Screenwriter & Producer

Hey there! I’m Joanne Rose

I writes original female comedies for Generation X women, 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. 

I’ve always had a deep love for film,  especially growing up in the 80’s watching movies by John Hughes, who is my greatest inspiration.

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

I love to inspire and empower women through comedy to rise above adversity.

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

I formed my second production company Sweetest Pit Bull Productions in 2015, which focuses on original female comedies for Generation X women, by giving a strong voice to female characters.
