“I wanted to write a short note to say how much I enjoy working with WriteMovies. The professional way in which you deal with both 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 screenplay to a higher level can’t go wrong by turning to WriteMovies for feedback.” – Tom Craig.

Here’s some feedback we’ve received from clients who have had Elite Consultancy with Tom.
“I wanted you to know I had a great talk with Tom Craig this evening. We spoke for more than an hour.
The important thing is he liked the script, so it wasn’t like he told me to scrap the work and start over doing something else.”
“He was very complimentary and he gave me two ideas that I am weaving into the plot…”
“He gave me some real insight into what it would take for this good script to be great. He put me on the right track and I’m eager to apply what he said.”
“he confirmed my belief the country in which to find a sympathetic producer.”
Tom has also suggested “…producers that he would recommend contacting.”
