I will work with you, using your screenplay, to show you the mistakes you’re making and how to fix those mistakes. You will be actively engaged in the learning process while correcting your own screenplay.
I prefer screenplays to be written in Final Draft or Movie Magic Screenwriter and submitted electronically. I will accept screenplays written in MS word, OpenOffice, PDF files or hard copies, however, there will be an additional fee for printing and postage.
The Mentoring Process
Each time you send me pages for review, I will:
- point out the errors by email, in person (if you live in the Seattle area), or by telephone conference.
- return the pages
- include a breakdown of the mistakes
- explain why I made those adjustments
Breakdown of the Mentoring Process
