"Somewhere between grad school and no school lies a more personalized approach to a screenwriting education."
After 10+ years as a writer, director, editor and producer, Hunter believes, for some writers, a more personalized approach to learning the art of screenwriting, the development process, and the art of pitching, would be a better fit. Reinforced by experience in nearly every aspect of the entertainment industry, Hunter works with beginners and advanced professionals alike, offering both introductory education and comprehensive script development.
Hunter currently has a feature film in development with UK based 42 Productions. Hunter worked internationally as a screenwriter, has produced award-winning web series/indie content, and pitched and sold a one-hour, historical drama series in 2017. Animalgeddon, the first in a middle-grade, sci-fi, adventure trilogy, was published by Fernweh books in 2016.
Hunter, who serves as visiting faculty for Hollins University's Graduate Screenwriting and Film Studies Program, works with beginners and advanced professionals alike, offering introductory education, script analysis and comprehensive development consultation. Having pitched to Universal, Imagine, Dreamworks, Netflix, and dozens of production companies, Hunter helps clients hone their project pitches with one-on-one coaching sessions and is an animated public speaker on how to "Pitch it Up a Notch!"® Hunter is also available to create customized pitch decks, which have been essential to pit and setting up client projects with major studios and production companies.

“Hunter and I went to graduate school together and have collaborated on a number of projects. She's extremely knowledgeable about story and structure for both television and film. If you're looking for someone to teach you the craft, or more specifically, help you better understand scene work, I highly recommend her. Not only is she bright and creative, Hunter has an incredible work ethic and truly enjoys collaborating with fellow writers.”

“Haven't you always wished that you knew what your dog was thinking? Well, in Hunter Phillips' new action-packed book, Animalgeddon. That wish comes true, but it gets very messy. Very messy, indeed!”
Oscar nominated director, The Lion King
"Hunter is such a joy to work with. Her personality and professionalism really bring out the best in her actors. Her passion and drive for each project motivate all of those around her to be at the top of their game. I would highly recommend everyone to get off his or her butt and get on the HUNT for a career by working with HUNTER. You see what I did there with her name? That's comedy!!!"
actor, , The Righteous Gemstones, Nickelodeon's School of Rock
“In working with Hunter professionally, I assumed that comedy was her strong suit. After collaborating with her on a few comedic projects, I found her wit to be razor sharp, while providing fresh insight to character and story. Then-- I read her epic drama 'Union Maid' . This rivetting period piece floored me with its accuracy, and the gut wrenching plight of its characters...Hunter can do it all. ”
