There's all sorts of ways to become a screenwriter. Grant Scicluna got there after being awarded funding for his short-film The Wilding and having that play in festivals around the world, he then used that as a trailer to get funding for upcoming feature Downriver.
But that makes the journey sound easy. Through the years of writing these projects Grant has toughed it out working part-time jobs as well.
But Grant's skill and perseverance has paid off, with Downriver getting Australian and US distribution.
This is a great insight into working with funding bodies, adapting novels and never giving up.
