CONSULTING TESTIMONIALS

"Sara is AMAZING at what she does... consulting producers that are project passionate, while steering their focus in the right direction. My story had every element needed, except for the gel to mesh all of the important elements together. Sara delivered what she thought the project needed in less than an hour, and the pitch went as smooth as ever. The show has been picked up my a major cable network, and I'm truly grateful for Sara's gift!"

Essence Wallace-Odomes

The Chosen Productions

"Using Sara Elizabeth as a consultant definitely ranks up there as one of my best decisions ever regarding my writing career! The thoroughness with which she read over the work I sent to her and the questions she aimed at me so that I would get the most from the consult made all the difference. Instead of a scattershot type session she pinpointed steps I could take to hone in on the most precise ways I could achieve the goals I was aiming at. I came away elated at the possibilities ahead of me using her guidelines!"

Donna Coomer

Between the Lines Production

"Whether it’s her insight into the script as a whole, introducing an idea to add flavor or depth to a scene or character, or just asking questions to help me address conflicts I am struggling with, my writing and story structure has greatly improved since having her as my consultant. Sara amazes me at how hands on she is, immersing herself in a project from conception and investing the time to understand the emotion and true meaning behind the stories and characters I write.  After our meetings,I am always excited about her thoughts and suggestions and left with the confidence that she is looking out for the best interests of myself, my work and the production as a whole. Sara is my secret weapon and truly priceless in my book!"

Roxanne Marchand

Writer, Director

"Sara Elizabeth was instrumental in providing knowledgeable and valuable advice as our team developed our distribution strategy and negotiated with domestic and foreign distributors for our first feature film. She helped identify suitable distributor options, offered suggestions on pitching to distributors, and provided useful information needed to negotiate our distribution deals."

“After 30 years in the business world, I’ve discovered that many people are motivated solely by a paycheck while only a select few truly want to help their clients succeed. Sara is one of the select few. Not only does she genuinely care, but Sara is an immensely talented script consultant who has tremendous insight into storytelling and character development.  She also possesses the rare qualities of being both a creative filmmaker and having a solid business acumen.  That’s why I’m excited to have Sara on my side as I navigate my next film project.”

Bob Farkas

Writer/Producer, Crazy Famous

"Sara Elizabeth has a heart and a passion for story. Whether it be brainstorming an idea for a new project or breaking down a pivotal scene of dialogue in an almost completed script, Sara Elizabeth is mindful and focused on the heart and theme of the story. She is relentless in being true to the script and coaching writers to stay focused on through-line and objective. Sara Elizabeth also has the ability to see the project objectively.  Because of her extensive experience as a producer, she knows what is "shootable" and coaches writers to be mindful of budget and practicality while not compromising story. From concept to completion-- production to opening night screenings, Sara Elizabeth is an asset and often the driving force in getting a project done."

Rebecca Rogers Nelson

Screenwriter, Producer- Beautiful Feet Productions

"Sara coached my team in preparation for a film pitch event, where we met with funding and distribution partners about our web-series. We had never pitched before (one of us is actually an accountant!), but Sara got us fully prepared for the 1-1 meetings and formal pitch. She prepared thoroughly for our weekly calls, providing materials and helping to develop our story and formal pitch. We felt extremely confident in presenting our series in front of an established film audience, and we would love to work with Sara again."

Alysse Campbell

"Sara is a knowledgeable industry professional who readily shares what she's learned over the course of her career. She's open to new projects and very encouraging to those just entering the business and seasoned professionals, alike."
