In-depth Script Notes and Analysis

Phil Parker, StoriesByPhil, Screenwriter for hire

Detailed script notes by an award-winning, optioned and working screenwriter

Are you:

  • a screenwriter with a draft that needs in-depth script analysis?
  • a director with a script that needs detailed script notes?
  • a producer short on time who needs to know how to fix a script?

Screenwriter Phil Parker has worked for several high-profile companies, including Hallmark, Cinergi, director Roland Joffe, and  screenwriting service The Script Doctor. He’s also helped countless individuals with script coverage and analysis to prepare their scripts for market (see reviews below). Phil has also had his articles on the craft of screenwriting published by Script Magazine, the world’s top screenwriting website.

Phil’s specialized approach as a script consultant brings his love for teaching, storytelling and the hero’s journey together to give clients the deepest possible insights into their screenplays. Page-by-page examples of dialogue, character, plot, pacing and formatting are addressed so it becomes clear what’s working in the script, and what’s not. See below for details on the script service Phil offers.

Need more than just notes on your script? Hire a screenwriter! Phil is available for collaboration on screenwriting projects, or as a stand-alone screenwriter for those who have a concept, synopsis or outline they need turned into a screenplay.

you get all of this:

Highly recommend Phil!

"Script consultant Phil Parker looked at two of my projects. The first is at a concept stage, the second is a script at an advanced stage. The concept stage project review was excellent. We’re not out of the deep water yet, but after his review, Phil has increased the chances of becoming a workable story. The second project review was also excellent. Whilst the script was at an advanced stage, Phil managed to provide some great recommendations, most of which I will take on. Script consultant skills aside, he is easy going and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Phil for anyone that would like their story or script reviewed."
