better place to live in as we travel upon our personal journey through it.

I deem it a privilege to be able to interact with and learn something new from all those wonderful and cool sorts on the above-mentioned forums, comprising of friends, old clients and new potential authors from many diverse backgrounds from around the world.  We have currently 35 Film Projects contracted to Hollywood, UK, and Canadian Film Media Companies.  The following films are in productions as I speak:
