My latest work – a quick update

Matthew Cooper Director
Matthew Cooper, Script Writer, Director and Script Consultant

As a script consultant and script writer for hire 2020 has been one of my busiest years, despite Covid 19 my services have been more in demand than ever.

2020 has also seen the release of my first feature length film as a director, Markham  which has had good feedback (you can see it yourself on Vimeo on demand or by buying the DVD here).  

I enjoyed the making of Markham so much that I’m moving straight into my next micro budget feature film as a director ‘Deal of the Dead’.   This is a striking sci-fi/horror hybrid and we’ll be shooting this from October 2020 onwards and working on the complex practical effects.

That means there may be less content on this website and more content on the website that showcases my work as a director – Matthew Cooper Director  – and on my production company website –  Warehouse Transmedia.

I’ll still be offering my  script consultant services including my award winning script coverage, script reading and script development services, but my capacity to take on this work will be reduced.

If in doubt, drop me an email on
