Script writer for hire…

As a UK script writer for hire I get clients approaching for all kinds of projects.  Recently I wrote nearly 70 minutes of comedy/drama for an eLearning platform. Such is the digital age that projects come in all shapes and sizes, but my real love is film…

At the moment I’m working on a few really interesting projects. One, which I’ve talked about before is working with a producer on turning three novels into a trilogy of films. This is a big project and the work is exciting and interesting.

I’m also in the early stages of starting a horror script in collaboration with a client who found my services online. Being an experienced script writer for hire in the digital world means I’m never sure what projects will pop up next. I often get emails in the middle of the night from US producers looking for a quick rewrite on a sequence or two (sometimes they’ll even be in the middle of shooting the actual film).

I work quickly, to standard contracts and I’ve got great skills as a storyliner – which means I can often show potential clients what I’m going to do before an actual word of script is written – I can pin point potential problems in story. I pride myself on it.

So, while I’m very busy at the moment please feel free to contact me if you need a script writer for hire. Have a look at my script writing samples or my showreel if you’re not sure.
