"To say that I am satisfied with Mark Wisdom's service would be an understatement. His work on my short film, 'Voice of Belief' not only ensured that the storyline was effective but also provided insight into the characters that made up the world. Mark would highlight key character development points, offering advice and feedback to ensure that we had believable and compelling characters. Without his input, we would have been missing the level of depth that Mark added. I would highly recommend his service!"
Alastair Railton, Director & Writer of the award-winning short film 'Voice of Belief'
Mark Wisdom came highly recommended who, with his background as an actor, lends itself to understanding how well manuscripts should read.
My manuscript was duly forwarded, confident it was perfect, having been checked (by myself and my partner) and treble checked for spelling, grammar, punctuation and story flow. However, it wasn't until I received Mark's observations that I realised just how much more there was to 'editing' &'proof reading'. He still found grammar mistakes, well hidden and easily missed by a novice like me (and I'm the writer). He also found I'd used specific words too often and offered alternatives. His methods are so professional, margin quotes to make his thoughts clear, without ruining the actual text. Best of all were his comments r.e. the plots and the areas where, in his own words, 'nothing seems to be happening for several pages, so the reader could get bored' followed by a few suggestions. He was right; those areas definitely required more impact.
My manuscript reads so much better now and the story offers more grit and excitement throughout instead of just in certain areas. Mark doesn't just offer honest professional opinions on areas he believes require change, he also compliments where the manuscript hits the spot. What a boost those comments provide.
Need a book edit or proof reading? Mark Wisdom is your man. Having had firsthand experience of his work, I would most certainly and very highly, recommended him.
