Story Consulting

If you’ve finished a screenplay, congratulations! It’s an enormous accomplishment to complete a script and you should feel proud of yourself. But in a sense, this is only the beginning. As the saying goes, “writing is re-writing,” and that’s where the insight of an experienced professional who can bring fresh perspective and genuine real-world expertise to your work can be extremely beneficial.

You don’t get many second chances to submit your script to someone in a position to advance your career, so it’s essential to put your best foot forward when you do. I can offer detailed feedback to help empower and guide you to bring your script to its highest possible realization before you approach a contest, agent, manager or producer.

And if you’re not quite there yet, if you’re at the outline stage and need feedback, are trying to decide which of a number of prospective ideas to pursue, or simply stuck somewhere in between, a consultation with someone who not only understands these challenges first-hand, but also has the experience of a having been both a high-level development executive and a produced writer can help get you back on the right track.

Because my schedule can often be booked weeks in advance, the best way to be sure to get your script read when you’re ready is to book a consultation ahead of time. This way you’ll have a deadline, AND a consult appointment waiting. Take a look at the various options I have available below and feel free to contact me to if you’d like to discuss which approach might work best for you. I look forward to working with you and empowering you to make your writing the best it can be.
