"Kindred (written by Phil Parker) is a fantastic, adventurous screenplay with loads of fun as it takes readers across The Outback, introduces them to uncommonly featured peoples, and manages to tell a story of grand proportions. The action and conflict were absolutely awesome... The stakes were high, the energy was great, and the fights were thrilling to read." - SCREENCRAFT READER REVIEW

‘Kindred’ - an Aboriginal sci-fi adventure

Building your story from the ground up

Wondering how to write a screenplay? Simple – hire a professional screenwriter.

You may have the rights to a book, an article or someone’s life story that you want to turn into a screenplay. Or maybe you just have an idea that you think would make a great movie. Whatever your starting place is, the key to ending up with a great script, is planning.

Before a screenwriter commits to typing page one of your script, they need to drill down and discover the most important thing of all:

  • what is the beating heart of your story. In other words, what will make an audience care about the characters and the journey they go on.

Once identified, the screenwriter can then start planning the structure of the screenplay:

  • character outlines
  • plot outlines/ treatments
  • and beat sheets.

Whatever the combination of tools the screenwriter uses, the ultimate goal is to have a well-thought out first draft so that the project doesn’t get bogged down in endless rewrites.

Phil’s written several screenplays and script outlines for directors and production companies. He specializes in creating beat sheets for his projects that help identify scene/ story arcs and goals. He’s available on a work-for-hire basis as sole screenwriter, or as a collaborator.
