Paul Wells: An Animated Screenwriter: Tales, Tips and Tall Orders from a Writer's Notebook

The Centre for Creative Arts, La Trobe University, in partnership with the Writing Cinema Group of RMIT’s School of Media and Communication, invites you to a free public lecture:


An Animated Screenwriter: Tales, Tips and Tall Orders from a Writer's Notebook

From writing radio series about Hollywood’s top directors, to scripting British TV soap-operas, to working on a myriad of animation series and films, Professor Paul Wells has a range of credits in the media production field. More to the point, he has a host of experiences with figures as diverse as John Milius, the writer of the original Conan the Barbarian; the perennially ill or injured citizens of Holby City, surely Britain’s most accident prone fictional town; Horror writers like Stephen King and Clive Barker, and fresh from his pineapple under the sea, Spongebob Squarepants. His lecture will include a range of examples from his work, and offer some analysis and advice about screenwriting, which he has written about in his down time in the hallowed halls of academe, at the UK’s Olympic campus, Loughborough University.
