Wattpad WEBTOON Studios Adaptations

Screen Queensland is partnering with Wattpad WEBTOON Studios for the second time to allow Queensland-based screenwriters to access and adapt three stories from this leading social storytelling platform.

Adaptations of existing stories form a significant proportion of current commissioned screen content. This initiative provides the opportunity for emerging, mid-career and established Queensland writers to access an established I.P. with a strong audience base.

Writers will pitch their ideas for adapting one of the three below stories to Screen Queensland and Wattpad WEBTOON Studios. One writer per story will then be funded to develop their pitch into a polished, market-ready treatment. From there, two of the three treatments will be selected and funded to go to script stage.

The three Wattpad WEBTOON Studios stories are: 

School Bus Graveyard by Red (68.9 million reads)

All Good Things by Renee Racine Kinear (89,600 reads)

Apartment 239 by Elford Alley (420,000 reads)
