Miles Watts is co-founder of the creative partnership MilesTone Films, who have made the feature films Amber, CrimeFighters (Edinburgh Film Festival 2010) and Whoops! (Raindance Film Festival 2013).

Miles also teamed up with fellow York filmmakers Tony Hipwell and Hannah Bungard in 2008 to create the cult zombie comedy web series Zomblogalypse. With an international cult following, a proposed ‘Zomblog’ feature is on the horizon after gaining a sales agent and studio interest following a Cannes visit in 2013.

Miles and co. are currently planning a slate of feature films for production over the next few years.
