Teaching and Script Consultancy

There’s nothing I love more than helping people shape their material and passing on some of my hard-won experience working with directors, producers and actors across the independent sector and Hollywood. I’m a Visiting Lecturer at the London Film School on the Screenwriting MA course. I also teach at the London Film Academy and participate in writers’ workshops, including at the Inward Eye Film Festival in the Lake District.

I give private mentoring work and am available through The Writers’ Practice. Please visit their website here. I’d love to help you develop your material. Or please contact me directly via the contacts page.

“Henry knows how films work thematically, commercially and most importantly emotionally. Henry’s your guy, he’s a great mentor. Thank you very much, Henry!”
Masashi Kawamata

“Henry did such a fabulous job at our Writers Workshop and Film Festival. He is not only extremely professional and highly skilled but also enormously fun and enthusiastic about film and life. We hope he will be able to work with us every year and would recommend him without hesitation.”

Charlotte Wontner


“Henry’s enthusiasm for teaching and for stories is infectious. Not only does he help you distill the core of the story in your script but he does it with a kind spirit.”
Christoffer Flemstrom

Filmmaking Diploma, London Film Academy

“As a relatively new filmmaker and writer the moment I send off a script for thoughts I feel excitement followed by instant gut wrenching fear. Henry is a person who always brings out the positive and consistently points out where he feels I can develop further. He’s kind and that can really make or break an artist. I’m still scared but feel safe when Henry has a script of mine.”
Lewis Reeves (ITV’s Unforgotten, I May Destroy You)

Actor, writer, director

“Henry is a great wall to bounce ideas off and generate productive breakthroughs. He inspires me to always continue working on a script and strive for the best.”
Louis Strong

Actor, writer, producer , Santamana Pictures

“I met Henry at the Inward Eye Film Festival. He joined the round table discussions on our projects, providing surgical insight and clarity. In our 1-to-1 session Henry gave further useful feedback as well as candid but encouraging career advice.”
