Phone Consulting FAQs

Does this mean I have to pay every time I talk to you?

No - Only if you want to consult with me about your project before signing an agreement for a screenwriting service.

What if I prefer to phone as I don't use email very often; do I have to pay a consulting fee if I want to contact you and tell you more about my project?

I wish I could speak to everyone about their film and TV ideas, but honestly I've learned over the past 19 years that I just wouldn't have any time to write as I'd be talking on the phone all day.  So, if you are unable to email the details to me, it would be best to pay for a phone consultation to discuss collaborating together on your project.

Can I ask questions via email?

Yes!  Please do as I'm typically reachable by email every day.  So, if you have any questions about hiring me, or whether I am available to work on your project, or anything else that springs to mind, please don't hesitate to email me.  My inbox is always open!

Are you seeking a one-on-one consultation with a produced screenwriter to discuss your project?  

Not sure?  Have a look and see if any of the following scenarios apply:

  • Do you have a great idea for a film or TV show and you want to share it confidentially, to receive honest feedback / guidance?
  • Do you want to brainstorm plot ideas or discuss how to overcome a script-related challenge with a professional screenwriter?
  • Do you want to talk openly about the specifics of your current script / book / story / intellectual property?
  • Do you have questions about the industry and want to find out more about 'how it works'?
  • Are you scratching your head about how to structure a script, or do you want to ask a technical formatting question?
  • Or perhaps you want to test your new logline or try out your elevator pitch for your project? 


If so, or if you want to ask any other burning questions about your project in a confidential phone call with an industry pro, then you need to Talk to the Dude! 


Of course, exchanging ideas are an expected part of any collaboration process, but if you would like to speak about any specifics or discuss creative details via telephone prior to signing an agreement, then there is a phone consultation fee - payable in advance of booking a time and date for the call, which will be scheduled via email, at your convenience.​


As a result, all of the confidential advice, ideas, recommendations and creative input discussed in this phone consultation are "works made for hire" and will belong to you - no strings attached!  You retain all ownership of your ideas / story.

Moreover, if you opt to hire the Screenwriter Dude for any screenwriting services in relation to the project(s) that we discuss, then this initial phone consultation fee will be automatically deducted from the total project price.  Bonus!


National and international long distance charges are also covered 100% by the phone consultation fee when you provide your number to call you directly.


And there's also a new option available if you'd like me to read your script or any relevant materials in preparation for our call, so that we are on the same page when we talk about your project.
