Wayne Gerard Lionel Trotman is a British writer, blogger, filmmaker, artist, photographer, composer and producer of electronic music.
Born in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Trotman studied at Presentation College, San Fernando, under the late former principal, Brother Michael Samuel, whom he described as one of the greatest human beings he had ever known. He won the Presentation College Art Prize twice - 1979 and 1982. During the early 1980's, Trotman won several national art prizes in Trinidad and Tobago. His artwork during this period consisted largely of comic book illustrations and acrylic or oil paintings.
In August 1984, Trotman moved to England to study art and design at the Heatherley School of Fine Art in Chelsea, London. In 1985, his work was chosen for the London Youth Festival Exhibition. Between the late 1980's and mid 1990's, Trotman produced compositions for British Sky Broadcasting (BSkyB); as well as low budget independent film productions. He completed his second feature film script entitled ‘Ashes to Ashes’ in 1994; and, in 1995, his short film – ‘London: Metropolis of the Future’ premiered at the British Short Film Festival. Trotman, who is trained in several martial arts disciplines, directed, co-produced, scored and edited the British independent film, Ashes to Ashes, in 1998 - arguably the world’s first digital feature film and Britain’s first martial arts movie. He also played the film’s lead role of Gabriel Darbeaux and used real martial arts weapons, including the nunchaku or two-piece rod.
In 2006, Trotman co-produced a training DVD, which tackles the cause of anxiety and panic attacks: The Fight or Flight Response. Between 2006 and 2009, he wrote his epic Psychic Wars sci-fi novel: Veterans of the Psychic Wars; and in 2012 he released the eBook, Ashes to Ashes: Screenplay. Also in 2012, Trotman became Kingston upon Thames adult intellectual chess champion in what was his first and only British chess tournament. January 2014 saw Trotman at number 1 on the Reverbnation Electronica chart for the UK and 6th globally, and he has maintained a Top 40 presence throughout 2014. In December 2014, he released Kaya Abaniah and the Father of the Forest, another thrilling instalment from the Psychic Wars universe.
