The Writer: Elizabeth H. Vu

Although I started screenwriting in 2008, I didn't really get my scripts out there until 2016. I now have 11 short scripts that have been produced and I currently have a feature in post-production.

I’m quite happy with what I have achieved so far, but I can’t help but crave for more accomplishments. Ever since I was young, I’ve always been fascinated by the art of storytelling. Now that I’m older and wiser, I feel that it’s my responsibility to bring forth great stories into the world that has given so much to me. I feel incredibly lucky and I am grateful for every second that I am screenwriting. Go to bio
