short film/sketches notes
There’s no-one better to read your script than Alli Parker. If you want someone to turn on a high-intensity beam and analyse what you’ve got, be prepared. From weakness in dialogue to structure issues, to plain old-fashioned typos, she’ll hit them all like a laser, letting you know what needs work, what needs killing, and, importantly, what the strengths of your work are and what you need to focus on to make your script the best it can be. My feedback on a Red Planet entry was comprehensive and delivered in a friendly, helpful, and constructive way. If you think your screenplay might need work, what it actually needs is Alli Parker. – Simon Underwood, writer
Not only was Alli incredibly quick at getting back to me but she clearly understood the point of every sketch and made brilliant observations for each one, offering some great advice which turned one fairly average sketch into the strongest of the bunch. I look forward to using her script reading services again. Highly recommended. – Anton Russell, writer

Alli was wonderful in giving me clear, concise feedback on my short script, pinning down exactly what needed attention and offering ideas to help me along.

Huge thanks for getting back to me so quickly – Your notes are excellent and very helpful. I was pretty much stuck knowing it wasn’t working but with no idea of why or how to proceed. A professional external viewpoint is incredibly valuable. – Graham Inman, writer and producer
Charge more…because you are awesome.– Pete Wells, producer
I sent my script out to half a dozen film makers and writers for feedback. Allison’s notes were by far the best. She absolutely understood where I was heading with my script and was able to provide useful suggestions to improve it. – Monty Burgess, writer
Alli Parker gives great script advice – genuinely constructive criticism as well as lots of fresh ideas really helped me with my second draft. Highly recommended. – Mark Webster, writer
Awesome Alli recently bailed me out of a stuck script on a tight deadline with a 24 hour turnaround. Her notes were precise, illuminating, encouraging and she immediately identified the obvious solution staring me – quite unnoticed – in the face. All win! – Adele Kirby, writer
