I currently read and consult for Shore Scripts and Scriptwriter’s Network, for which I have written hundreds of development reports, but I also offer a private consultancy service for which I can offer more bespoke and in-depth services.

I am happy to talk to writers, producers, and directors about their needs and to engage with them for follow-up questions and further development.

As a writer who has studied the craft of writing for over ten years and written script reports for five years I have a great understanding of story and character development and enjoy getting to the heart of a script and helping writers to improve their work and develop their skill.

Some feedback I have received both privately and through Shore Scripts:

“From the script coverage I have commissioned on three feature films that have been successfully completed, this is by far the best one. The level of depth, analytical approach, and most of all emphasizing areas within a script that are central was a standout. As a filmmaker, I highly recommend Blaise.” – Writer /Director

“Blaise reserves a resourceful knowledge of storytelling techniques, and his reports provide a constructive and respectful view of the story’s basis. His review of our TV treatment has been exhaustively solid and insightful, and his collaborative mindset has made beautiful ideas pop into our minds for development, reinforcing our confidence in this project. Thank you Blaise” – Writer

“I just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed writing this script over the last few months. I wouldn’t have been able to get anywhere near where I am now, without your brilliant ideas and advice. Feels like we’ve come a long way!” – Writer

“Thank you for a quick response! It’s nice to have professional eyes on something I’ve looked at for so long. These were helpful words and I feel prepared to rewrite my script. Thanks for offering this analysis.” – Writer

“Thanks for expediting our notes. They were excellent. Really helpful.” – Writer

“I have just completed a first draft of a new script that we’re developing. It was super helpful having some feedback on the last one and I was hoping to get you to do a 5 page report on the new script. Are you available for a read?” – Writer /Director

“Blaise was an absolute pleasure to work with. He gave me very descriptive notes and provided those notes in a very timely manner. I highly recommend hiring.”- Writer

“I used to run a film school, and I would have happily hired the person who provided such astute feedback. The tone is encouraging, the suggestions strong and in tune with the project. My thanks”. – Writer via Shore Scripts

“I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you so much for the 5-page coverage which I found very encouraging and also super helpful.” – Writer/Director, via Shore Scripts

“Hello, thank you very much for your review of my script. It seems as though you did in fact really take the time to give me a critique specific to my scene which I really appreciate. Also, you have highlighted some very key issues and possible which could definitely help me to enhance my screenplay.” – Writer

“Hey, Blaise – excellent job again! I will do a deep dive into this for draft 2, have a fair few ideas around the character arcs as suggested.. 🙂 Thanking you again” – Writer /Director


TV Bible Notes (£70):

TV Pilots are being written more and more, and while feedback on the scripts is common, the TV bible seems to have been mostly ignored. However, the bible is an essential part of the project and should be ready to go out with the pilot if requested. They indicate whether the TV series has legs, and give an idea of how it will progress and what it is building towards.

TV Bibles vary widely in length and format, and there is no set way to present them. I would hope to see areas devoted to character bios and arcs, the season arc and design for future seasons, and indeed the overall series arc. Other areas such as the world, tone, theme, visual style, and back story should also be covered, and anything else the writer thinks is relevant.

I would hope a TV bible would be five to fifteen pages long, and the report would be two to three pages. The cost of this service is £70 (and can be combined with feedback on the TV Pilot).

Standard Development report (£100):

This report will run to 2 or 3 pages and look at the premise and its potential, the characters and their arcs, the story, plot, structure, pace, dialogue, and world of the script. It will point out problematic areas, offer solutions, and a way forward for the next draft.

In-depth development report (£150)

This is a deep dive into the script and will look more at the underlying aspects of the project. What are the themes and what is the writer trying to say? Is this the best way to get that message across? Like the standard report, it will examine the premise, characters and their arcs, the story, plot, structure, pace, dialogue, and world of the script, but it will delve deeper and also consider the visual language and metaphors, the market potential for the project, the theme and how successfully it comes through, the prose writing style in the actual script, and will be introduced by a scoring grid highlighting areas that need work and areas that are satisfactory, good or hopefully, excellent. It will be around five to six pages long.

Bespoke services:
