Thomas
Duncan-Watt

Thomas is an Australian Screenwriters Guild Award (AWGIE) winning screenwriter who has written comedy for Australians (Good News Week), the British (NewsJack), and animation lovers all over the world (The Deep, Pirate Express, Winston Steinburger & Sir Dudley Ding Dong, Beat Bugs, Dennis the Menace & Gnasher). In fact, one of Thomas’ scripts for Dennis became the sole script selected by the BBC - of all 52 produced - to represent Dennis at the BAFTAs, earning the series its first ever BAFTA nomination.

 
Thomas also has a passion for sitcom and, after being mentored by Ken Levine (Frasier, The Simpsons) in LA, he returned to Sydney to write and create (in collaboration with producer Jonathan Rockefeller) 'Thank You For Being a Friend', a live stage show that features the Golden Girls as Muppets-style puppets! Debuting at the world-famous Comedy Store, the affectionate puppet parody earned rave reviews, sell-out seasons and - after being successfully licensed - has continued to run every year, both in Australia and internationally.

 
Currently, Thomas is working on a number of screen projects, including several with award-winning animator Suren Perera. Notably, in late 2016 their animated comedy series, Owl & Cloud took out the top prize at the prestigious 'Pitch This!' Competition at the Ottawa International Animation Festival before being quickly snapped up by Canadian animation powerhouse, Corus Entertainment, where it is now in development.
