“Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.”
Anton Chekhov, playwright
As a produced writer/director, I seek to empower my fellow storytellers with an understanding of the guiding principles of dramatic writing.
I offer a consultation service providing detailed comment on story and screenplay with a focus on strengthening intention and obstacle, the essential ingredients required for cooking up deliciously dramatic stories.
Unlike other script reading services, I do not provide reports but deliver all notes in arranged face-to-face meetings or over zoom/skype. I charge £100 for consulting on feature scripts which includes guidance on how to prepare your project for market and/or attract finance.
I know how challenging it can be to access meaningful experienced support as an emerging filmmaker and therefore I read shorts and student films for free. Emerging filmmakers that have significantly valued my input can use my PayPal tip jar if they wish to contribute towards my time.
