Who We Are
One day a writer and actor who had been in the business for a long time thought about setting up a production company. They considered that if they climbed a tall building and threw stones that they would definitely hit someone who owned a production company, possibly several. So, they concluded that another production company is not what the business needs. The actor reflected upon how many times they had read a good script which was a draft away or three drafts away from being a great script? The writer reflected that a good script editor or dramaturg is a rare and beautiful thing to be treasured like gold. Master Raconteur was born.
Our philosophy is quite simple. We want to offer a script consultancy service at a reasonable price because we think that writers are important. We want to offer the service from industry professionals, not anonymous readers who haven't managed to break through themselves or academics who have read lots of books on screenwriting and writing for the stage. Yes, we know that being active in the industry doesn't guarantee that you'll be a good script consultant but it's a start.
