Bio

Hey, I’m Joanne Rose

Founder and CEO of Sweetest Pit Bull Productions and Vegan Vision Productions. 

I’m a multi-award winning screenwriter and producer from Melbourne, Australia and a permanent resident of the US. I lived Los Angeles for over 20 years and now reside in Maui, Hawaii. I’ve been a screenwriter and producer for over ten years.

I grew up watching R-rated horror movies from the age of 5, but it was my love of comedy, drama and fantasy that inspired me to become a screenwriter, especially the work of John Hughes and Nora Ephron.  

I studied Writing for Comedy and Writing for Television with RMIT (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology) and undertook further screenwriting studies through NexTV Entertainment and Screen Craft in Los Angeles.

Vegan Vision Productions was the first film production company I started in 2008, 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 screenplays and music biographies.  My love of hard rock music and punk inspired me to want to produce projects in these music genres.
