THE RIGHT KIND OF FEEDBACK

Diagnosing what ails your current draft starts with examining your concept. Is it solid? Does it get people excited when they hear it? If so, and your screenplay still isn’t satisfying readers, then Phil can help find the weak spots.

 

He will break down and examine its plot, characters, dialogue, theme, and pacing and provide examples of what's not working and possible ways to fix it.
