Horror script writer for hire

Hi and welcome to my website, my name is Matthew Cooper and I’m a produced and broadcast script writer for hire based in the UK.


I’ve got over 100 hours of broadcast TV to my name and I’ve been Bafta shortlisted as well Royal Television Society nominated as script writer. You can find a partial list of my film and TV credits on the IMDb, the list includes award winning work on Emmerdale, Hollyoaks and Eastenders.

I now work as script consultant and script writer for hire online and I work in all kinds of genres and on all sorts of productions ranging from online video, TV work, spec screenplays and short films.

I’m particularly interested in speaking to first time filmmakers working in the horror genre. I love horror films, and having grown up in the 80s and 90s some of my key influences are John Carpenter, David Cronenberg, Stephen King, George A. Romero and many others.

My directorial debut, the rubber reality horror thriller Markham will be released in 2020.

If you’re looking to get an indie horror film off of the ground I’m willing to work to a reduced fee for the right horror project. That includes work on full length original features, shorts, serials or web serials. Contact me for more information on matcoop23@yahoo.co.uk
