Dilpreet is convinced that she is not only a creative animation screenwriter & puppeteer but is also a Disney Princess, after all, her name translates from Punjabi-to-English as Heart Love Princess Warrior! She hopes that her Gatka & writing skills help her live up to her name’s meaning!

After graduating with a MA in Screenwriting from Met Film School, Dilpreet has had her animated comedy performed live in the heart of the West End in London’s Phoenix Artist Club. This script has gone on to become a Quarter-finalist in the US with BlueCat’s Screenplay Contest, the script reader said “this script is like Pixar’s version of Sausage Party. This is textbook proper storytelling.”

As well as this selection, Dilpreet’s other scripts have gone on to win Best Comedy Screenplay in the US with TopShorts, Cannes Screenplay Contest Official Finalist, Winner of Hollywood Just4Shorts Best Comedy Screenplay and a New York Screenplay Contest Official Finalist.

Aside from writing, Dilpreet has also worked as a Puppeteer on the Emmy award winning Jim Henson/Netflix show, ‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance’ & has worked as a Puppeteer Intern on the Sesame Street & CBeebies co-production ‘The Furchester Hotel’. She was delighted to voice and puppeteer ‘Muppet Dilpreet’ who appears in four episodes of the show! Dilpreet’s hands also appeared as ‘the hand’ with Grover in Sesame Street’s first animated special: ‘The Monster at the End of this Story’.

Like Disney’s Hercules, Dilpreet believes she can go the distance with her dreams. Cue the Rocky Balboa theme-tune!
