Resurgence Productions is a film production company based in Melbourne, Australia. Resurgence was started by writer and producer Jenna Cosgrove in 2015, with the aim to make compelling genre films that (above all else) entertain.
Resurgence is particularly committed to creating stories with interesting, multi-faceted female characters, whether they are leads or supports.
Jenna is a writer, producer, and marketing specialist. Her dystopian web series, 2121, starring TV legend Gary Sweet (Steven Speilberg’s The Pacific) and Briar Rose (AMCs The Dead Lands), premiered in 2020 and currently has over 1 million views online.
Previous to that, the short documentary web series Masters at Work, which she produced with The 8 Percent, premiered on Virgin Australia.
As a screenwriter, Jenna co-wrote a major Australian horror film with veteran screenwriter Greg Woodland. Jenna has written and produced six short films including The Falcon, The Red Palace, Traffic, and Air, which screened at 9 international film festivals. In 2018 Jenna produced feature film Nova Star with stalwart indie director Daniel Armstrong, and Strongman Pictures. Nova Star is due to premiere in early 2021.
Jenna’s earliest love was for fiction, and her YA novel Tattoo was published in 2016. The book trailer she produced for Tattoo was nominated for a prestigious Golden Trailer award alongside work from Harper Collins, among others.
Most recently Jenna was chosen to be part of the ABC Fresh Start Fund, to develop a dark comedy animation series.
Resurgence collaborates with multiple production companies and brands. Previous collaborations include The 8 Percent (commercial work including for brands such as Virgin Australia and Hermes Paris); Strongman Pictures (feature film Nova Star, premiering 2021); The Black Syndicate Collective (short film Air, which screened at 9 international film festivals).
Resurgence is currently developing a dark comedy animation series for ABC’s Fresh Start Fund, and are in pre-production on a sci-fi thriller feature, to film in 2021.
