Here are just a few testimonials from some of the people I’ve worked with:
Jamie Nash, screenwriter Exists, V/H/S/2, Lovely Molly, ParaAbnormal
John’s that unusual mix of left-brain/right-brain. He’s able to see the big picture and laser focus on individual scenes and beats. His notes are the perfect companion for that next rewrite.
Aaron de Orive, screenwriter
Before a script goes to my reps or an interested producer, I go to John Jansen. He boosts the script’s strengths, helps eliminate the flaws, and gets it ready for primetime. What more could you want from a talented script reader?
John Gaspard, director Ghost Light, Grown Men, Beyond Bob, Resident Alien
John Jansen’s script notes were a huge help on the last four features I directed. His insightful perspective helped me find and solve problems before I started shooting, instead of doing painful surgery in post. He really gets the nuts and bolts of screenwriting, while also understanding the unique restrictions imposed by film production. John’s the real deal when it comes to screenwriting.
Jerry Pope, director Two Popes
John’s insights and expertise were extremely
valuable, especially as regards structure. He helped bring order to my chaos.
Nate Langford, screenwriter
John is always the first person I turn to to get insight into my screenplays. His ability to see the big picture and the smallest details in story, structure, character, and dialogue have made my scripts, and my writing, better and stronger. Because of John’s constructive analysis, my most recent script, The Cursed (in collaboration with Jeffrey Reddick, creator of the Final Destination franchise) became more taut and terrifying. I highly recommend John to anyone who wants to take their stories to the next level.
