Story Analysis for Film and Television

I help professional story-writers navigate the creative landscape of their work from ideation to production.

Writing for film and television takes more than good ideas and an address in New York City. My clients rely on my insight and experience to move their projects in direction studios will find attractive.

Here are just a few of the major projects I have helped bring to fruition:

Get Ready to Pitch

As a reader for major production companies, I know what they’re looking for: what excites them, and what the deal-breakers are.

I have critiqued over 400 properties to help them make it on screen on many of the major networks.

The following are a selection of networks who have bought pitches from my clients:

Sound Familiar?

I have a great story, but I don’t think my characters are all that compelling (or maybe I hate my characters.)

I’m stuck! I have a story and can’t get started

I can’t get to a green light

I’ve worked with (and spent a bundle on) ‘script doctors’ who have not helped me to realize what I was trying to do. Gail seems able to see and articulate what’s working in a script and what needs to be improved to make it marketable. She’s a sensitive and decent person who knows how to make suggestions that are constructive, not destructive.
