Screenwriting Teaching and Consultation
Charles Harris co-founded the first screenwriters’ workshop in the world – London Screenwriters’ Workshop – which has now become the London-based screenwriting organisation Euroscript of which he is a director.
He runs workshops and lectures in screenwriting, directing and acting for universities, film schools, actors’ centres and film festivals around the world.
Script Assessment and Consultancy
As an award-winning writer and director who is still actively working in cinema, theatre and TV I bring practical creative experience to script consulting. For over twenty years I have advised writers, directors and producers on how to realise their vision on the page and on the screen. I have lectured at universities and film schools and run international masterclass workshops. Depending on the individual request I will give succinct bullet point coverage, detailed script assessment or rough-cut analysis, either in written form or in an informal face-to-face meeting, with follow-up questions and notes on further rewrites as needed.
“Thanks Charlie for such a constructive session. I did need just such a focused insight into the story and I came away with a new confidence that I could make it work. Invaluable.”
Holly Aylett, editor Vertigo Magazine, London, UK
“Thank you for your help. In fact I enjoyed rewriting my treatment!! Your questions inspired me with new ideas.”
C.F. – playwright & screenwriter, UK/France
“Hugely helpful. Thank you very much. I had a sneaky suspicion that there were problems in the areas you mentioned and I had missed some problems that you have also highlighted.”
N.V. – screenwriter, London, UK
“Thank you for the introduction to Charles Harris. You recommended him for a script evaluation for a UK based project of mine. He did a very thorough analysis and really helped to pinpoint where my script just wasn’t working. He’s also been very generous in responding to my e-mail queries. A really lovely gentleman.”
S.P – screenwriter, California
“Very many thanks for your time and very useful comments. I will re-write accordingly. I really appreciate your reading it.”
M.F. – screenwriter, Queensland, Australia
“I must admit that before I read your notes, I had prepared myself to ache somewhat. Surprisingly, the notes were so much of an eye-opener that I found myself feeling relieved.Your notes gave me a clear idea of what needs to be done.”
