« Lisa is a fantastic teacher! I know Lisa as a friend, colleague, and as her student. As an expert improviser, Lisa is great at getting on the same page as her students to help them grow and achieve their goals. She is supportive and challenges them in a confidence-boosting yet real way. She's always positive and when working with Lisa, I always felt like I was in a collaborative process that was fun and pushed me to be creative and my full self. She truly is a SUPERprof! »

Writer (Bachelor of Arts) with Writing Experience Offering Personalized Script Doctoring, Script Editing, and Rewrite Services

Methodology

My method is to read each script a minimum of five times and provide comprehensive script and editing notes. I will provide notes based on the rhythm, movement, and overall tone. I will make suggestions for specific line cuts. I will ask questions which will help you clarify scene objectives, relationships, and the purpose/action of each line. I will also catch spelling and grammatical errors, I will help you to polish any areas that are unclear, and I will help you prepare your script for submission. I can also assist in recommending ways in which to pitch and market your script.

Background

I am a screenwriter and script doctor with real-world experience, having been paid to write for several web series, a transmedia project, blogs, and a fashion and news TV show which aired in the US and China. I have also taken script writing classes at UCLA Extension, The Writing Pad (LA), and multiple LA workshops and online courses. I attended Story Expo in LA as well. My comedy pilot was selected to be hosted on The Blacklist, and the same comedy pilot was also selected as a Top Ten Finalist in the Austin TV Pitch Competition.
