Tucker Parsons was Creative Director of the Writing Department at Ignition Creative in Santa Monica (now in Playa Vista) from 2002 to 2015. Starting as their sole writer, he then recruited and led the industry’s top writing team, and helped Ignition grow from a group of a dozen friends doing trailers and TV spots for movies into a leading creative agency of over 200 employees working in all platforms. After his feature screenplay “Whalemen” won a place on the Hollywood Black List in 2012, he took leave from Ignition to write a feature film for Warner Bros. which led to get other scriptwriting jobs. He then spent a year as head writer at the movie & tv marketing agency Open Road before going independent in 2016. He now runs his own independent writing business, Tucker Parsons Creative Inc. working for studios, creative agencies and producers. He lives in LA with his wife and daughters.
