Script to Screen is excited to announce the second mentor for our inaugural Writers’ Lab Aotearoa – the Academy Award winning screenwriter, David Seidler.

I think of a script in terms of music: of ebb and flow, of rhythm. – David Seidler.

David has a vast oeuvre writing for stage, television, and feature film. In 2011, he was rewarded for his talent when he received both an Oscar and BAFTA for Best Original Screenplay for The Kings Speech.

 

We’re thrilled to have David join us for the first year of this initiative, and know that the participants will benefit hugely from his experience.

David Seidler joins US screenwriter Michael Goldenberg mentoring at our five-day residential Writers’ Lab – with our exciting line-up of local mentors soon to be announced.

The Writers’ Lab Aotearoa is brought to you with support from the New Zealand Writers Guild with financial assistance from the New Zealand Film Commission.
