"Will understands character and story and knows how to get just the right balance between the two. He wants to make the best drama possible and has the experience and patience to help you on that journey".

Matthew Thomas – New Tricks; Valentine’s Kiss

 

"Working with Will on a complex historical series was a thoroughly positive experience. His deft analytical skills with regard to plot and pacing meant that the story was always to the fore, and became progressively more defined as we worked. It doesn't hurt that he's also a very friendly and easygoing person who engages well with the creative side of the process. For a writer, it's always good to know that script editor both understands the material and has constructive input to offer... basically, that they've got your back. Will is excellent in this respect".

Guy Burt – The Borgias; The Bletchley Circle       

 

"Every screenwriter, however experienced or eminent, benefits from the impartial eye of a skilled editor or consultant – and Will Evans has two such eyes".

John Goldsmith – Victoria & Albert; The Gospel of John

 

"Will really helped take my script to the next level. He gave excellent notes on structure, character and dialogue. Perhaps most important was the follow-up Skype call. To discuss my script ‘face to face’ with an expert was invaluable. Five star service. I can't recommend him enough".     

Dom Rose Price – Those Who Surround Us

 

"I met Will working on a rewrite of an international feature film I directed. The way he rewrote the dialogue and deepened the characters was stunning. The manner in which he solved story problems without hurting the basic narrative was equally impressive. If I get the chance to work with him again in the future on an original screenplay, I certainly will".

Ben Verbong – The Girl with the Red Hair; The von Trapp Family 

 

"Working with Will, the first thing that struck me was his instinctive feel for narrative. He also has a forensic eye for detail and a heroic work ethic. His careful readings and encompassing editorial perspective have been invaluable to me on every project I've worked on with him. His input has made me a much better writer". 

William Kherbeck – Ecology of Secrets

Upon leaving Eton College in 1998, Will Evans attended Chelsea College of Art and Design. His first play, Night Owls, was produced the following year by the Royal Court Theatre, London.

Invited to join the Royal Court Young Writers Programme he followed up on the success of Night Owls by writing A Dream Then, produced by The West Yorkshire Playhouse in association with the BBC’s Northern Exposure initiative.

After brief stints working as bookmaker, whilst researching a radio play for the BBC, and as a sportswriter for Agence France-Presse, Will joined Gate Television and Film Productions in 2005. Over the last ten years he has been a key creative force in the production of over 30 hours of high quality film and television drama as a script editor and latterly as a producer.

Will currently divides his time between London and Berlin. He is represented by Julie Press at Kitson Press Associates.
