We need help to tell our stories
There are lots of thoughtful, perceptive people out there – people who desperately want to tell stories through screenwriting. But too many of them can’t yet do it because they don’t have the skills or the connections.
Some people struggle to find fresh ideas. Others have fantastic ideas, but not the confidence or craft to get them onto the page.
Even those writing great screenplays can find it difficult to make their stories heard. Agents are swamped with scripts, and have very little time to search for new talent. And there are loads of people out there offering conflicting advice about what to do.
Having been in the industry for decades, we understand all this. And we’re here to help.
We’re here to help you fly
