Christabelle brings a particular perspective to her work as a story editor and script consultant from her background as a classically trained actor, a TV commissioning editor and a writer.
Throughout her many years working for broadcasters under the pressure of imminent production and sitting beside writers as they struggled to hone their script, Christabelle’s passion is in finding the most powerful way to tell a story. She is always interested in the writer’s vision, and helps the writer to tell that story with as much depth and precision as possible.
Christabelle now works freelance with established writers and independent production companies, offering a spectrum of script consultancy services from one-off reads to complete script development packages.
She also teaches screenwriting, and gives feedback to new writers through mentoring programmes like Write2Screen’s HotHouse mentoring programmes (http://www.write2screen.org.uk/) supported by Creative England, at the National Centre for Writing, Norwich.
She recently taught Screenwriting as part of the UEA / FutureLearn MOOC.
