Stranger: I wear no mask."

About Me



I am an author and filmmaker with a BFA in Stop Motion Animation from the School of Visual Arts in New York and a PhD in Film Studies from the University of Edinburgh (Scotland, UK). Raised by an Egyptologist mother, I grew up among museums and excavation sites, where I developed an unhealthy fascination with ancient art and mythology. I divide my time between bringing 12”-tall people to life in my studio in Edinburgh, excavating ancient tombs in the Egyptian desert, and researching Gothic literary monsters in silent film. I have published numerous articles on film and archaeology and my independent short films have screened at various international film festivals including the Edinburgh Fringe.


Clips and trailers for my films are available on my official website at http://yorwickcastle.com

My debut novel, Digging in the Stars, will be published by Blaze Publishing in March 2017.
