Reg Traviss’s Career

Reg Traviss started producing short films and documentaries at a very young age. He worked for the BBC early in his career and produced promotional videos for their shows. Following the successful co-founding of his production firm, “Kingsway Films,” Reg began developing his feature film directing debut. His first picture, “Joy Division,” was a fictionalized account of events that took place in the run-up to World War II and the early phases of the Cold War.

Along with co-writing the movie with Rosemary Mason, he also co-produced it with his own production business and Dreamtool Entertainment, a German production firm. The movie had a six million US dollar initial budget.

The movie, which was filmed in a number of locations, including London, Hungary, and Germany, starred performers such Bernard Hill, Suzanne von Borsody, Tom Schilling, Bernadette Heerwagen, British actor Ed Stoppard, television actress Michelle Gayle, and Ed Stoppard. The best-selling book “Berlin: The Downfall 1945” by Antony Beevor and the incidental publication of “Armageddon” by Max Hastings both served as inspiration for the movie.

It debuted in 2006 at the Copenhagen International Film Festival before being shown in the UK, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand cinemas. The reviews for the movie were favorable, and Reg Traviss’ work was complimented. Many critics hailed him as “one of the UK’s most promising emerging directors.”

His second movie, “Psychosis,” which was a remake of Michael Armstrong’s “Screamtime,” came out in 2010. It was a psycho-thriller. Justin Hawkins, a rock musician, Paul Sculfor, Ricci Harnett, and Charisma Carpenter played the lead actresses. Both the crowd and the critics had varying opinions on the movie.

The following year, Reg published his third movie, “Screwed,” which was adapted from the best-selling “Prison Officer’s book Screwed: The Truth About Life as a Prison Officer” by Ronnie Thompson. The movie focused on an ex-British soldier who joined a notorious prison in England after returning from a combat zone only to discover how flawed the system is.

Noel Clarke, Jamie Foreman, James D’Arcy, and Frank Harper were among the actors in the movie, however, neither critics nor the general public gave it many favorable reviews. His most recent movie, “Anti-Social,” came out in 2015. It was about two brothers who live their daily lives thriving on antisocial behavior. Along with other actors including Meghan Markle and Christian Berkel, it starred Gregg Sulkin and Josh Myers as the two lead brothers.

His Individual Life

Reg Traviss was born on February 12th, 1977 in London. Before dating English singer and songwriter Amy Jade Winehouse, he dated burlesque performer Raven Isis Holt from the “Suicide Girls” from 2008 to 2010.

Reg and Amy Winehouse’s father, Mitch Winehouse, claimed that the two were very close and that marriage was undoubtedly planned before Amy’s tragic death. Reg and her family were shocked by her death on July 23, 2011, which was caused by alcohol poisoning.

A British documentary film on the singer’s life and passing called “Amy” was released in 2015. Mitch, her father, harshly attacked the movie since it painted him in a negative manner. Since Traviss was not mentioned in the film, Traviss was likewise dissatisfied with it. As a result, Mitch Winehouse and Traviss have decided to work together to produce a movie that would accurately portray Amy and her life.
