The Dark Matter partnership is made up of two guys from disparate media backgrounds, that span producing, directing, writing and game design.


They share a passion for dark, genre fiction and aim to thrill, horrify and delight you as you ride this brief sliver of light, scraped between endless voids of cosmic night.

Carl Timms

Carl Timms has twenty years experience as an independent indie film-maker, having worked on a number of documentaries, short films and music videos as director, producer and editor. In 2016 he completed his directorial debut, the award-winning horror short, STILL, and established Dark Matter Films, a partnership specialising in genre films. 

Carl is Head of Video at DRPG (Televisual's 2019 #1 Corporate Video Production Company) and was formerly Head of Production at BBC-owned digital art commissioning fund The Space.

Mark Brendan

Mark Brendan is a writer and game designer, currently living in the New Forest. He has worked on numerous games, both analogue and digital, for companies such as Games Workshop, Target Games, i-Kore, Climax, Codemasters, and Vivendi, as well as publishing games related fiction and magazine articles. He is also the author of Son of Mars, a sci-fi novel about civil war on a Martian colony.
