Having issues with your story?
Script not developing as you’d hoped?
Lost somewhere between Scene 4 and Scene 7, with no idea how to fill that gap?
Here at ShoeHorn, we are excited to be a part of any new story. We love creating them, writing them and turning them into something visually exciting. We also believe in sharing skills and supporting our fellow artists in the field. This is why our resident writing team is helping avoid the stress and administration of dealing with writer’s agents, and offering their skills out as our freelance script doctor service.
Our award winning, in-house writers have over twenty years experience and success at national and international levels. They have worked with 20th Century Fox, BBC, ITV and Sony (to name a few) and have had three screenplays optioned (one of which went into production), two books and numerous short stories published, as well as several successful fringe theatre festival runs across the country.
So if you need help with your script, a professional service by a collective of experienced and successful writers, let us support you in your creation and help you get back on track. We offer a fast, affordable, honest and professional critique of your current work, suggestions as to where improvements may best serve the story and a report to support our findings. We offer collaborations and editing services, as well as completion services, should you be happy with our critique.
Let us help you find the happy ending to your story and get you back on to your yellow brick road!
