Fran Walsh

Fran Walsh is an Academy Award-winning screenwriter, film producer and musician. She has collaborated with her partner Peter Jackson on all his films since Meet the Feebles (1989), and was nominated for her first Oscar after co-writing Heavenly Creatures (1994). In 2004, Walsh shared three Oscar wins for her work on the final episode of the Lord of the Rings.

I think that we both have a good understanding of structure, which helps ... I'm obviously very visually oriented, and Fran is very good on dialogue and character, so we complement each other quite well.
