Script Editor Becky Evans is the Media Parents Children’s Drama Return to Work candidate. She will soon take up a work placement with Kindle Entertainment via the Media Parents Children’s Drama Return to Work Programme funded by the Children’s Drama Levy managed by Creative Skillset.
Script Editing has always been an important creative relationship for a writer, and it’s continually a privilege to play a role in making good writing even greater. I was lucky enough to be able to turn a love of story into a career that spans across three different genres. I’ve worked in the fast-paced environment of soap opera and series drama (EastEnders/Family Affairs/Holby City), been blessed with production time to be creative in pre-school animation (Thomas the Tank Engine) and enjoyed nurturing young minds in children’s drama formats (CBBC Projects – Living It & Dead Gorgeous).
To date I have eleven years’ experience in TV drama working in both script and story editor roles, and also have experience in drama development for future commissions. With a focus on returning to Drama Editorial and a particular interest in Children’s & Family Drama, I’m very excited to be joining Kindle Entertainment on a placement as a Development Script Editor via the Media Parents HETV Children’s Drama Return to Work Programme. Working with the award winning Kindle team will be a fantastic opportunity to revisit the world of story and generally expand my creative experience into 2018.
