I want to help you carry your idea to a professional, completed script - whether that be a short film, feature or a TV series.
No matter your experience, I truly believe that there is a story inside every person, and I want to equip you with the tools to develop and write an industry standard script that you are proud to include in your portfolio.
For 'first-timers' or those who want to "shake off the cobwebs" with a fellow writer, I can offer the following skills:
*Learn how to conceive ideas and pitch at an industry standard
*Learn how to outline your screenplay effectively
*Learn how to professionally format your screenplays
*Learn how to write action, dialogue and transitions to a high standard
*Develop your voice as a writer
I'm a Screenwriter who also has practical experience working in the film and TV industry in the camera department.
As well as working with the BBC, STV and many other independent production companies I have a comprehensive portfolio of scripts from feature films to television series and even video games. I am a Warner Bros Creative Talent Scholar and one of my short plays was shown at the SoHo theatre in 2019.
I have a BA in filmmaking from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and I'm currently studying for my Masters in Screenwriting at the National Film and Television School (second year).
My friends and colleagues are filmmakers, writers and artists that are all currently working or developing projects in the industry - my experience is current and relevant and I have a good grasp on the UK industry.

Perfect! If you are looking for a scriptwriting tutor, look no further. Hannah is a pro who has cutting-edge knowledge of the industry and will enable you to bring your project to life. She has the exceptional ability to unlock ideas and creativity and is highly supportive and motivating.
Perfect! Hannah is a fantastic tutor but she is also a brilliant writer! I find her very inspiring. When we met I only had a nugget of an idea. In the space of two weeks, Hannah helped me shape and craft that nugget into a pilot fit for submission.
This was my first time writing a pilot. Coming from an acting background, I had a lot to learn! This could have been too daunting a task but with Hannah’s supportive, enthusiastic and above all, knowledgeable guidance, it was really fun. She helped me stay on track, work through the sticky parts and kept me feeling positive. I couldn’t possibly have gotten to this point without Hannah. Whatever your project is, I have no doubt that Hannah will guide you to make it the very best that it can be.
Perfect! Just started with Hannah so I hope they let me leave another review after a few lessons but if today was anything to go by, I've found absolutely the right mentor and teacher - picked up at least 4 major bits of skill already which I'm putting to good use in my homework over the next week. Really great session. Roll-on the next lesson I say!
Hannah is an exceptional writer and teacher able to convey her extensive knowledge of film and television script writing knowledge in a manner that is clear, thorough and inspiring. Having both worked with and learnt from Hannah myself, I cannot recommend her more highly. She is an excellent tutor.
I would whole-heartedly recommend Hannah for a tutoring position. I have worked closely with Hannah previously and I have really appreciated her enthusiastic, energetic, professional and sincere approach to writing and tutoring. Key to this is Hannah’s communication and active listening to others and her modern approach.
One thing I appreciate most about Hannah is when she challenges back to me; where she has questioned potential blind-spots of mine, as she is genuinely keen to encourage improvement and develop skills and does so with a passion!
