We were fortunate enough to hire Cast Iron Studios as script consultants for our latest screenplay. Their extensive notes were intelligent, insightful and respectful. Will also offered us quite a few hours of person-to-person feedback, during which we found him to be personable and filled with charm and good humor. His knowledge of screenplay story structure and the inner workings of the Hollywood business culture proved invaluable. If you're a screenwriter looking to develop a script, Cast Iron Studios is your "go to" company.
