Bea Barbeau-Scurla is a stand-up comedian, screenwriter and producer. She is a regular face on club lineups all over Sydney and Melbourne and has opened for amazing acts such as Wil Anderson and Geraldine Hickey. Her voice has been described as manic, unique and sharp.

Masters of Screenwriting | AFTRS

2018 - 2019

Worked on two major screenwriting projects; horror/comedy Feature film - Birderer and drama/comedy television show - Fox. Both are still in development. My thesis for my masters centred around the use of anthropomorphism (the showing or treating of animals, gods, and objects as if they are human in appearance, character, or behaviour) as a comedic device to tell stories about trauma and dark subject matter in film and television.

Bachelor of Screen Arts | AFTRS

2015 - 2017

Produced three short films in final year film school: "Gronks" (dir. Alexei Toliopoulos), "Witch Hunties" (dir. Michail Mathioudakis) and "On Mountains We Stand" (dir. Alexei Toliopoulos) which later was transformed into the amazing podcast "Finding Drago" by Alexei Toliopoulos and Cameron James.

Wrote and produced experimental short-film "Psychostasia"(dir. Béatrice Barbeau-Scurla) in first year film school.
