Open Doors

My name is Abbie Allen and I am a 24 year old Writer from Warwickshire that enjoys writing Spy, Action/Adventure, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Supernatural and Crime stories in either a script format or as novels. I also have Asperger Syndrome that helps me to be incredibly focused and organised, pick out the tiniest of details and see the world from a whole new perspective. I believe myself to be a self-motivated individual whom strives to make projects work off my own back instead of waiting for others to do the work for me. I would love to build upon my experience and become a Writer/Producer, but I feel that I need more experience in my field to be able to make that step up.


I studied BA Scriptwriting at the University of South Wales (USW) in Cardiff, graduating in 2017. Whilst at USW some of the modules I studied were in Script Editing, Script Reading and how to format TV, Film, Radio and Theatre scripts. I have been on other courses to develop my filmmaking skills, including “Foot In The Door: Film Skills” in 2017-18 which helped me make my first short film. I am a member of the Producers’ Forum based in Birmingham and I am also a member of the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain. I have made two short films, both with a nomination at the Birmingham Film Festival two years consecutively, and I helped to make a feature film in the role of Production Assistant. In the future I’d like to be able to make as many films as I can along the themes of self-identity, self-confidence and empowering disabilities, no matter the genre. I hope that further into the future I can help other people with their ideas and develop their scripts to be the best version they can be.

I have a full clean driving licence.
