Elite Mentoring from a top producer or screenwriter
Hire an award-winning Screenplay Ghostwriter to tell your story for the screen!
WriteMovies are YOUR Script Development partners, with screenwriting contests, development and pitching built on the way the industry really works – and we know exactly how it works because our founder was Hollywood agent of Quentin Tarantino and many others. We wouldn’t be here after more than 20 years if we didn’t know what we’re doing.
Since we were established in Hollywood in 1999 we’ve been the company who help you choose the best scripts and projects, develop them to their fulfil their potential, and get them sold and produced, with some notable SUCCESS STORIES including Oscar-nominated Andrew Niccol (THE TRUMAN SHOW, GATTACA and much more) and Iris Yamashita (Clint Eastwood’s LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA). We’re the bridge who work with top industry pros and get stuff made (just look at our ELITE MENTORS and our FOUNDER Alex Ross, and the movie we produced from a winning script which was distributed by Warner Bros), and give all new writers access to the top of the industry as you can see HERE. We REWARD writers through CONTESTS with substantial prizes and promotion, we develop them (often at our own expense), give them access to top producers, and we guarantee to PITCH the ones that catch our eye to industry – find out some select examples of how we’ve been pitching HERE, and remember we’re always working behind the scenes for our winners with our extensive industry contacts. Check out our WINNERS to see how, and look at our amazing TESTIMONIALS from top producers and writers who’ve progressed thanks to us.
Our WEBSITE, FACEBOOK, TWITTER and INSTAGRAM are hubs for the latest news and insights from the industry, to tell writers and producers whatever they need to know, every day. We provide exclusive features with top industry pros like STEVEN KNIGHT and VFX guru HABIB ZARGARPOUR and give an ANALYST’S EYE to big movies past and present. And we’re building up a comprehensive series of GUIDES to everything a screenwriter or producer has to know in order to achieve successful projects.
Our MENTORING section is the place to turn your script or project from a dream into a done deal. At industry-beating rates, we offer you industry-standard DEVELOPMENT NOTES to take your script to the next level, or script reports summarizing your script’s content and prospects (STUDIO CONSULTANCIES). Our CONFIDENTIAL STUDIO MANUAL (no longer on sale) is currently being made into a book. We also provide intensive PITCH COACHING and access to ELITE MENTORS – top producers and writers who’ll give you their own time to help you develop your project. We’ve launched an ACADEMY – a unique virtual film school – that will get you far closer to the real industry than any film school can, for a lot less money, through online Mini-Masterclasses you can work through in your own time from home, even achieving published articles in the process – and we have lighter versions you can complete more casually or in smaller chunks. And if you wanna be a script analyst yourself, we offer a VIRTUAL INTERNSHIP to show you the ropes.
Make the most of our ARTICLES AND FEATURES to know everything you need to know about the latest films and scripts news and insights. Find out how to write a great TITLE, LOGLINE and ONE-PAGE PITCH, and follow our WRITING TIPS for achieving greatness and avoiding fatal mistakes. Read our exclusive WRITING INSIGHTS to take your understanding and skills to deeper and deeper levels.
There’s much more to announce soon so keep coming back every week to get ahead of the game with WriteMovies!
I wanted to write a short note to say how much I enjoy working with WriteMovies. The professional way in which you work with the writers and the analysts makes the experience of giving and receiving screenplay notes a painless one and as a result allows the creative process to flow smoothly. Any writer looking to move their script to a higher level can’t go wrong by turning to WriteMovies for feedback.
Since we were established in Hollywood in 1999 we’ve been the company who help you choose the best scripts and projects, develop them to their fulfil their potential, and get them sold and produced, with two Oscar-nominated writers among our notable success stories. Our acclaimed services and contests mirror how your script will fare in the industry right now.
