Pamela Bolinder, Screenwriting Lounge Post:
I highly recommend Tony S. as a script consultant (I hope that's okay, Tony). He gives succinct script notes that burrow straight to the heart of pothole issues and offers suggestions for improvement and he's affordable. Your script has to sing before you promote it. I have read some comments here on Stage 32 that tout they do not use consultants. Careful, having another set of eyes may be what kicks your script over the top! If you are someone who has an arsenal of well-written scripts and have not achieved critical acclaim you might want to throw a few dollars in that direction!

Tony S. is your man. His fees are reasonable and will give you solid advice (sharp as a whip) and then you'll be on your way.

Brian Elias, Screenwriting Lounge Post:
Guys, I can't tell you how good this experience was. As a writer/artist-- ever just wish you could meet someone or show someone your work who just gets it??? Well, Tony S is that guy. He just got it!

His insight into what I was attempting to do was disarming, like he saw right through me, but in the best possible way. His notes were constructive, his criticism fair and his overall tone was beyond encouraging!

Basically, I'm saying he's the best.
