Previous Initiatives


Queensland Originals: Anthology will engage Queensland writers, directors and producers to develop a dramatic feature film as part of a collaborative initiative.

For the initial writing phase Screen Queensland is seeking Queensland-based writers to participate in a writers room led by international screenwriting specialist Stephen Cleary to shape a story that has the potential to be turned into a feature film.

The four selected writers or writing teams will develop detailed storylines for up to eight distinct short films or chapters, drawn together through a single dramatic narrative based on Stephen Cleary’s concept for a thriller about a group of teenagers forced to outwit and outrun a gunman when they come under attack.

The five successful writers who will participate in Queensland Originals: Anthology are:

Loani Arman
Nicholas Burgess
Tristan Savage
Katherine Putnam
Drew Jarvis
