SCRIPT INTEGRITY

DAVID’S UNDERSTANDING OF SCREENPLAYS, TOGETHER WITH HIS OWN WRITING AND KNOWLEDGE OF THE “END USER” ELEMENT OF THE INDUSTRY, ALLOWS HIM TO OFFER CREATIVE SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS SUCH AS OVERLENGTH SCRIPTS OR UNBALANCED STORYLINES.

LEADERSHIP

DAVID HAS DEVELOPED THE NECESSARY LEADERSHIP SKILLS SO URGENTLY REQUIRED IN AN INDUSTRY WHERE DOUBT OCCURS REGULARLY, GIVEN THE PRECARIOUS NATURE OF FILM PRODUCTION AND THE FREELANCE NATURE OF THE SERVICE  REQUIRED TO BE SUPPLIED, OFTEN MANY THOUSANDS OF MILES FROM HOME.
