Drafting in a troubleshooter

Bertie called. He has finished renovating his farmhouse in the Dordogne and asked if I needed a hit format troubleshooter on my new team. I know he would definitely come in handy as a consultant at some point in the future. Bertie has marketed himself very successfully as a hatchet man drafted in to butcher poor films into better shape, and taking all the credit in the process.

Bertie leaves other people’s egos in his wake like clubbed seals and has the superiority complex of a man who spends 10 months of the year wearing shorts and 2 months in an edit suite winning Baftas. Just the kind of battle-hardened survivalist I need fighting on my side.
