After graduating film school, Chelsea sold her first short film IMAGINARY FRIEND to ABC (Australia), which aired over a three-year period. She has since written for shows such as HOME & AWAY, NEIGHBOURS, THE DOCTOR BLAKE MYSTERIES (where she received 4 ½ stars from the Herald Sun for one of her episodes) and SECRET BRIDESMAIDS’ BUSINESS. Her most recent script editing credit was on Studio Bento’s VR project ‘Remembrance’, which has since been selected for the Kaleidoscope Showcase at Cannes XR.
Chelsea’s original pilot script YESTERDAY was a semi-finalist in Scriptapalooza TV Pilot Competition (US) while other scripts have been shortlisted at Tropfest Film Festival, The Hope Awards, Homebrewed Film Festival and Realm of the Senses.
Her original television concepts are all in active development with Emmy and BAFTA Award-winning company Hoodlum, Princess Pictures, Easy Tiger and Atlantic Nomad Productions (Los Angeles). In 2020 she was invited to join the Imagine Impact community – a global content accelerator program launched by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer.
Chelsea has worked in Film and TV production, as a lecturer for RMIT’s Advanced Diploma in Screenwriting, as an English teacher in Indonesia, as in house Development Script Producer at SEVEN STUDIOS in Melbourne and as a script reader for the SCRIPTWRITERS’ NETWORK in Los Angeles.
