Vanessa Haynes

Vanessa has worked as a development producer/story consultant for various indies including Celador (CPL), Assembly TV, Baby Cow, Kudos Film & TV and mostly recently BBC Writers Room NI and Northern Ireland Screen. As a freelance script consultant/development producer across TV and film, her clients are based all over the globe.

She has recently turned to writing. Her first script, BALLINGATE is a comedy horror series aimed at kids and set in rural Northern Ireland (a place she currently resides and finds inspiring in a spooky way). She is currently writing a comic detective series MCINTYRE and has just finished a co-written comedy drama pilot WILD THINGS with writing partner Matt Sinclair.

Her first play THE UNHEARD is a multi-discipline immersive piece which is being developed by award-winning dramaturg Hanna Slattne (Tinderbox Theatre) with support of the Arts Council NI.  A pilot version of it debuted at the Being Human Festival, Queen’s University, Belfast last year and got Ness shortlisted for Unlimited’s Emerging Artist Award.
