Hi, I'm Roshan.
I'm a scriptwriter and composer based in Singapore.
My work spans a growing portfolio of cross-platform passion projects, largely centred around accessible and entertaining stories.
This includes showrunning a serialised audio drama about the early life of Genghis Khan, joining an international writer's room for a graphic novel adaptation, designing sound for experimental indie games, and composing instrumentals for nature and heritage documentaries.
I'm obsessed with dramatic structure, earning audience investment, and close collaboration within tight-knit teams.
STORYTELLING - SCRIPTS & SCORES
I have a deep love for film, theatre and video games, and experience writing scripts and musical scores across each.
Since graduating from Yale-NUS College in 2018 with the Outstanding Capstone Award for Arts & Humanities, I have continued to grow my expertise and technical craft as a full-time media freelancer. I am readily available to dicuss work for scriptwriting, story development and instrumental composition.
TEMUJIN: AN AUDIO DRAMA
(SCRIPTWRITER, DIRECTOR, COMPOSER)
A five-episode audio drama following the rise of Genghis Khan, and the fall of his closest friend. Launched in January 2020 on all major audio platforms, where it has since found an active international audience.
"This is a gorgeous work of art, adapted with love and care by Roshan Singh, vivaciously performed by a talented cast, and designed so fluidly you will feel the tension of telling a story with a Night Guard’s arrow aimed at your head."
- Elena Fernández Collins (Reviewer)
CLIMATE CHANGE THEATRE ACTION: SINGAPORE 2019
A series of plays and poems performed around the connecting theme of climate anxiety, as part of the global Climate Change Theatre Action initiative calling attention to the UN COP talks.
I wrote and directed a one-act play titled Great News!, and co-stage managed the whole night's events over two sold-out shows at the Haque Center of Acting and Creativity (HCAC).
LASALLE-IMDA WRITERSLAB 2019 (SCREENWRITER)
Selected through a highly-competitive screening process to join eleven other screenwriters in workshopping and developing original Series Bibles and Pilot Episodes under the guidance of an international industry-leading professional.
Following this, I successfully pitched the show concept to an international streaming service over a multi-stage pitching process, and am currently developing it with them as an original series.
