Up to $1 million in option monies from the A-List producers we work with.

Writers need to feel a connection to their characters – it is through these characters you try and tell your story and the theme of your script. If, as the writer, you don’t feel connected to your protagonist, or don’t provide a convincing counter-argument to them through an antagonist, the audience cannot be expected to do so either.

Whoever is doing my notes is doing a wonderful job. These are by far the best notes I've ever received. I can tell he or she has REALLY read my script. I like that every time a flaw is pointed out it comes with an explanation and a suggestion on how to fix it. Keep up the GREAT work!
