Screenwriter

Hey there! I’m Joanne Rose

I’m a multi-award winning screenwriter who writes original female-centered comedies, by giving a strong voice to female characters.

I was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia and lived Los Angeles for over 20 years, before moving to Maui, Hawaii. I’ve been a screenwriter for over ten years.

Despite growing watching R-rated horror movies from the age of 5, it was my love of comedy and drama that inspired me to become a screenwriter, especially the work of John Hughes.

I studied Writing for Comedy and Writing for Television at RMIT (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology) and took screenwriting courses and programs in LA.

Vegan Vision Productions was the first production company I started in 2009, which focuses on web series and unscripted programs for TV. 

I opened my second production company Sweetest Pit Bull Productions in 2015, which focuses on original female-centered comedies, by giving a strong voice to female characters.
