Joe Villanti

After a short career in advertising I began writing, directing and producing low-budget short films that were well received by audiences.

As writing was where my talents lay I began writing feature scripts managing to earn script funding through, Film Victoria New Writers’ Scheme, Screen Australia and KOSO funding, Pathways; including hiring Larry Karaszewski (writer of Ed Wood, The People v Larry Flynt, 1408) as script editor and winning or being well placed in several international scriptwriting competitions.

As well as scriptwriting, I have also collaborated with comedian CJ Fortuna on a sketch comedy show, ‘Angry Piñata’, that has won several major comedy awards including: International Comedy Channel Short Film Festival Best Film and a sell out season at the prestigious Red Stitch Theatre.

KILLER is my first novella.
