Filmmaking requires solid planning. A fully realized screenplay, a clear visual strategy, and a well-organized, passionate cast and crew.

I offer consulting services and strategies to help get your film, television show, or web series ready to shoot. I can provide expertise on any and all things related to pre-production — from story development, to script notes, to casting and crewing up, to finding locations or developing shoot schedules, to honing shot lists and storyboards.

My price is $200 per hour. Prospective clients, please email me about your film and needs, and I will provide a cost estimate.

For 25 years, I have worked in the film industry in a range of capacities. Script development as a member of Ron Howard’s creative team at Imagine Entertainment. Freelance story consultant for the major studios, such as Universal Pictures and Paramount Pictures. Filmmaker and winner of the Special Jury Award at SXSW Film Festival for Up With Me (IFC Films). University lecturer of film studies at The New School in New York City. Author of The Collaborative Director (Routledge Press), a book about filmmaking from the perspective of collaboration and communication.
