About Jessica

Jess is an emerging screenwriter, producer and director from Australia with a background in broadcast journalism and communications.

2022 has seen four of her projects funded for early development: kids animated comedy series ‘Terry the Canary’; family comedy feature ‘Summer Camp’; limited series ‘VOC’ (drama); and feature film ‘Leona’ (mythic-scifi drama).

Her Australian romantic dramedy feature ‘Unchained Melody’ was selected for the top ten in Screenworks ‘New Voices’ romantic comedy initiative in early 2022 and is being developed with strong market interest.

Jess is directing 2 shorts in 2022: scifi art film ‘Black Hole’ (post prod) and French language film ’Indifference’ (pre-prod.)

In 2021 she founded 'Set Ready Film', an accessible workshop for emerging screen practitioners to collaborate and develop their practice.

Jess is a member of the Australian Writers' Guild (AWG), Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance (MEAA) and holds a Bachelor of Arts (Journalism - Broadcast) from Charles Sturt University.

She lives in Canberra with her children and menagerie of weird pets.
