ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hey there!

My name is JOAL EDUARTE. I’m a screenwriter, filmmaker and TV producer based in The Philippines.

I’ve been passionate about telling stories through film since my college days. After graduating with a degree in Communications, I wrote my very first full feature screenplay and entered it into a nationwide screenwriting competition here in our country. Against my expectations, I was selected as one of the winners of that competition.

I have continued writing stories and learning more about the craft since then. And now, through NEWBIE SCREENWRITERS, it is my goal to help those who want to start their own screenwriting journey but don’t know where to begin, as I was back then before I wrote my first screenplay.

With the lessons I’ve learned over the years – along with future lessons that I will learn along the way – and my experience with my own first screenplay, I want to develop, inspire and motivate aspiring screenwriters to turn their first projects into a launchpad towards storytelling success.
