Four 1-hour video-chat consultancy sessions.
Karel Segers will guide you on all relevant aspects of your story summary or script: concept, character, POV, style, scene design, etc. In a Zoom/Skype consultation of up to one hour each, Karel will talk you through the best next steps and a development strategy to final draft.
Each session may contain one of the following:
Story analysis – advice on a synopsis, outline or pitch of up to 2,000 words (4 pages).
Script feedback – advice on one or more completed scenes, up to 10 pages total.
Logline – You may be asked for an updated version of your logline. If you have trouble writing this, we will work on it together.
The discussion will be held via telephone, Skype or Zoom (preferred). Each consultation will last up to one hour, during which you will get recommendations for the next draft or a development strategy to final draft.
– to improve your productivity through regular coaching
– to confirm direction in early development
– to prepare for a first draft or next draft
– to keep focused during the writing of a draft
Should you want to extend the session past 60 minutes during the call, you can use a next session credit. In case you have used up all 4 sessions from the pack, during the call you may book another pack of 4, and use its first session for the extension.

Once payment has cleared, you will receive an email with a Calendar invitation to the first consult session. The email contains a weblink that will automatically start your Zoom session on the day/time of the consult.
If you cannot make the proposed date and time, simple rejection the invitation and you will receive a new one for a different date & time.
