Crafting Powerful and Original Character Arcs, with Anthony Mullins (AKL)

Script to Screen welcomes BAFTA and AWGIE winning screenwriter Anthony Mullins to Aotearoa.

Join us as Anthony discusses screenwriting and how writers can explore and excel in telling more complex, intricate, authentic stories. Anthony challenges the conventions of story structure and character arcs, expanding your possibilities as a storyteller.

This is a fantastic opportunity to hear from one of Australia’s leading screenwriters, and author of the book Beyond the Hero’s Journey: Crafting Powerful and Original Character Arcs for the Screen.

Essential for anyone interested in writing scripts for film and TV series, this TALK will take place in both Wellington and Auckland in early May.


Anthony is a BAFTA and AWGIE award winning screenwriter, director and script producer. The projects Anthony has written and directed have won numerous international awards including a Primetime Emmy, an International Digital Emmy, two BAFTAs and five Australian Writer’s Guild awards. One of Anthony’s first short films (STOP, 2000) was nominated for the Palme d’Or for short films at the Cannes Film Festival. One of Anthony’s first TV assignments was writing and directing two spin-off web series for the hit US television series LOST, one of which won a Primetime Emmy Award for Best Interactive Television (Dharma Wants You, 2009). In 2022, Anthony’s play, The Norman Mailer Anecdote was a finalist in the Queensland Premier’s Drama Awards. His book Beyond the Hero’s Journey is based in part on his doctorate and was released by New South Publishing (UNSW) in 2021. It has so far been released in Australia, the UK, the United States and will be released in China in 2023.
