Before becoming a screenwriter, Amber Trentham’s background was in script editing for film. In the feature space, she is currently developing SABINE, a gothic vampire novel for director Mahalia Belo and Fable/Film4 and an English language remake of the Danish horror film WHEN ANIMALS DREAM for director Charlotte Colbert and Anton/Back Up Media/Rumble Films. She is also adapting the short story EXIT as a thriller feature for Pie Films with Diego Luna attached to direct, as well as the book MY SISTER LIVES ON THE MANTELPIECE for Backup Media and the BFI, to be directed by Laila Marrakchi (THE EDDY). In TV, Amber is developing COUSIN BETTE, a contemporary re-telling of Balzac’s novel for Mandabach TV alongside an adaptation of SUPPER WITH THE CRIPPENS, the Edwardian crime of passion story for Moonriver/EOne. Amber has written within a range of spaces, but her writing is always distinctly character-led, really getting under the skin of her heroes and heroines in a way that is spirited, insightful and deeply moving.
