Script-writer and script editor.

Greg Millin graduated from the University of Melbourne's School of Medicine, and was working in clinical practice when he wrote the script for the 1982 film The Clinic, a set of humorous vignettes set in a venereal disease clinic. The script was nominated for best original screenplay at the 1982 AFI Awards, and Millin began to pursue a career as a full-time writer.

Thorughout the 1980s and the 1990s, he wrote scripts for a wide range of television programs, including c/o The Bartons (1987), Kaboodle (1987), E Street (1990-1993), Police Rescue (1994), Flipper (1995), Mirror Mirror (1995), Home and Away (1994-1997), Heartbreak High (1995-1996), Mirror Mirror 2 (1997), Big Sky (1998), and Fast Tracks (1998).

Since 2000, Millin has written scripts for McLeod's Daughters (2008) and Out of the Blue (2008), as well as for children's programs Wicked Science (2003-2005), Staines Down Drains (2007), and Legend of Enyo (2010).

Given his professional background, it is unsurprising that Millin has also written for a number of medical dramas, including G.P. (1989-1990, Medivac (1996), and MDA (1996), as well as penning the script for feature film Glass Babies (1985).

As well as working extensively as a script-writer, Millin has worked as a story editor (on G.P., Horace and Tina, Pirate Islands, Wicked Science), script consultant (on UK/South African feature film Skin, released in 2008), and script editor (on McLeod's Daughters and Legend of Enyo). He was also the co-developer of Holly's Heroes (2005).
