My film Reshma has been presented in the official selection of the Academy Awards qualifying Indy Shorts Film Festival, and my feature documentary Leher won Best Documentary at festivals as CloseUp Edinburgh and EQAD.

Story Consulting

“I am available as a story consultant for professional and non professional writers who need feedbacks for their project.
The consultation is available in English and in Italian.”


Screenplays, Theatre Plays, Narrative, Personal or brand storytelling.



I willl provide a story analysis, evaluation of the structure, plot, character development, pacing, and themes. Feedback and suggestions to strengthen the story's narrative and emotional impact, to make it more engaging and compelling. Insight on marketability and the next steps (contests, productions, agencies).



After you'll send me an email with a brief description of your project, your biggest issues, and your goals, we'll schedule a 10 mins free call to see if I'm the right match for your project. If we both agree we'll move forward.

"Working with Livia is a unique opportunity to take your story to the next level. She is so passionate, qualified and sensitive and she can understand the core of your script and help you to explore it in the best way possible. Livia is capable to push you to get back writing when you’re blocked and proposes you new and amazing possibilities for your stories and your characters. She helped me writing a feature film and a series in which I felt stuck and after her consultation they are ready to be sold."
