Virginia Wright

Virginia has over twenty years of experience producing and directing stories for screens big and small. More recently the attraction of spending more time telling a single story really well has lured her towards feature and feature docs. Her screen credits range from primetime arts and docu-drama programming on TVNZ and TV3 to blue chip documentaries on networks such as Discovery Channel, National Geographic and Fox Television’s Natural History New Zealand. For the past decade Virginia has developed and produced popular factual television delivering viewers around the world an opportunity to probe the mystery of the mind, question biology and explore the spirit that motivates our actions and ambitions. Her belief that stories anchored in the real world gain power from their authenticity means that her slate includes features based on true stories as well as feature docs exploring the space where modern science meets philosophy.
Having a double honours degree in French and English Virginia has studied story telling through the centuries in both languages. On her return from living in France for two years where she taught English as a second language, Virginia completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Broadcast Communication at Auckland University. She has been working in television ever since. Her work in screen production brings together her story telling skills, her journalistic instinct and her genuine interest in people and curiosity about the world around her.
