Writing for Stage and Screen
I graduated summa cum laude from Whitworth University with a degree in Writing and Theatre. My last screenplay, Of Elephants & Animals, was a finalist at the Austin Film Festival Screenwriting Competition and in the Top 3 for the Thriller category in the Final Draft Big Break Screenwriting Contest! Below are some of the projects I've had the honor of working on that are currently viewable online:
An exhausted tenant attempts to have a furry guest evicted -- but the antisocial building manager isn't exactly cooperative. A short film that I wrote and directed, shot in the style of a multicam sitcom.
I am a contributing writer for The Digits! The Digits are the galaxy's greatest unknown rock band. As an app and a web series, The Digits uses live action narrative comedy with interactive gameplay and catchy songs to introduce math concepts to children. The Digits has been nominated for the 2013 International Academy of Web Television for Best Educational Web Series and has been featured on CNN, Wired, Laughing Squid, Ok!, and more.
I co-wrote Elsewhere, a full-length play inspired by Gustav Klimt's The Kiss and Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. When a new couple's first kiss takes them to a strange and fantastical world where everything--including secrets--are living things, they discover what the dark side of love looks like. This play was written and has been copyrighted by myself (Heather Rose Walters), and Rachel Ewing. All the dances in this piece belong to our amazing choreographer Jessica Liles.
I also had the thrill of directing the world premiere of Elsewhere. If you'd like to watch the live play in its entirety, feel free.
