In 1981, Dr. Linda Seger created and defined the career of Script Consultant. She based her business on a method for analyzing scripts that she had developed for her doctoral dissertation project. Since then, she has consulted on over 2,000 scripts including over 50 produced feature films and over 35 produced television projects. Linda was the consultant for Peter Jackson’s breakthrough film, Brain Dead and for Roland Emmerich’s breakthrough film, Universal Soldier. She was the script consultant on Pasttime and Picture Bride–both winners of the Audience Favorite Award at the Sundance Film Festival–as well as for the films The Long Walk Home, The Neverending Story II, Luther, Romero, and television movies and mini-series including The Bridge, the Danish-Swedish mini-series (now playing in the US). Other clients include Ray Bradbury who said, “Linda’s technique is a light to see by,” William Kelley, Linda Lavin, and production companies, film studios, producers, directors, and writers from over 33 countries.
Linda Seger is the most prolific author in the area of screenwriting. Her ten books remain staples for writers and many universities use them as textbooks in screenwriting classes. Linda is best known for the title Making a Good Script Great. Linda has earned 3 MA degrees and a Th.D. including one in drama and one in Religion and the Arts. She lives in Cascade, CO with her husband Peter.
