Copy & Editing
Writing and editing are a large part of what we do, and we absolutely love it, because no form of communication — visual, audio or print — works unless the content does.
Our writing has been featured in various publications, including Caribbean Beat, MACO Caribbean Living, Trinidad Weddings, The Ticket, and Business Trinidad and Tobago. Our founder, Janine Mendes-Franco, has been a contributor to the Sunday Guardian arts section and been featured as a guest columnist in the Trinidad Express. Her work has also been republished on Public Radio International and Al Jazeera.
We regularly edit and proofread corporate publications, newsletters and annual reports for clients that range from large conglomerates to energy sector companies. We also provide copy services for websites and other digital applications, taking key factors like Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) into consideration. We have significant expertise with new media, social media marketing and management.
We’re really passionate about our original writing projects that meld stories with visuals — there’s a children’s storybook that’s due to go into production soon and we recently finished scripting the first season of an animated children’s series.
We were thrilled to be part of The British Council Script Development Workshop, facilitated by the accomplished international script development consultant, Ludo Smolski, who also happens to teach the National Film and Television School’s Postgraduate Diploma in Script Development. The sessions will focus on the “concept and practice of good script development by focusing on the role of the story editor and how they work with screenwriters and producers”.
Other recent exciting news is that one of our projects, “Silk Road”, was chosen for the Caribbean Film Mart at the 2018 trinidad + tobago film festival. The project already got great feedback earlier this year in a pitch workshop led by former head of BBC drama Peter Ansorge, who now runs the short courses department at the UK’s National Film and Television School.
