Simon has written feature film commissions for producers such as Warp Films and Met Films, and spec scripts which he's sold in London, New York and Los Angeles.  His draft of In Tranzit (directed by Tom Roberts) attracted John Malkovich and Vera Farmiga onto the movie which was released in 2008. 

As a director he has collaborated with some fantastic talent in front of and behind the curtain and the camera. Highlights include the award-winning Cinderella (Latchmere Theatre, 1985); a 4-part 30’ documentary series Alien Nation for HTV Carlton (TX September 2002); and the last major filmed interview with composer Sir Malcolm Arnold. This was used by Tony Palmer in his 2-part South Bank Show that he also co-produced,Towards the Unknown Region (2004).
