Script Consultant Testimonials

script consultant Phil Parker

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."

A great script consultant!

"My story ‘Kindred’ is now a unique, fun and powerful screenplay because Phil challenges your story to be the most potent it can be. He really knows structure and how to write with economy, flair and versatility. He's so good he got Kindred to the SEMIFINALS of the prestigious BlueCat Screenplay Competition (top 2.2% of 3272 entries)!! Your script will be in great hands!"
