Consultancy

I’ve been offering script consultancy services by word-of-mouth for a few years now, and I’ve decided to ‘go public’ about them.

WHAT I CAN OFFER
I’d be delighted to read your screenplay and offer feedback via either a written report or a Zoom call. I’m happy to tailor this service to your requirements, depending on what you want to focus on. The charge is £155 if the screenplay is 120 pages or less (charges will vary for longer works).

WHAT YOU SHOULD EXPECT
I can share my thoughts about the usual areas of concern such as structure, pacing, dialogue, characterisation, and so on. Alternatively, unlike many cookie-cutter services, I’d be delighted to focus my feedback on any specific problems that you’ve been having and to suggest ways in which you might attempt to solve them. I aim to make every feedback session or report as positive and useful as possible. If I didn’t genuinely think I could help you on your screenwriting journey, I wouldn’t offer this service.

WHAT I AM AND WHAT I’M NOT
I don’t put myself forward as a magic cure-all or an all-knowing guru. I’m an active screenwriter who has sold screenplays on both sides of the Atlantic, and I continue to lecture different aspects of screenwriting at various universities (and at large events like London Screenwriters’ Festival). I’ve also worked as an uncredited script doctor on projects where the screenplay wasn’t quite ready for the cameras.

I’m a cheerful and approachable kind of guy, and I’m happy to chat in a pretty informal way about your screenplay.

If you’re interested, please complete the form below and I’ll get straight back to you! Thanks for your interest.
