Sharing the Love of Storytelling & Language.
Hi, my name is Kristina Jilly, writer and Melbourne native living in Europe, passionate about language and storytelling.
I've written web content and screenplays for companies such as HBO Europe, RTL, Endor, Revenue AI, EU Training and Flatpack Films. I also teach English at the University of Applied Sciences, Upper Austria.
Whether you need help developing a killer script, writing engaging blog posts and ebooks, or improving English skills through story, I have the experience and dedication to make it happen.
A highly experienced writer and teacher specialising in:
TV Writing and English courses
After graduating from university in Australia, I taught English in Eastern Europe and worked in headhunting for many years. But the urge to write had always been strong. There came a point when I had to take the plunge and hope the parachute opened before I hit the ground.
Thankfully, it did. The landing was a tad bumpy, not gonna lie.
Since then I've written for HBO Europe and RTL Television, where I also held the position of Story Editor. I create and develop film and TV series and write scripts for production companies in Europe and the U.K.
The birth of Story Inkubator
During the pandemic, while others were learning how to crochet and playing Kahoot, I was tinkering with story to stay sane. I also started teaching English at the University of Applied Sciences in Austria. Still do.
Since setting up Story Inkubator, I've expanded from writing *just* scripts into content writing, ghostwriting and story training. Over the last two years, I've written blogs for websites and ebooks for clients in a variety of industries.
My screenwriting experience
With extensive experience in TV and content creation, I work with existing IP or create concepts from scratch to develop screenplays and scripted content. If required, I also organize writers' rooms with experienced TV script writers to further develop concepts. .
I developed 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, where I held the position of story editor. I have participated in numerous writer's rooms over the years and have projects in development in the crime, thriller, period drama and comedy-drama genres.
One of my TV projects, AMRITA, about the revered Indian-Hungarian painter Amrita Sher-Gil, was accepted to Midpoint's 2021's Series Launch program. BACKWATER, was awarded special mention and featured at London TV Pitchbox.
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.
