Rumour has it. . .
"Nick is that uncommon beast: a script analyst who's also a highly accomplished and gifted screenwriter in his own right. This combination is crucial, as it enables Nick to identify that rare script which does possess that special something, has a real writer behind it, and which, with his guidance, can be shaped into a viable commercial entity worthy of being put into production."
- Nick Taussig - Salon Pictures

"It was great working with Nick on our project! He applied himself entirely to achieve a deep understanding our concept. He undertook extensive independent research to make our show legally realistic and dramatically powerful. While working with him, we formed a great bond with him. His determination was commendable. He reassured us and worked closely with us to refine and fulfil the potential of our concept. He clearly loves his job. We’ll be working again with Nick asap, and wish him luck for the future."

- Keith Evans - Baker Street Media
"Nick's script coverage is both insightful and creative. He is incisive but not unduly harsh or abrasive as many other coverage writers can be. I would not hesitate to ask his opinion on any of my future projects."
- Shani Grewal - Balhar Films

- Ian Whitney - screenwriter (Gold - International Independent Film Awards; Semi-Finalist - Vail Screenplay Contest; 2nd Place - Colorado International Film Festival)
"Nick has assisted me in developing two feature thrillers. His feedback was both insightful and invaluable. He clearly takes the time to properly read the script and gets to understand the writer's voice. The reports provide carefully considered criticism and advice whilst boosting confidence in the areas that work well."

"Superb script notes. Much needed grounding. Couldn't have improved my spec with Nick's honest, yet constructive notes. Highly recommended. You will not regret it."
- Stephen Manwaring (screenwriter: Dead by Monday)
"I hired Nick recently to cover a screenplay I had written. I made the right choice. As a script consultant, Nick is a seasoned pro. Though English, he proved sensitive to American dialect and colloquialisms. Aside from his critique of the technical aspects of my screenwriting, I found him to be most generous in offering ways by which to improve my script. Yes, Nick was quick to flag up my shortcomings as a screenwriter; but if, like me, you appreciate people who get to the point quickly, you’ll be glad of Nick’s honesty and directness. Thankfully Nick gives credit where credit is due, too.
What I found most useful (and have rarely received from other so-called script coverage writers) is that Nick immediately dives deep into the work at the report/coverage level, and zeros in on problem aspects and areas of the work both in general and specific terms. Then, and this is the best part of Nick, he offers ways to resolve the problems. He clearly knows how to ‘see’ a screenplay, and knows make a scene, an act or an entire script work better. He passes this insight along generously. I found this an atypical yet welcome approach to coverage, and plan on using Nick in the future."
- Ralph Potente (screenwriter)
"Nick is one of the UK's most imaginative, skilled and amazingly sensitive screenwriting talents. I can't thank him enough for taking my book "How to Trap a Starfish" to the next level through the process of adaptation. Sincere thanks for your imagination, intelligent use of plot line, and most crucially your ability to tease out my work's core dramatic moments for screen.”
- Marie-Ann McLoughlin Dwyer: Writer/Producer, Breezy Point Films.
"Nick developed our concept and created a story that expounded it in an amazingly sensitive way. He exceeded our expectations. It was an honour to work with him. We would like to thank Nick very much for all the effort and dedication he put into writing our feature film screenplay. We will continue working with him whenever possible."
