This Page relates to the help I offer my other clients who have a separate Agent handling their
performances but use me to sort out things their Agent doesn't do. Have a look at some of the options below:
Paperwork & Admin
want help sorting a backlog of paperwork after filming or being in a long-running show - or just treating yourself to time off? Do brown envelopes & forms bring you out in a rash? I can come to you, or do from my own office.
For some clients I liaise directly with accountants, helping ensure they are collating all the paperwork and receipts for expenses that they need.
It's also useful to do a financial spring clean occasionally - a spotlight on those savings accounts that are now only gaining 0.1% interest - or why you're paying insurance on a phone you traded in three years ago... (My time has always ended up being covered by something we've resolved!)
it can be overwhelming to have fan mail dropping through the door piecemeal and then piling up for whenever it can be tackled. My clients arrange for their Agency to forward all fan mail to me > I recce it quickly and alert them to anything they need to know about immediately; otherwise I have it ready for a sit down with them whenever that good moment occurs. They also like that it gets taken it away, packaged up and posted!
Some just like a printed comp slip in, some like it to look like a more personal message back, some like to see it all, some are happy for me to just send signed ones .. you choose.
I have clients who appreciate help organising their Charity appearances or Concert Readings: using me as liaison between them and the Event on issues like call times, readings, transport, costuming etc.
Or for whom I book Film & Comic Convention appearances (although that is on commission not fee)
Contracts, Estates & Residuals
* I am experienced in contracts across all genres for those needing help on a complex one but without an agent.
* I've helped several clients with Estate issues following a bereavement, and very sadly, am currently acting as Executor for one who has recently passed.
* I run the SWEENEY estate, and police the INSPECTOR MORSE estate for Sheila Hancock on behalf of John Thaw
* sometimes clients just need help on an emergency or one-off situation such as moving house, crashing their car, or party plans - 'sagas' being a speciality!
* it may be something that benefits from my particular skill-set and experience, or something they just don't have the time or the inclination to manage themselves.
increasingly, whether we like it or not, social media feeds are becoming an increasingly important and useful tool for promoting projects - and fans do want to know where they can see your work! It can also help to glean support for any charities for whom you are an advocate. But it's important to use it well .. my clients use me to run Official News Feeds to reach fans; clearly presented as being that and not a personal feed, meaning their work can be promoted but without the client needing to do the whole 'hey, look at me' self-promotion themselves.
It's great if the client is also happy to supply the occasional message or photo but can also be effective with no obvious personal input from them!
I have worked on several websites over the years; and am still managing this website, the Strangeness in Space website, and Sheila Hancock's website.
Ad-hoc clients also ask me to update content for them when they don't have time themselves - or for help scribing content compelling,
Payment … clients only pay when they use me
I don't charge a retainer. I have a daily rate but I charge pro-rata - often an email or a phone call is all they need, and I charge only for the time it takes to do that; and keep it logged on a running timesheet. I am also happy, by arrangement, to work with you out of usual office hours if you are working.
Mobile: 07973 740885
Landline: 020 8288 6647
Based by Twickenham Studios. I happy to meet at my office or your home, although occasionally the latter may need to incur travel time (tbd).
I can work from my office at home, or from your home. Often a mixture of both works well for both me and the client!
