CONCEPT TO SCREENPLAY

screenwriter for hire Phil PArker

Building your story from the ground up

Need to hire a professional screenwriter?

Maybe you 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.

A great screenwriter!

"My indigenous sci-fi 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. KINDRED even won 1st Place at the Native American Tribal Film Festival! Your script will be in great hands!"
