company profile

Script Development and Training
Individual consultancy, tutoring, lecturing and workshops in script development and story editing.

Solace23 is both an idea and a practice.

It offers support to people working with visual narratives; advising at various stages of the development of an idea through to the final film or artwork.

This can take many different forms, most commonly story or script consultancy, but also advising during the editing process.

We also seek to disseminate ideas relating to the practice itself and reflections about the nature of this practice, through workshops, lectures and an on-going book project: A Farewell to Certainties.
