Hear From Our Satisfied Clients

Masami’s notes were very professional... My biggest takeaway from your notes was how polished you they were about the structure of the script and not just the structure of story, or of the creative elements, but the literal structure of how you write a script. Your notes gave me a new level of confidence to share the script with other industry professionals.
This is helpful. I've shown the script to a few different people … but I think this is the first time that anyone's really taken a critical look at it and was like, ‘OK, if I'm going to actually make this into a thing’, these are the things that I would be looking for’. And all the critiques that you've given make sense and knowing at least that I have good set up and and semi-solid characters, that makes my short story writing even better.
I truly believe that there are so many people like me that are like, "I'm funny, I can write," true, but I didn't go to school for this and I don't have like the all the precise things that you have. You just gave me a semester of a writing class

After your review and notes, I am confident that I have a working foundation to start with and which direction to move in in terms of my next draft. I gained writing skills and reading from an audience perspective so that I could become more detailed. I think deeper in character development and just overall grammar. Getting me to write and be inspired to do it and focus without getting into my own head.

No, I cannot directly get you a manager. However, I can provide tips on how to improve your skills and reputation as a writer so that managers take notice of you and seek you out.

I cannot directly connect you with financiers. However, I can assist with developing a strong logline to share with potential financiers. We do have partners who are looking for loglines and we often share the loglines of projects with them. Ultimately financiers will decide if they want to move forward based on the logline.
