Writer, Script Consultant

Kelly Krause is an archaeologist turned screenwriter. As an archaeologist, Kelly consistently sought to engage audiences in ways that both inform *and* delight, communicating immersive narratives via exhibitions, TV programs, digital media, and creative non-fiction.

In 2017, Kelly transitioned into screenwriting and created a social horror series based in San Francisco urban legend (MACABRE). She is also developing a western drama series and a dark fantasy series. She was recently hired to develop a thriller miniseries for the UK market.

With an insatiable passion for producing inclusive, character-driven narratives that foster collaboration and empathy, Kelly seeks to consistently learn and grow as a visual storyteller. She often draws from her archaeological background, creating content grounded in history and folklore. Her favorite genres are horror, thriller, sci-fi, fantasy and historical fiction ... Or any combination thereof!
