“Tara has a remarkable talent for seeing the big picture and the minutiae of a script all at the same time. She has given me script notes that blew my mind with the depth that they drew out of me as a writer, making the action and dialogue in each scene resonate with the overall theme. Her experience as an actor and producer are also huge assets in terms of analyzing scripts for performance, believability, and do-ability. With her help, one of my comedy scripts Male Order was shortlisted for the Austin Film Festival screenplay competition.” – Paula Tiberius, writer-director “Goldirocks”, screenwriter “Male Order”, “Bitch Magnet”, novelist “The Cowboy Singer”, blog writer “Paula Tiberius.com”
“If you take someone truly gifted at script notes and story ideas and you cram them into a Red Bull can of energy and support – you’ve got Tara Samuel.

“Tara has the remarkable ability to see the “big picture” when the writer is lost in the details and can help you divine the true story you are telling. She also has an innate sense of character and an extraordinary talent for taking mediocre dialogue and making it smart, funny and nuanced. She is the first person I go to with my scripts and she gives me the confidence I need to dive back in and move the project forward.” – Kathryn Winslow, screenwriter, “Downtown Mrs.Brown”
“Tara’s feedback has been invaluable to the story development on four of my scripts (Reliance, The Caftan Club, Absolving Grace, Empty). Even when all she had to say was, “make it.” Which I did.” – Darrow Carson, MFA, founder Aboutstage, NY, produced playwright and screenwriter “Missing Tonto”, “Empty”.
“Tara’s honest, enthusiastic, detailed notes were invaluable to me. Exceptional understanding of overall story arc. She gave me the boost I needed to take my screenplay, ‘Bang Baby Bang’, from “good” to “GREAT!” She’s a gem. I’ll be using her again, and again.” – Gareth Bennett – Screenwriter, “Bang Baby Bang”
“Tara has been a close partner on several of my scripts. Her understanding of story and character has really helped me to create much more depth and added texture to all aspects of my scripts. Her notes are always very insightful, forcing me to take a step back and see my stories from a whole new, better perspective. I believe she is a remarkable talent and I’m excited to have her on my team.” – Andrew Ahn, Screenwriter, “The Good Life”, “Summer Vacay“; Writer-Director, “Biggz”; Co-Producer, “Ruby Booby”
