Telling Your Unique Story

Content & Screenwriting

 

Hi, my name is Kristina Jilly, writer and Melbourne native living in Europe, passionate about language and storytelling.  

 

I'm a screenwriter who has written scripts for broadcasters and production companies (HBO Europe, RTL, Endor, Flatpack Films) and digital content (blogs, emails, newsletters, ebooks) for the corporate sector.

 

I also teach English at the University of Applied Sciences in Austria and hold storytelling for business workshops. 

Need help writing a feature film, TV or web series? As well as writing my own original material, I work on projects for producers or directors. I can organise writer's rooms in Central Europe with international, experienced screenwriters to develop concepts and write scripts. 

 

Let's chat!

 

My background: A journey from headhunting to ghostwriting

 

After graduating from university in Australia, I taught English in Eastern Europe, then co-founded a successful recruitment company where I worked for many years. My "calling" to writing happened later in life. I took the plunge and left headhunting, hoping the parachute opened before I hit the ground. 

Thankfully, it did. 

Since then I've written for HBO Europe and RTL Television, where I also held the position of Story Editor. I've created and developed film and TV series and written scripts for production companies in Europe and the U.K. I've also branched out via Story Inkubator into writing blogs, newsletters and ebooks for clients who want a sprinkling of storytelling magic in their content.

With extensive experience in TV and content creation, I work with existing IP or create concepts from scratch to develop screenplays and scripted content. 

I created and wrote TV drama series for HBO Europe for over four years and worked on several shows for RTL Television such as ALTAR GIRLS, AMONG FRIENDS and LOVE ME NOW. I've participated in numerous writer's rooms over the years and have projects in development in the crime, thriller, period drama and comedy-drama genres.

 

I am drawn to complex, highly flawed, female anti-hero characters and am currently fascinated by how mid-life crisis is manifesting in Gen X. ​My biggest influences in no particular order are the Cohen brothers, David Lynch, Aline Brosh McKenna, Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould.​ 

 

I'm represented by Fiona Grant at Dench Arnold.
