5 minutes with development exec Chris Monk

March 20, 2024 @ 10:43 pm Posted in Freelancer Profiles, News Comments

I’ve worked in unscripted development for 15 years, writes Development Exec Chris Monk.

Chris Monk:

During that time, I’ve held senior positions at some of the UK’s most highly regarded production companies including Optomen, Hat Trick, Boundless and Expectation. My credits encompass premium documentaries (One Shot: The Football Factory, House of Maxwell), returning formats (Rich House Poor House, Grand Designs: The Streets), and specialist factual programming (Pride and Prejudice: Having a Ball, Uncle Vanya).

In recent years, I’ve established myself as a freelance development consultant, available to provide creative advice to start-ups as well as established companies, while continuing to originate and develop my own ideas with support from collaborative indies.

I’m looking for a part-time position in which I provide general consultancy services, or work on specific projects. I am equally comfortable working as a one-man band -  conducting my own research, writing and designing my own treatments using Keynote and Canva, edit-producing sizzles – as I am managing teams of researchers, APs and producers.

At present, I have capacity for two days per week, but I would also be open to one day per week, or perhaps more ad-hoc, occasional work. So, if you’re looking for someone to refresh your existing slate, provide strategic advice, write a top-notch proposal, or collaborate on ideas for a specific brief, then please get in touch. - the jobs and social networking site for short term, part time, job share and regular hours jobs in media.
