  • Film Doctor – On Call for Your Film!

    FILM DOCTOR is an international script and film consultancy based in London, UK, offering script reading, script editing and film evaluation services.

    We also offer FREE weekly articles offering 'prescriptions' for film craft, film business and life.


    No two projects are alike. So why read "general film story" books and attend "making film" courses, when you can learn specific tips catered to YOUR film or script needs?

    Good doctors don't dispense the same medicine to everyone - they make decisions based on your symptoms and your needs.

    Film Doctor offers the same for your film/script - individual assistance and remedies based on where YOU want to take it.

    No two films are alike!


    "I'm pretty much semi-relying on this feed to keep me up to date on film news! Good articles! Wise, helpful, informed."
