bio – brett snelgrove
Heralding from Australia and now based in London, I’m a writer/producer who has successfully forged a career in television production and social media engagement. I’m currently developing several scripted digital series and have international connections within the film/TV industry and social media community. I have written and produced several award winning short films, been an integral part of the production team on three series of the Australian TV comedy NEWStopia and co-developed a government funded multi-platform series with Renegade Films. I’m currently working with a diverse range of brands as a social media engagement moderator for one of the UK’s largest social media management companies, Tempero, and also a regular member of the ScriptTank writer’s group. See the side bar for samples of my work.
My television highlights include nutting out Hitler’s connection to Fanta for Shaun Micallef’s NEWStopia; saving the planet one household at a time on ABC TV’s Carbon Cops; transforming a bunch of geeks into a soccer team on SBS TV’s Nerds FC; and working on the Fremantlemedia/MySpace web drama, FREAK.
In 2005 I wrote and produced Domestic, a self-funded HD short film which screened at 20+ festivals and won the 2006 St Kilda Film Festival’s Editing and Craft awards, plus numerous accolades for best film, best actor and audience choice. Domestic is licensed to Atom Films and has screened theatrically and on television networks in Australia and overseas.
One of my earliest published works (my Primary School Press!) was a short story about Spider-Man and Superman teaming up to rid the world of bad guys. I am no longer so idealistic. I now know that such a franchise crossover would be impossible in today’s marketplace.
