First up, we’re not going to pretend we’re a high-end Script editing service for well established writers. We’re a new and enthusiastic entrant to this market with an unstifled creative edge that we know you'll find refreshing. In keeping with our newbie status we offer a range of services that won’t break the bank.
If you’ve had a brilliant idea for a Radio, TV show or Feature Film and don’t know the first thing about Scriptwriting - or you simply don’t have the time to put fingers to keyboard - Gentle Prod can help.
You can commission us to unravel the story from your idea and draft it into a document you can use. From an Outline or Treatment for a crowdfunding proposition, to a Pilot episode that you want to doorstep a top producer with. There’s no set fee as we’d need to know the format and duration of your story, but normally we’ll quote for a first draft and one or two sets of editing/rewrites, with further rounds of rewrites negotiable.
We are happy to work with student Directors or Producers - if you’ve got a story that needs polishing up, but we always recommend you seek out the support of student scriptwriters first, collaborate and learn together, it's better that way.
As well as proof reading, we can help you get to the nub of what might not be working in your script and story.
Whether it’s developing character, streamlining dialogue, ensuring harmonious tone of voice or conveying a consistent mise en scène. It's a bit like baking. You might have the ingredients, but you need someone to help you put them all together so the end result is just tastier.
As with Scriptwriting, fees depend on the length, duration and format of the work, but you can rest assured our rates are competitive. If you'd like to find out more about this project contact Greg by phone or email.
Sometimes you get stuck with a story - writer’s block, an ideas vacuum, black-hole of creative doom - call it what you will.
However hard you try you can’t see where it goes, or more importantly, you can’t see where it goes and maintains interest. Sometimes you need a fresh pair of creative eyes.Giving your audience the right measure of twists and turns is usually what makes a good story great. So if you’re in a creative rut with it, then give Greg a shout and sound him out. For a round or two of beers he’ll put his creative lobe to use on your story conundrum - contact Greg by phone or email.
Presentation can be the difference between getting noticed - or not.
If you need a poster for your production, a snazzy synopsis for your short or simply need your idea designed into a glitzy treatment for pitching to producers at the next Marché du Film or Screenwriter's Festival- we can help with that.
Design of marketing collateral and copy is something Greg's been doing for over 10 years as a freelancer - before getting into writing - it's what puts the food on the table.
