NZWG is proud to introduce a place for Producers, Production Companies and anyone hiring screenwriters to list their current job opportunities.

Job Listings:

Hudson and Halls: The Food of Love


About the Production Company:
Vendetta Productions Ltd is the production arm of Vendetta Films, one of Australasia's leading independent film distribution companies. Our first feature film production, Born To Dance, became the highest grossing NZ film of the year on its release, also being selected for TIFF and the Berlinale.


More recently we completed and released interactive project Give Kate A Voice and feature documentary In The Zone, and we’ve been funded for feature comedy drama The Swifty, which will shoot later in 2021.


Executive produced features include Pecking Order (NZ/Hot Docs official selection), The Butterfly Tree (AU/TIFF official selection), Repeat Attenders (AU/DocNYC official selection) and Return to Gandhi Road (NZ/DocEdge official selection).


About the Project:

This is a project to be based on the award-winning biographical book Hudson and Halls: The Food of Love by NZ author Joanne Drayton. We have optioned the book and are looking for a writer appropriate to tell the true love story of this trail-blazing gay celebrity couple.


The depth of each of Peter Hudson and David Halls’ back stories lends itself to a series rather than a feature film and we want a writer who can interweave their stories into a powerful, impactful and emotional Treatment. We have funding available to create this Treatment, and when it’s completed we’ll use it to attach broadcaster support and further funding to start working on full scripts.


You’ll have the support of Vendetta’s Development Exec to work through structure and story ideas, and also have the opportunity to spend time with the book’s author Jo to delve into her knowledge of the couple and their histories.


Project Dates:

2-3 months beginning in April 2021


Project Location:

Vendetta Productions is based in Auckland, but you can be based anywhere in NZ.
