I offer a range of evaluative, editorial and collaborative services to people writing for the stage or screen.
TREATMENT & STORY EVALUATION
If you have written the treatment for a screen or stage play and would like an evaluation of its possibilities or require further input into how the story might work better, this service is for you. I will write a report on your story’s strengths and weaknesses and suggest how you may be able to sharpen and tighten the plot, and the structure of your work. If your treatment offers a view of the characters in the piece, my report may include a short review of the characters to help develop them further.
There are two things I do with screenplays at the moment. You may have a story that you wish to develop into a screenplay for a movie. I am able to work with you in two ways:
Option A: I ghost-write the screenplay for you. You take full credit for the screenplay and if it goes all the way to production, you also reap 100% of what it earns. I will ghost-write your screenplay for a one-off fee.
Option B: I co-write your screenplay with you. It may be that I write some parts of the script and you write others. When it is done, I will anchor the script so that when the film gets produced, audiences will not be able to tell where one writer stopped and the other began.
Option C: I write the screenplay based on your story or treatment and take sole credit for the screenplay while you are credited for the story.
Option D: Editing only. With this option, you write your entire script yourself, or perhaps you are a film producer or director with a script you have already acquired and would like it edited. I will look at everything from characterisation, through dialogue, plausibility, accuracy of research and credibility of devices used within the period settings and the overall grammar of film. I may also question deliverability of effects and agree whether to edit out or employ an alternative effect.
Editing only. For stage plays, apart from evaluation o f story or treatment, I only offer an editing service to get your play production or publication-ready. I bring to this the benefit of my training and experience as a playwright, actor, director and scene designer. I will therefore bring all elements of theatre into play to make your script work.
