Screenwriting

I am an aspiring television screenwriter.

Here is a spec script for the excellent (but cancelled) Starz sitcom “Party Down”. Another one for the delicious teen dramedy “Gossip Girl”.

In 2007 I won SPAA’s Holding Redlich Pitching Competition and Metroscreen’s SPAA Fringe Pitching Competition for “Starts at Sunset”, a vampire drama series about a beautiful young vampire who doesn’t want to be a vampire. In 2008 renowned producer Posie Graeme Evans (“Macleod’s Daughters”, “Hi-Five”) was attached as Executive Producer. Fremantle Media Australia and Millennium Pictures pitched the show to Foxtel.

In 2008 I developed a six-part drama miniseries “Raise The Bar”, and placed second in Metroscreen’s annual pitching competition with the show. It takes a behind-the-scenes look at loves and lives of six 20-something Australian dancers. I wrote, directed and produced a sizzle reel for the show starring JD Carteret, a contestant from “So You Think You Can Dance Australia”.

“Pests” is an edgy half-hour comedy. In a world that runs on fast food and cheap drugs, it’s always been a pests’ paradise. But for flatmates Joe, a smart shy cockroach, and his best friend Leeroy, an unhinged ex-lab rat and unrepentant addict, a foxy endangered Swift Fox called Felicity is about to change all that. Add to the mix a faux-revolutionary possum Russell and a mouthy stray cat Lux, and the stage is set for outsider animal hi-jinx.

“Nothing But Net” is a prop for a low budget comedy web series.

I have also written for “Home & Away”.

I have written and directed two short films “The Convention” and “The Heist”.

Here is a short script I barely remember writing, “Extreme Justice Cops”.

Some specs for a short (5 min) drama “Marx and Venus”.
