SCRIPT EDITOR

Having worked the last 15 years in the TV and film industry in both development and production, Writer/ Producer Ruth Carter is now offering a tailored service to writers, producers and directors where she will assist in script stage from development right through to production. A creative producer who has helped grow many ideas from very early stages most notably Damo & Ivor which she produced two series and more recently the movie, Ruth is available to deliver notes and work with writers, producers and directors to get their scripts right.

Ruth has recently worked as a script editor on RTE mockumentary The School as well as Hardy Bucks Series 4 and Ends Meet the first animation series for adults that RTE has commissioned. 

Ruth has worked for a number of years as a Development Executive on films for Parallel Films such as Byzantium directed by Neil Jordan, Albert Nobbs directed by Rodrigo Garcia, Perrier’s Bounty directed by Ian Fitzgibbon and Triage directed by Danis Tanovic. Ruth also worked in the script department on two series of The Clinic.

Damo & Ivor originally began life as a series of sketches and You Tube music videos and Ruth worked alongside the creative team behind the idea Andy Quirke and Jules Coll to develop it into a hugely successful TV series. Ruth has the proven ability to assist in growing a series from a shorter and different format onto television.

With experience across both TV and film Ruth has the ability to help writers, directors and other producers to focus their script in the right direction.

Ruth has also organised development funding from the Irish Film Board, BBC, MEDIA and RTE.
