Helping Hands

It's never been easier to get your message out there... but it's never been harder to be heard.

There are three fundamentals: 

  1. Ensure your story is the best it can possibly be.

  2. Package and present yourself as a serious professional.

  3. Package and sell your story... using story! 

Together we are going to tailor you a plan that makes the most of your story idea, then sets you apart on the basis of quality and professionalism. Sad truth is, if you don't have these things, you are unlikely to get very far, even if your potential is more than good enough.

Producers & Investors

You are Defined by the Stories You Choose


Think of a famous mentor you would like your career to emulate. Their fame and legacy is inextricably linked to the stories they made. 

You need to read that again. The story. It's The Thing. Imagine being able to confidently and objectively identify a story with the greatest potential, and then having the knowledge to guide that potential through the gauntlet of development to create a winning final product. Wow. 

Using my unique, contemporary and proven methods for story analysis, evaluation, optimisation and investment is the very best way you can optimise your precious time onto the projects that will reflect well on you, gain a reputation for picking winners, make you some proper money and turn you into a legend.

Story Industry Professionals

Your Ability to Connect With the Story is Everything

Filmset Example

Director, Actor, Agent, Publisher, Editor, DoP... without a story none of us has a job. And without a good story, and without telling it well, we don't have a career. It is as clear and as brutal as that. Master your craft... or stagnate where you are today. 

Do you understand storification - the most powerful dynamic in every story ever made? Do you use knowledge gaps to create known, managed power in your story events? Do you have tools and methods for truly understanding if the story you are considering for investment of your time and effort will be a winner?

It's not just about earning a day-rate. You need to know when the quality is there so you push yourself hard at the right moments.
