Script reports & Consultations
Outside of my own projects, I have worked with many other writers helping them to hone their own stories whether it's with structure, story, character or dialogue, or stepping in as a ghostwriter to edit and/or polish their scripts and screenplays.
I provide honest and constructive feedback in the form of detailed script notes.
My rates are:
£400 for feature scripts (up to 120 pages) -- 3 to 4 page report
£280 for 1 hour TV scripts (up to 70 pages) -- 3 to 4 page report
£200 for half-hour scripts (up to 35 pages) -- 1 to 2 page report
£120 for 1st ten pages of your script -- 1 page report
A thorough analysis of what works, what doesn’t, and why, and how to make it really stand out.
£2,500 for an in-depth feature script consultation
This is the same service as above however, it is much more in-depth. I will provide a report of around 13 pages, going into a lot more detail about what needs to be done to really make the script shine, and how.
£5,000 for an annotated screenplay.
With this service, you will get the 13-page report as above, but I will also make changes within your feature script (using Fade In or Final Draft). I will essentially edit your script and offer suggestions to what could be written instead.
Note: I will not rewrite your script, but I will make changes to it.
If your script isn't formatted properly, I will do that here too so that you will end up with a professionally formatted screenplay.
My notes can usually be ready within a four-week turnaround upon receipt of payment. Other packages on request (rewrites, formatting, script editing, script consulting from concept stage through to delivery, treatments, television bibles, short films etc).
I take full payment upfront.
Please email me to book, or find out more.

Reviews for Spirit Warriors:
"Mail on Sunday"
"This impressive new drama series, aimed at the entire family, brings a mixture of martial arts and CGI technology to the small screen as five ordinary British children find themselves in an extraordinary world of magic and myth."
“Daily Mail Weekend"
"This first episode sets the scene in spectacular fashion, and if its stunning effects are an indicator of things to come, then it should prove an unmissable children's adventure."
"... clever new fantasy drama for children which includes "Crouching Tiger"-style martial arts with CGI characters and live-action"
