Script to Screen is excited to announce the second mentor for their inaugural Writers' Lab Aotearoa in July - 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.

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 and financial assistance from the  New Zealand Film Commission.
