"Fran's insights into my script were invaluable. The report was thorough and gave me a perspective on the overall structure that I'd lost sight of. I was able to move forward to the final draft with a renewed confidence that's just impossible to do alone."

Duncan Roe - Writer/Director

"The report I had with Rachel was exactly what I needed to make the necessary changes before sending it out to production companies. The report came back quickly and the notes were all excellent. It was clear Rachel understood my script and where I wanted to position it within the market because all of her notes reflected the tone and style of the script. I particularly liked the additional suggestions and questions she provided me in the report - applying them elevated my 2nd draft to new heights."

Frank Lynne, Screenwriter & Author

"Fran is not only a wonderful screenwriter, but is the first person we turn to for script consultation. Her deep understanding of story, structure and character mixed with her unique perspective as an artist makes her the perfect choice to handle any genre and topic. She is professional in her approach, always good with communication and is a pleasure to work with."

Wolf E Rubea, Producer Ki Films

"Script Stable is the fifth company I've used (over the years) and I'm happy to say I've found my new local. I really love how they don't just tick boxes like so many other reports do. My report felt considered, informative and comprehensive. I will definitely be back with my next script."

Anne Fairway, Writer
