Judy and I continue to work with writers from all over the world on screenplays, TV pilots, plays etc (and Judy does books, and books to screenplays as well). We enjoy our work immensely, and feel that our greatest contribution is on a creative level, always following our credo that the number one secret in getting something going in the writing biz is material that’s ready.
Writing a screenplay is a marathon and Craig Kellem knows the route to a successful finish. I have been working with Craig at Hollywoodscript.com since October 2011. He gave me honest analysis in what my script needed and what could be cut. He didn’t try to rewrite the script, but guided and encouraged me so my creativity and originality were written into every scene. His experience and knowledge of the industry standards greatly assisted me when constructing my new screenplay.
Finishing a well written screenplay that can take the reader on an emotional ride is an accomplishment in and of itself. For me, getting the right script notes and winning the Hollywoodscript.com monthly contest was the next step to getting it sold. My screenplay, Saint Michael, won the January 2013 contest. The exposure it received from Craig Kellem’s glowing coverage sent to his contacts, and the free access to distribution outlets such as Inktip and Scriptblaster (and one other big one) was invaluable. So far, I have sent my screenplay to eight production companies or agents. In April 2013, I signed with a very experienced agent in Los Angeles who’s excited about selling the screenplay! Craig's announcement caught the attention of this agent.
Craig Kellem at Hollywoodscript.com is the complete package. He offers excellent creative services and marvelous exposure for the winners of the monthly contest. If you want straightforward analysis from someone who is easy to talk to, Craig Kellem is your man.
**LOVE IN A BOX BY LANA NEWLIN
An Indie company in L.A. with two produced films has optioned Love in a Box. The prizes I received for winning your contest helped to open up good communication and doors to many companies who are now following my work. Thank you so much, Craig, for all the effort and professional help you gave me through the writing process to take it from a rough draft to a polished product. You have amazing qualities that make you special. You can always see what needs to be changed to make the script better. You never let me settle for "almost there." And your best asset (for clients) - you are a great teacher. Lana Newlin
