Looking for a London based Writing Collaborator/Partner

Matt West

I'm a filmmaker, mostly in the sense that I direct films and I write most of what I make. However, I'd say I'm a writer only in terms of creating a broad concept and narrative, but lacking in beautifully connecting the dots, breathing life into characters through their dialogue and expanding on the details.

I'd love to meet a writer who can compliment me (and hopefully me them), throwing ideas around and helping to develop scripts that I would then direct. Ideally someone London based, as I'd prefer to meet and collaborate in person from time to time.

I already have a couple of new short film ideas I'd like help developing (low-to-no budget kind of projects), and a feature that's ready for fresh eyes. But I'd be excited to meet someone whom I can develop a good working relationship with on projects going forward.

Anyone out there?

Hey Matt,

I'm a Producer in Southampton, Hampshire. I have written in the past, but not my strongest area.

I do know a few that I can send your way if you like.

In the meantime, if you ever need a producer, casting director or AD let me know. [email protected], or my website - https://www.shannonhammondproducer.com.

Alexandre Oldcorn

Dear Matt,

My name is Alexandre, and I am a young, aspiring French-American screenwriter, who completed his further studies here in London and recently graduated from London Film School's Screenwriting MA.

I have a feature film and a few shorts to my portfolio, and am currently working on a TV series.

God knows writing can be a lonely task, and especially starting out, networking is key. In particular, I have a single-location short film I want to make this year, and would love to have the input of an experienced director (and who knows, maybe help direct it) !

In any case, I would love to meet for a coffee ! And in the meantime, I can send you my Writer's CV and send you anything you'd be interested to check out.
