screenplay analysis and coaching testimonials

What people are saying



Arne Olsen is an outstanding screenwriting talent.  His work is fresh, exciting, memorable, funny and commercial as hell – which is why I like working with him so much.

Steve Hoban

Copperheart Entertainment

I’ve worked with Arne over a ten-year period. He’s always been the person to go to for a creative take on a story idea, treatment or screenplay. In short, Arne is great writer, editor and creative force.

Rick Mischel


Arne is a first-class senior story editor/consultant with a deep knowledge of writing screenplays for movies and television. I have seen him in action and was impressed with his breadth of talent and effortless flow of ideas.

Arne Olsen may be one of Canada’s greatest unsung screenplay heroes. The direct path to story solutions is very apparent to Arne. This fountain of ideas is high on my list of go-to writers.

Raymond Massey


Arne has a highly perspicacious insight into script analysis and form, gleaned through years of working within the US studio system and independent film-making. As a screenwriter and editor he has developed an innate ability to extrapolate deep story structure issues, whilst enhancing your creative vision to an advanced story telling level.  I cannot recommend Arne highly enough.

Christian Piers Betley

Axel Pictures Inc.

Arne is my absolute “go-to” guy whenever I need help with any creative materials, from conceptualizing to written materials to sizzle reels and beyond. His instincts across the board are spot on, which is why I have sought him out at every studio I have worked at and he always delivers the results.

Paul Gertz

Network Entertainment

Arne story edited a feature script I wrote. He was a wonderful mix of articulate, tough, and generous.  He was absolutely the guide I needed; my first draft was so much stronger than it would have been without him. I’ve since recommended Arne to other writer friends, and I hope to get the chance to work with him again.

Jennica Harper

Writer, Producer

Arne gives you the goods with insight and candor.  Just what I needed.

Michael Robison

TV Director

Arne is a hugely positive force.  Having him go over my script was like having Indiana Jones guide me through the temple.  Line by line, page by page he noted the pitfalls and sought the treasure that was there.  He’s respectful, articulate and wise.  I highly recommend his insights.

Arne is a veteran story-teller who has a depth of experience finding and fixing the stories that people are interested in seeing.

Blake Corbet

Producer, Writer

We worked with Arne on a script that had been through multiple rewrites. We were really stuck on a few key points. Arne provided outstanding advice which allowed us to push through the problems and arrive at our final draft.

Geoff Redkap

Director, PRAXIS winner 2011

Arne’s knack for storytelling, his way of explaining the “how’s” and “why’s” of that process and his ability to show writers how to apply that knowledge to their work, make him an invaluable resource.  Use him.
