We cover everything you need – the goal is to get you from a wanna-be scriptwriter with no sellable script to having a script you can produce, star in, or sell. 

Shorten your learning curve by weeks, months, even years. Don’t just intend to write – get going – learn to write right now.

I know why 100% of the aspiring, newbie writers fail and know why you’ll never get a sellable completed script unless you get personal professional help.

I’m here to help you get things DONE.

Getting a great idea into a movie idea – DONE

(we must find the movie – the idea just gets the ball rolling)

Getting your logline down – DONE

(what is your movie about)

Getting ACT 1, ACT 2, ACT 3 envisioned – DONE

(breaking down your movie idea into proper formatting)
Getting to know your characters inside out – DONE.

(this requires an intense discovery)
Getting your first 5 lines to WOW them into wanting to read more – DONE.

(if it doesn’t “wow” the Reader won’t keep reading)
Getting your first page to blow the Reader out of the water – DONE.

(the script is not the movie – its what gets you in the door to talk about your project)
Getting a push to finish what you’ve started – DONE.

(proper scriptwriting is very rigid – it’s really 90% left brain and 10% right brain)
Getting a push to focus on accomplishing your script – DONE.

(There’s a huge work ethic needed for scriptwriting and many writers get discouraged)
Getting back to basics if you’re starting over – this time with new & better basics – DONE.

(100% of aspiring writers never got the basics)
Getting to your second draft completed – DONE.

(once you finish a script you need feedback – then you need to polish)
Getting your rewrite or update completed – DONE.

(you can’t get discouraged – I’m here to keep you going & do it with you, do it for you)
Getting your mind aligned to free up debilitating, defeating mindsets or behavior – DONE.

(aspiring writers get scared, so we work through those to have a goal)
Getting to your 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. scripts if you want – DONE.
