A Los Angeles native, David Chester's skills as a songwriter and pianist initially brought him to Tokyo, Japan, where he was presented with so many creative opportunities that he decided to set down roots. Missing home, and realizing he wasn't seeing the stories that were important to him, he turned to screenwriting and filmmaking. David's brand is "female-driven dysfunctional family drama." He has written four commissioned feature screenplays to date, three of which have been produced, with one currently on Netflix and one on Amazon Prime. Of his three original feature screenplays, all have placed highly  in U.S. screenwriting competitions, especially “Big Sister,” a three-time finalist and first prize winner. David has also produced, written and/or directed four short films, most notably “The Lesson,” which won the Tokyo LGBT Film Festival “Grand Prix” and the Torino GLBT Film Festival “Best Short Film.”

David’s writing has benefitted greatly from participation in Corey Mandell’s screenwriting workshops, Roadmap Writers’ Top Tier group for film and TV writing, and mentoring by writer/producer Ellen Sandler (writer/co-producer of the hit TV series “Everybody Loves Raymond”).

When David isn’t obsessing over the seven volumes of “Mad Men” scripts, you can find him hunched over his desk writing a screenplay or teleplay (or, more likely, rewriting them). For more info visit: davidchester.com
