Script and Screenplay development service

Hi, my name is Matthew Cooper. I’m a BAFTA shortlisted and Royal Television Society nominated script writer, with credits on produced feature films as well as over 200 hours of broadcast TV, which includes award winning episodes of Eastenders and Emmerdale. You can find some of my broadcast credits here on the IMDb.

As the leading script consultant and script writer for hire I’ve had over 25 years’ experience in the film and TV industry, stretching back to the 1990s, my first short film won the Lloyds Bank Channel Four Film Challenge, and started the career of Ewan McGregor.

I’ve also won The Oscar Moore Screenplay Prize, been placed in various competitions run by the BBC as well as working with high profile directors on feature film projects, web serials and award winning short films.

Script development service

I offer an intensive, bespoke, script development service for writers and producers or directors looking to improve a script or screenplay. This service has been used extensively by professionals in the industry, but it’s open to all projects where I think I can help improve a script before it goes to market or goes into production.

The first step to get me on board is to contact me and hire me to do my in-depth screenplay analysis. This service will allow me to highlight strengths and weaknesses of your script and outline a plan how I can help improve the project.
