Roseanna - Scholar

Screenwriting at The National Film and Television School

How are you involved in Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
In January 2016 I will be starting a Screenwriting Masters at the National Film and Television School and I am very lucky to have been offered a scholarship through Warner Bros. Creative Talent. They are helping to fund my time at the school; studying at the school would have been impossible without their generosity. I am very grateful and much looking forward to making the most out of every opportunity offered to me.
What does it mean to you to be part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
I am so happy to be a part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent. Not only will the experience, opportunities and connections I make be invaluable towards helping me move forward as a Screenwriter; but it also means so much to know that the team at Warner Bros. Creative Talent have seen potential in me and want to encourage and support me as I grow.
What do you hope to achieve in your career?
I will always be open to trying my hand at anything writing wise. I have always loved theatre (having studied drama for many years) and also love both the short and feature film format. However, I have a real passion for writing television drama. I see a good television serial as a totally new and unique experience for people. It transports them somewhere different, it can open their minds, make them ask questions and spark conversation and debate. In my career I want to write television drama so gripping that I am responsible for that feeling a person gets when they count down the days to find out how a dramatic plot will unravel and twist.

Which Warner Bros. character would you be and why?
For this question it is more which Warner Bros. character I would want to be, which is hands down Sandra Bullock’s character Agent Hart in Miss Congeniality. I would want to be this character simply because of how determined and passionate she is about her work. She is strong, independent and fiery whilst being very loyal. It would be very bold to say that I am that character but she is definitely the Warner Bros. character I would aspire to be like in life.
Who do you most admire in the industry?
There are many screenwriters I admire but the ones who stand out are those whose work I myself love to watch and would hope to write in a similar vein to one day. I love drama that has been born out of real life events and that knowledge of having a responsibility to the story or to the message it conveys; such as Jimmy McGovern's Common or Jim Barton and Jeff Pope's The Widower. Also, I believe in and want to write about the beauty in humanity, writing true to life characters which honestly convey the many stories of the every man - as is done by Ricky Gervais in Derek and recently in Cucumber, Banana, Tofu by Russell T Davies.
