Neville Kiser is a Los Angeles-based screenwriter who graduated with a BA in Journalism from Taylor University, MA in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary, and MFA in Screenwriting from UCLA. After his studies, he worked for two years as a writer’s assistant for Dustin Lance Black (MILK, J.EDGAR), helping to develop his script slate. Most recently, he completed a feature film adaption of the New York Times bestseller DOWN RIVER by John Hart and sold an original feature pitch to Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment for Universal. Additionally, his penned script MAN OF SORROW about Oscar Wilde's tragic final days landed him on the annual Hollywood Black List (and to this day, keeps getting him more work, despite it being a script that has yet to be optioned, sold or made). He's a proud member of the Writer's Guild of America-West, and is repped by United Talent Agency.
