An experienced Writer-Producer who does more than wrestle with words, Dorette was selling tickets to her self-conceptualised backyard concerts long before she hit the school benches.
Her passion for entertaining people led her to content development and scriptwriting. She nurtures ideas, shapes them and journeys with them until they come to life. She has graced many story rooms, taking concepts from mere ideas, to high-quality, produced content in various genres of live-action television, feature film and animation. She has developed and co-written dramas and sitcoms for Moja Love (Channel 157, DSTV), SABC 1 & 2 and E-TV.
The animated short film she wrote and produced, “Ruby & Roach”, was awarded Best South African Short Film & Best African Short Film at the Durban International Film Festival (DIFF) and won numerous awards abroad.
She is equally at home working as producer, storyteller, editor, strategist, motivator, and sometimes…therapist.
