Writer Biography - Paula Rosa

When I was a kid, one of my brothers used to ask me: "What are we going to play today?" And I used to reply: "I am going to read. You do whatever you want…” Much later, I realized that moment symbolized the start of my quest to become a storyteller!
This happened when I founded Animiniarte (2002-2010). A project devoted for children where I created numerous characters and scripts for live animations for several cultural spaces, among which I highlight the Communications Museum of Lisbon.
I started to write for animation by being challenged by the Multimedia Center of Espinho to create the planetarium shows: Journey to a Black Hole (2007) and Chemistry of the Universe (2011). After that, I joined the screenwriters team at NutriVentures (2011/2015), a Portuguese animated series for children that spread around the world. At NutriVentures I wrote episodes for six seasons, movie books, and several mini-stories. In the midst of all this, I did many other things and all of them, oddly enough, turned out to be important for what I do and want to keep on doing: work on storytelling!
