Award winning Screenwriter for hire

My name is Matthew Cooper; I’m an award winning British screenwriter with credits on all the main UK broadcast networks. I’m available at the moment as a script writer for hire  and UK script consultant for clients across the world, but focussing specifically on the UK and the USA.

As a scriptwriter and screenwriter I’ve won various awards and been nominated for many others.

I’ve been BAFTA shortlisted twice.

I was nominated as Best Network Newcomer by the Royal Television Society for my work on Emmerdale.

I was winner of the first ever Lloyds Bank Channel Four Film Challenge in the UK, as well as the Oscar Moore Screenwriting Prize sponsored by the Guardian newspaper and I’ve been a finalist in various BBC competitions.

You can find a partial list of my film and TV credits on the IMDb. Although this does not include my work as a ghost writer, which includes feature films which have been produced in the UK and the United States.

My specialist genres are:

  • Action films
  • Horror films
  • Science Fiction
  • High Concept Thrillers
  • Westerns
  • All of the above with a comedy mix

I work quickly, to standard contracts and only use agency representation when I feel it’s required.
