"Currently enjoying working with Sheryl on a feature film script in development at Bedlam, that needs a fair bit of excavation and deconstruction to see how to improve and resolve the story, plot and character issues. No small task. The work is creatively painstaking, but step by step Sheryl is endeavouring to clear a path that enables the writer to understand not only what's missing but why the story isn't quite landing, so they can hopefully generate some carefully guided but not prescriptive solutions. Her analytical abilities, specific script skills and narrative development experience has helped us make real progress, cheerfully and with hope."
"Sheryl understood the kind of authenticity I wanted to bring to the development of my screenplay for Solomon & Gaenor and let me have my head. She gave me good and appropriate script notes – which means not too many but the right ones. She had the contacts in Wales we particularly needed to bring in finance and when it came to production, she had great suggestions for crewing – including music, DOP and casting director. The film was nominated for an Oscar so together we didn’t do too bad."
Paul Morrison, Writer-Director
"Sheryl is the best kind of development executive – she has a keen story sense, great ideas (but doesn't believe she has a monopoly on them!), and an indefatigable work ethic. During the development process, she was a creative partner, confidante, and a champion for the project and the writer."
Dave Collard – LA-based Screenwriter
"Sheryl's insight into scripts is unrivalled and her 'three levels' of conflict idea is beyond useful. Her unquenchable passion for the power of screen stories is matched by her unquestionable professionalism and decency. One couldn't hope for a more supportive and generous colleague, whether for a single day's project-illuminating discussion or over the years it can take to travel from idea to screen."
