Story Design Consultation: by the Hour: $125.
Are you in search of fleshing out a high-concept idea? Have a concept for a novel, graphic novel, TV show, film, or podcast? I construct 'from the ground up' story frameworks that include: historical context, world-building, story engine and arc, tone, visual themes, premise and message, complex protagonist profile/arc, and more.
After the elements have been decided, I can then create a Show Bible or Treatment to sell the concept including: Logline, synopsis, show summary, story engine, tone, themes, main character conflicts/misbelief, secondary characters, one season summary & episode summaries (for TV series/ mini series).
