Think of any major motion picture, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, for instance. The success or failure of any film begins with the screenwriter’s ability to communicate their exact vision to the producers, directors, actors, and others involved in its production. Screenwriters often turn to script consultants, for advice in this process. Dr. Linda Seger was the first person in the Hollywood industry to offer such a service. She began her script consulting business in 1981 based on her doctoral dissertation project of what makes a good script a great script. When Peter was just beginning his career, Linda helped him on his breakthrough film Brain Dead. He and other well-known filmmakers, from directors such as Ron Howard to writer Ray Bradbury, have attributed their success to the insights they gained from Linda Seger.
