Terry Newman: author, scriptwriter and script doctor
WHAT I DO
Terry Newman, or Terence as hardly anybody calls him, works with clients from all around the globe, writing, improving and enlivening scripts and manuscripts. Entertainment, including film, TV, radio, New Media and commercial, including adverts, animation, training films and audio guides. He is particularly in demand to help with structure and dialogue.
Terry is also a former university lecturer in scriptwriting and has also tutored industry professionals, including actors, about the joys of scriptwriting. He has developed his own approach to feature film writing that is clear and cuts down on costly and time-consuming redrafts.
