“I’ve worked with Sheryl over many years. First when she was a BBC script editor , later when she was a producer and executive producer. She is multiskilled and multitalented. Great at all aspects of the job. She combines good taste with excellent script judgement. She has a profound understanding of all aspects of the film industry. Indefatigable , principled , knowledgeable and an all-round lovely human being .”
Ruth Caleb – TV and FilmProducer
“I have been working with Sheryl Crown for over a year now on the film All in The Same Boatto be produced by New Sparta Productions.
From my first meeting I knew, as someone coming from a theatre background into the world of film that I was in rigorous, passionate and deeply intelligent hands.
My desire to tell stories that feel relevant and search to find common humanity was supported by Sheryl’s profound understanding of narrative, gesture, image and rhythm of the screenwriting process. Along with the writers Tom Williams and Warren FitzGerald, Sheryl has guided and supported us to create a story that has both scale and intimacy, wit and rawness and feels urgent and ready to share with a cinema audience.
To have Sheryl as a collaborator and provocative sounding board has been essential to our process and I can only envy anyone who gets to work with her on other projects."
Jonathan Butterell –Film and Theatre Director
“Sheryl is like a personal trainer for my first drafts – she crunches my characters, stretches out my structure and deadlifts my dialogue – but with that essential positivity which makes me feel all this pain is going to be worth it in the end.”
Tom Williams – Screenwriter
"I met Sheryl whilst we were both working in the BBC’s Drama Department and we have continued to be friends and colleagues over the years.
As Independent producers we went on to launch and run a 12 months long Industry diversity development training scheme for aspiring and talented film makers across fiction and factual genres. Sheryl also became an Executive Producer on the Documentary Feature,‘From the Ashes ‘ – that Greenacre also Exec produced, her suggestions were always constructive and she was very supportive throughout the process.
Her range of experience in film production and her depth and knowledge of script editing and development in television is invaluable and always good to have in a room. I’ve loved working with Sheryl and look forward to working with her again very soon."
