About

Louise always had an interest in writing and in the 1980’s had the opportunity to write a comedy pilot episode for Granada TV based on her script ‘The Three Little Flowers’.  After some time out to have a family she was was stimulated back into writing after taking on a freelance job for the  BBC in 2008 to do props and set design for a TV series.  With the help of ScreenHI Louise threw herself into a diverse series of workshops, seminars and festivals in many aspects of film, TV and radio gave her an insight into the industry as well as the opportunity to learn and expand her industry knowledge. 

Louise has written a short Gaelic film, winning a Visionary Award with FilmG in 2008 followed by a short documentary ‘Beautifully Crude’ on her artist father George Wyllie.  From experimenting with many aspects of film production Louise has finally decided that writing is where she belongs.  She is currently part of a small Highland writing team brought together by ScreenHI who have been working with renowned Director Marcus White and Writer Mick Martin since 2009 on a pilot series for TV, Carlochmuir.  In 2013 she was appointed as one of two trainee scriptwriters working with MoveonupTV on their recent commission for BBC Children's television - Katie Morag. After many months of training with some of Scotland's best screenwriters she co-wrote The Big Boy Cousins episode in the first series.

We have provided this area of our website for companies and freelance practitioners that ScreenHI has worked with in the Screen and Broadcast industry based in the Highlands and Islands to showcase, network and profile their work and craft.
