I am Jasper Klimbie, UCLA trained screenwriter, journalist, freelance (copy) writer, creative and media maker. Way back in 2008, LEV pictures bought and developed my very first screenplay “Brothers”.
Since then I graduated from UCLA Film School’s professional program in screenwriting and am continually striving to get my work onto the screen. I have written a number of screenplays both short and long, in English and Dutch. Excerpts are available right here:
In 2012 I wrote the multiple award winning short film ‘The Pinto Edition’, which has featured at various festivals from Portugal to Cornwall to Fargo North Dakota! Furthe short films have followed, including ‘The Last Man’ and ‘Fuk It’ – the latter nabbing me the best screenplay award at 48hfp Amsterdam 2016.
I currently have two TV drama formats in development: ‘Green’ with Infocus producties and Bad & Breakfast with Stepping Stone producties.
