Hi there, I’m Alizée – a script editor/consultant, writer, and translator with 6+ years of experience in script development. Working internationally in French and English, I provide writing, translation, and development support for screenwriters of all levels.
Based in London, I work across the film, TV, animation, and web content sectors on a freelance basis. Recently, I’ve been involved in a variety of projects with independent production companies and studios such as Entertainment One, Amazon Studio, Ubisoft, and Wildbrain Spark. Since 2017, I’ve been a committee board member of Euroscript, a training and mentoring organisation for screenwriters, through which I teach a workshop on writing web series. I’m also a member of WFTV and The Society of Authors. In 2019, I was a jury member at the BAFTA Children’s Awards.

Q: What is the first film you ever remember seeing?
A: Pocahontas, at the cinema. I remember a few images from the film but above all I was mesmerised by how gigantic the cinema screen was!
Q: What's the fictional journey that you'd most like to take?
A: Travelling through Middle Earth as the only girl in the Fellowship in Lord of the Rings of course!
Q: What's the best opening in your opinion?
A: Tough, as there's more than one. Though The Matrix by the Wachowskis and Amelie Poulain by Jean Pierre Jeunet are probably on the list. At the cinema, I'd say that it's definitely the opening scene of the Two Towers as we dive down into the mountains (can you sense that I'm a Lord of the Rings fan yet?). I wasn't expecting it, and I've never felt such a strong impression of vertigo at the cinema ever since. It was as if I was literally plunging into the story's world.
Q: Where do you like to write?
A: In cafes during the day, at home during the night, and on any form of transportation all 24 hours round.
