‘Karin Altmann gives brilliant, direct, inspiring noteswith an eye both to the writer’s true intent and the market. As a script consultant and writer myself, I am so grateful to have her as the go-to I trust most for notes on my own work.’

‘It was Karin’s attention to the logic of our script, identifying and tightening the essential moments of the Jasper’s journey that helped push the story at crucial times. Her guidance in the development process was definitely key to having a story that worked. That’s how we got to the Oscars.’

‘Karin Altmann’s craft skills, cleverness and compassion make her the perfect person to work alongside. You may get tough love and rigour, but you’ll also get humanity, insight and joie-de-vivre. Developing her own and others’ projects is continuing to be immensely rewarding. Can’t wait to show you the results of our joint creativity on screens across the world!’

‘Karin brings a wealth of development experience to her script editing work and consulting in the cutting room. She has a razor sharp eye for sequences that develop character and story and she knows how to lace them together to create a coherent and emotionally engaging story. She is equally ruthless with sequences that stray from the primary story line. Her work with writer/director Nicole Ma on Putuparri and the Rainmakers was instrumental in the success of the finished film and most importantly Karin’s wicked sense of humour makes her a delight to work with.’

John Moore,


Putuparri and the Rainmakers

‘Your advice and support has helped me improve my understanding of creative writing in general… I’d like you to know that some of the explanations and tools you gave me have been an immense help. I really do appreciate the time you gave to me and the techniques for re-thinking storylines that you suggested and helped me understand…. I must say that Midnight Run will now forever remain a favourite film of mine. You were completely right about it!’
