"The Dean Martin of UK Scriptwriting" - A Flattering but Confused Reviewer

Evening all! This is the website of screenwriter, dialogue "flirting" consultant, playwright, poet, script reader, singer, lecturer, producer, composer and massive show off, Sandy Nicholson.

I’m the head writer at Box Room Films, I’ve been working as a television writer and dialogue consultant for five years, and I was nominated for the 2013 Peter Ustinov Prize by the International Emmy Awards Foundation.

I also run the London based script feedback group Kites and Violence for any writers looking to get honest, thorough feedback on their work. It's a great place to get your work read by actors, get feedback and meet other writers and directors.

If you're interested in any of the services I offer, any of my projects, Box Room Films or Kites and Violence, all that info is around this site, or you can get in touch via email or on twitter if you want to say hi.

Enjoy yourselves,


Dialogue Consultant

Since 2011 I have been working freelance as a dialogue consultant for companies and individuals alike, and have been slowly gathering a reputation in the industry as a reliable asset when it comes to dialogue rewrites, particularly when the script calls for characters to “flirt” with one another. This specialised area makes up the vast majority of my professional work. Unfortunately “flirting consultant” conjures up some misleading imagery.

"Sharp and funny" - Adam Gyngell, ITV

"…An astonishing job making us all invest in two people as individuals and as a couple."
- Sascha Hecks, Lex Filmed Entertainment

"Dialogue that's engaging, warm and very funny." - Ellen Gallaghar, Blake Freidmann

"A rare skill with dialogue" - Duncan Moore, Director

"Dialogue that's meticulously crafted and highly creative as well as sharp and sexy." - Sunny Singh, Playwright

"A real pleasure to read" - Nina Steiger, Soho Theatre

"Left field and funny, but without shirking real emotion." Anne Karpf, The Guardian

"I cannot overvalue the exceptional work that has been done here." - Eshan Bhatti, JN Motion
