Service Description

I have been writing creatively for 15+ years, the last ten being primarily focused on Fiction, Film (Short and Feature) and Theatre.

In this time I have written:
thirteen short film scripts, five short stories, two plays, three feature film scripts
and numerous novels.

In between writing and working as a Director and Editor in the film industry, I have been working as a Film and Media Lecturer at a variety of educational establishments ranging from Glasgow High School to Glasgow University. One of my main tasks in this role is to scrutinise and improve the scripts and ideas of the students. I have analysed dozens of scripts over a number of years, providing invaluable assistance to numerous students and also improving my own critical capacity.

Due to my experience in the film industry I am in a unique position amongst screenwriters on Elance as I know exactly what information is required for the script readers and the film crew. I am also fully versed in structuring a screenplay to suit a realistic film narrative, I do not just repeat and interpret structures that I have read in a book about writing. I know how to make your ideas work on screen.

I don't just write for money. I write because I enjoy it more than anything else and I can guarantee a service that will not only be professional and on time but also personal, creative and client driven.
