Screenwriting consultancy

As a UK script consultant I often get asked by screenwriters to take a look at their work, and I usually get asked what does a script consultant do?

The first thing I’d recommend that you do is read my page on my script reporting services

After that, if you have any questions please drop me a line on

Working as a script consultant I find that my services are not a one-size fits all.  Some writers just require a script report; some need my storyline services when a plot needs fixing. Some writers need help with character – or dialogue. I’m good with both.

Some clients who contact me need the full selection of my services – they need a pitch, a storyline brief and a complete script written from scratch. I can do all of this.

You can read about the wide range of services that I carried out in 2017 in this blogpost summing up last year (it was very busy!)

If you’re not sure I can help with your screenwriting needs just get in touch and ask – I won’t bite.

Below is my showreel – showcasing some of my work.
