I’ve been a freelance writer for 15+ years. The wealth of my experience came my way after receiving my BA in film studies and anthropology.
At the moment (2022), I mostly work with long-term, existing clients on copy and content for their websites, social media, and digital ads. For one, I also serve as Marketing Manager in addition to Senior Copywriter.
I’ve written, directed and produced two short films, optioned one original feature script and am on my third paid rewrite gig. In 2019, I was also honoured to be asked to judge a youth film festival in Bavaria, Germany.
Though I believe that ANYONE – and I do mean anyone – who enjoys consuming media is “qualified” to give feedback. We’re all just viewers, at the end of the day. Films and television is such a subjective art form and whoever claims that one needs a certain education is an elitist who is just out for your money. (Please, RUN FROM THOSE POEPLE.)
Yes. No hidden costs, no “I gave you great advice, so now pay me”. You receive feedback when I can manage to make the time and I don’t expect payment.
