Consulting and Coaching
Over the last three decades, Emmanuel Oberg has worked as an international creative consultant, in parallel with his writing, on both film and TV projects.
Our coaching and consulting services are delivered online. Travel permitting, they can also be delivered in person. Please see the FAQs below for more details.
Currently, Emmanuel offers mostly one-off consulting on projects. Exceptionally, he can take a project on for coaching (i.e. following a rewrite with the writer and the producer). Emmanuel also offers a slate assessment service for studios, groups and producers. Please get in touch for more information.
Important note: For various reasons, unless you are a participant of our self-led online courses or live workshops, we can only provide consulting and coaching services to studios / producers or filmmakers represented by an agent / manager. Thank you for your understanding!
