I created for YOU an easy method of scriptwriting utilizing Dov’s 2 Day Film School blunt approach to writing movie scripts and enhanced and expanded it to help YOU, an aspiring scriptwriter, as well as actor-writers, director-writers and producer-writers to become what YOU want to be  – a major player.  To get there YOU need a movie script. 

  • I work one-on-one with scriptwriters worldwide
  • You will write your first LOW BUDGET movie script (that’s how you get started – Tarantino did it and many more)
  • I will manage you and get you an agent when you complete a marketable well written script

So YOU can

– get your foot in the door – get on the grid – be a Hollywood player.

Don’t let anyone tell you YOU can’t do it.

Repeat after meI can do it, yes I can.

I met Dov over 18 years ago and have used what I learned from him every single day of my life in Hollywood.  I went forward and worked on every studio lot where I devoured the expertise of everyone I came in contact with.  I utilized top of the line talents of the pros and developed techniques in movie (and TV) scriptwriting that far exceeded what was out there for scriptwriters to learn from.  Writers needed to know how to write amazing movie scripts.  I’ve read over a 1,000 movie scripts for production companies, producers, execs, directors, well known writers, agents and mangers over the years.  I found a better way to help hopeful scriptwriters achieve their best scriptwriting. Scriptwriting is a ‘learned’ craft.
