Services by Kristi Barnett - Mindspawn Media Limited



Hello! I'm an optioned screenwriter who's sold a screenplay and I've been working in the industry for over a decade, with screenplays at various degrees of development with producers. I  am offering my services as a script reader to give notes and feedback on your screenplays.  I've assessed scripts for Philantos Films in L.A and been a script reader for the New Zealand Writers Guild.  


I specialize in feature genre screenplays. That's what I write and that's what producers, directors, DoP's, script developers and creative directors praise me for and recognize my talent in.



I understand what makes an enticing genre script that producers pay attention to.



Feature film screenplays only except for Clean Me

Max 120pgs

“Some high praise passed on to you, for your efforts in the Script Assessment service:

“Once again the quality of the feedback was excellent.  Please say a big thank you to the reader – the comments were wonderful and helped me with a total re-write of the script which we are currently casting and will film in late November.”



Philantos Films:

“All the critiques are now in (6 total).  After a cursory review, yours was the most thoughtful (and two of the reviewers are well-respected professional consultants)”.

“Our internal person agreed with many of your assessments. Our reader (very intelligent woman, with a doctorate) made it crystal clear to me that you were spot on with your assessments”.
