~ Kate is a great creative and writer whom I have recently had the pleasure of working with on a project for Carte Blanche. So much so that I am already in discussions with her on another project. I would not hesitate to recommend her. ~

~ Kate has written several great preschool scripts for Driver Dan's Story Train and the process each time was fun, collaborative, creative and professional. We're now working with Kate on some of her own projects and this too is a very productive and enjoyable process, rooted firmly in her impressive knowledge of film and tv content and it's audiences. ~

~ Kate is a very imaginative woman with a great sense of humour.

Her designs are terrific, and for us she wrote what the commissioner of CITV said at the time was "the best script that has ever crossed my desk."

~ Had the pleasure of working with Kate on the pilot script of a series she created for Calon. She is a gifted artist, an excellent script writer and she generates great ideas like a Catherine wheel generates sparks (and at about the same speed)! ~

~ Kate wrote a lovely, joyous pilot script for us during the development period of our new series.  It’s filled with comedy moments and we were so excited to see the characters begin to come into the world. Her script was full of beautiful images and it did my heart good to read it! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kate as a scriptwriter – she doesn’t just commit, she invests, her excitement is infectious and she has a wonderfully collaborative process. ~

~ We hired Kate to consult on one of our animated series.

We loved her ideas for character and story development and she offered lots of inspiration and fresh directions in which we could take the concept and brought great perspective from the wider animation business.

I hope we'll be able to work together again soon. ~

CONRADO GALVES

Executive Creative Director at FGreat Motion Graphics Studio
 
~ I commissioned Kate to write the series bible for a TV concept I had been developingin house. She work-shopped ideas with us and generated more on her own. She never lost sight of my vision and the heart and humour of the characters and stories we wished to tell. I then hired her to write a pilot script, which was funny, creative and expertly introduced our vast cast of characters.


I would be happy to recommend Kate to other producers and directors and I look forward to collaborating with her again soon. ~

MILES MANN

Head of Product Development at Mookie Toys
 
~ We have worked closely with Kate during the character & story development of a new interactive children’s toy. During thisprocess Kate has worked closely with our internal creative team with fantastic results. Kate wrote very creative characters profiles, interactive stories & scripts that were engaging for children (for our target age group). To achieve this it was vital for Kate to understand the technical constraints of the product & the link between the physical toy & digital app based world. Finally Kate has been a pleasure to work with & can recommend without hesitation. ~
