OLIVER SELBY / SCRIPTWRITER
Hi! I’m a writer who specialises in developing children's content, animation and comedy, but I write across a huge range of genres and formats.
After graduating with a First-Class Honours in Scriptwriting, I became the Lead Scriptwriter at LoveLove Films where I developed 4 animated IP’s including Pop Paper City (distributed by Aardman) and Bottle Island (partnered with the United Nations). As well as this, I script-edited the RTS award-winning short film Chin Up and wrote promotional content and TV adverts for an array of global brands.
Since going freelance in 2019, I have written on kids' shows around the world including on the global YouTube phenomenon Masha and the Bear, preschool series CoNaBlue for FZ Entertainment/Tencent and some exciting ones I can't mention... yet! I have also worked on some feature film development for US animation studio Film Roman and have been writing and developing for some of the biggest theme parks in the world.
I have an innate sense of story (at least I like to think so), I relish the details and enjoy making people smile. I’m currently developing my own shows and looking to gain experience writing on other people's series too!
I am part of the BFI NETWORK x BAFTA CREW 2021.
