Matthew Cooper, Script Writer, Director and Script Consultant

As one of the busiest scriptwriter’s for hire and UK script consultant’s I’ve been lucky enough to have been rushed off my feet in 2019 and 2020 with various commissions which have come through this website. But for the next 12 months at least, my capacity to take on work is going to be very limited.

I’ll still try my very best to offer my heavily in demand UK script coverage service and Script reading service, but my capacity will be reduced so please contact me for details on my availability (you can get in touch with me on

If I can’t personally review your script–I can recommend other professional screenwriters who will give an expert opinion.

In 2020, I released my feature film debut as a director Markham, which despite its low budget has garnered some interest. For the next 18 months I’m lucky enough to have secured work as a writer/director with development funds to realise other low budget horror projects.

I’m really excited to announce that one project will be a low budget re-imaging of H. P. Lovecraft’s ‘At the Mountains of Madness’ a real dream project to work on.

I’ll update the blog on here as often as I can, and I’ll share news on the website dedicated to my work as a director.
