Alison Parker is a Canadian screenwriter, director, author, and person, currently residing in Los Angeles, California. Notable achievements include several award-winning short films which she directed and produced and are now available via digital platforms and DVD. In 2016, Alison moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in screenwriting.
Alison enjoys writing comedy and all its subgenres, with a special emphasis on the least-marketable genre of all, horror comedy. Her writing is often described as “gut-busting hilarious” or “bat-shit crazy”. Her horror comedy Log (about a Log that springs to life and kills people) won the Grand Prize at the Canadian Film Festival and was awarded a $10,000 development grant from the Harold Greenberg Fund. She later signed a distribution deal with Raven Banner Entertainment, though the script is still seeking financing.
In 2019, Alison published her first book entitled “Titlepalooza Vol. 1 – 200 Title Prompts to Help Screenwriters Brainstorm Movie Ideas“. This workbook introduces a revolutionary new way for screenwriters to generate ideas while honing their logline skills simultaneously. She also runs a Discord community called The Screenwriters Network, where she provides support and resources to over 2000 screenwriters across the globe.
Alison’s goal is to sit back in the director’s chair and bring one of her screenplays to life, then later sit in the audience and realize that nobody gets it. Until then, she can be found wrangling her two puppies, listening to Synthwave music, and fishing for salmon on the cement banks of the LA river.
