Supporting writers and producers to access experienced script developers who provide thoughtful story development to move a project closer to production.
Script to Screen’s Script Development Service provides access to experienced, thoughtful story developers who can help you progress your screen story in a meaningful way. The service has been designed in response to an industry need for access to paid feature film, short film and limited series consultations and edits by quality script developers.
Script to Screen’s Development Model
Our Script Development Service is underpinned by manaakitanga (showing respect, generosity and care), excellence, and rigour. The service is not about experts telling writers what they should do, it is about providing thoughtful interventions that move the work forward and make it stronger.
There are six services, each begins with a conversation with your developer to explore your intention, motivation, and the kaupapa of your story. The writer may record conversations. This service allows script developers to work to their own style, and there is no universal approach for writers and projects, so the service descriptions are a guide. Much of the developers’ work is reading and preparing their feedback for the development meetings.
Our script developers are working creatives who do development work when they have time available. You can read their biographies to work out who could be good for your project depending on the type of work you are developing, the stage you are at, the genre of your story, and the kaupapa of the project. Script to Screen can also help you work out who the best developer may be for you.
