Industrial Scripts was founded due to a lack of independent script analysis services in the UK offered by script editors with proven industry credentials.
Our script editors and script doctors have been specifically chosen due to these credentials, and the fact that they remain active as industry script consultants today. As such we are able to offer a very high standard of script feedback, and one relevant in today’s film & TV marketplace.
***Important Note** – if you would like to book one of our in-house screenwriters or script doctors – Natalie Wreyford, Jon Gilbert or Daisy Allsop – please don’t hesitate to Contact Us with as much information as possible about your project, your timeframe, and your requirements and we will get back to you as a matter of urgency with a quote.
