Since I work with so many screenwriters and producers, I understand how to talk to you.  Shaping a film story is, I be believe, the hardest part of making a movie.  In a very real way, the screenwriter and producer BUILD the house – everybody else just comes in to decorate it.

Look at the tabs to the left.  Each one of them is a slightly different way to help you. Choose the one that is right for you.

I understand that to do all that hard work, you must be inspired.  Great ideas need to be nurtured while they grow.  There’s nothing worse than having a great, original concept, but losing heart, and abandoning ship.  Successful story makers, from what I’ve observed, are the ones who don’t quit.  But how do you stay inspired?  That’s where I come in.

I help story makers at all stages of writing:

  • Concept refinement
  • Character development
  • Story structure
  • Scene work
  • Rewriting
  • Dialogue
  • Style, voice and tone

I will meet with you on my virtual office space, where we collaborate and I help you advance your story.  With lots of encouragement and a clear understanding of the process, I give you the attention and direction you need to write and finish your script.

Working with me is like hiring a personal trainer at the gym.  You might work out when you go by yourself, but a trainer can push you to go where you’ve never been before — and you’ll appreciate the results.


With this package, you’ll be getting exactly what I give our studio clients. It’s the kind of consultation that has allowed me to sell two television pilots in 2017, exactly the kind of input and collaboration that I’ve used to take a dozen clients and co-writers to success.

– One live session with Peter. This session  (one to one and a half hours) is recorded for you, and takes place on Webex, my virtual conference room. All you need is a decent Internet connection and a headset. (It’s simple and it works easily.)

– A full set of development notes will be given to you at this session.

At my meeting with you, I will give you a full set of development notes. I will show you tools to help you. I will guide you in how to develop your story idea. I may show you movie clips in the genres in which you are working. I will also give you access to certain streaming lectures that we think will help you write your
particular story.My virtual conference room is just like being in the same room with me — but it’s also recorded, so you can watch and listen again and again.

We will discuss the commercial prospects of your story and how to enhance them.

Really, all facets of your story will be talked about — in as much detail as you wish.

This is a development meeting precisely as I give our studio clients. It’s designed to propel you forward in telling your own, vivid, original story. I love my work, and really enjoy working with my clients. I think you’ll enjoy it too — and emerge re-energized and ready to leap forward.

I will personally read all stories and scripts — I don’t use readers.

My notes to you will help you recreate your story.

I charge a fraction of what I charge our studio clients – but you receive the same service (which includes my time to read your work and to make my notes — outside the live session with you, of course.
