Story Development

Screenwriting and Film Story Development – how can I get help? 

Some filmmakers are new and starting out – and others are very experienced – but all filmmakers have fresh stories that they plan to turn into films. Any Wide Angle member, new or experienced, can use our free Story Consultation Service to help develop your personal film project.

The Story Consultation service starts with a one-on-one meeting (at the Wide Angle Office or by phone) with Robert Watson, an ex-studio creative executive who advised on developing screenplays performed by Cate Blanchett, Russell Crowe, Judi Dench, Matt Damon and so on. Robert Watson has worked with writers of diverse ages, genders, ethnic backgrounds and genres.

This meeting is an ideal time to discuss your idea, receive some advice and work out whether you are ready for regular mentorship to develop your film project.

To access this free service for Wide Angle members, just give us a call on 6223 8344 or send us an email telling us that you are interested... and an idea of days and times that you are available to book a session.  

Recently, Wide Angle members have taken advantage of this free service  to develop diverse projects. Some projects are starting out and others are already very developed. Both kinds can benefit from story mentoring. Members' projects cover a wide range of stories, from true-life to many kinds of fiction.  Many kinds of format are mentored such as:

  • short film scripts
  • television series
  • feature movies
  • miniseries. 

Your project starts with an idea. Even at idea stage, it is never too early to seek advice on developing the idea. If you want help learning how to write a screenplay, this is for you. Or you may be a film professional with your draft screenplay and you are seeking confidential help to improve the draft.
