Powerhouse Australian comedy production company Princess Pictures has optioned three projects from South Australian writers following a successful South Australian Film Corporation/Princess Pictures Comedy seminar and pitching session for SA writers in February.

The seminar and pitch day was structured to provide selected South Australian practitioners with the opportunity to expand their understanding of Princess Pictures’ development process and the chance to pitch comedy ideas and experimental short form comedy projects. 

Eight writers were chosen from 34 applications to attend the seminar and meet with Princess Pictures executives Paul Walton (Partner/Producer) and Dave Dellar (Producer) for 20 minute pitch sessions. 

The three projects optioned were:
•    Blazer 420 from writer Victoria Morgan. 
Uber smart and sassy Sophie tries to right the wrongs of the stoner world.
