Who is this class good for?

OPEN TO ALL

Private coaching is open to anyone at any phase of the creative process. Coaching sessions do not include script analysis. Instead, we focus on your next steps to move towards production.

For script analysis, please see below for script development tips!

SCRIPT DEVELOPMENT TIPS

Make sure your script is tight before heading to production.

So many creators make one simple mistake: working really hard to produce a script that is not finished yet. You don’t want to be in the production phases and realize that you have holes in your script that you now have to fix. I strongly encourage every creator to thoroughly take the time to find the holes in your ship before you set sail!

The best way to do this is to get objective readers on your scripts. I recommend submitting to any of the screenplay/webseries script festivals or groups, and paying the extra dollars to receive coverage from the readers. Coverage will give you major insights about what is working and not working.

RECOMMENDED GROUPS FOR SCREENPLAY COVERAGE:

Some of the reputable groups that offer coverage (aka analysis) are:

  1. Black List (www.blcklst.com)
  2. Spec Scout (www.SpecScout.com)
  3. Austin Film festival (https://austinfilmfestival.com/submit/coverage-program/) — they are one of the top programs in the whole industry for coverage
  4. We Screenplay (https://www.wescreenplay.com/coverage/)

If you still need to strengthen your script, you can also take screenwriting classes for more inspiration and guidance on strengthening the script. In NYC, I recommend Jacob Krueger Screenwriting Studio, Ela Thier’s screenwriting classes at Independent Film School, and Save The Cat books and weekend workshops.

What you get

Some people feel they need either regular or sporadic coaching sessions to get their project into motion or across the finish line. Through one-on-one Skype sessions, I share personalized guidance drawn from my experience producing and writing films. Coaching saves you time and gets you straight to the punch sooner!

Studio guarantee

Full disclosure—please note that we do not guarantee that actors in these workshops will be hired for any project that we might direct or cast. We do guarantee my supportive honesty and my open sharing of knowledge. We teach and coach because we enjoy supporting actors as they develop their process of working within the audition room. We seek to build their knowledge about the business of auditioning.
