Script Consultancy

This is a personal and exclusive consultancy service to support the development of excellent projects. I want to dream it too, to make your idea come true. So projects are only accepted for consultancy on the basis of their commercial and artistic potential. Writers have gone on to have successful careers as feature film directors, short film makers, playwrights, documentary makers and TV writers for Eastenders, Casualty, Doctors and other productions. I only accept a small number of projects per year and progress these projects with the writer or director, preparing them to take to the industry.
