“As a long-time coach and contest judge, I can tell on the first page if a script is going to be an engaging or painful read. We created PageCraft to help you solve your script’s problems or avoid them in the first place so you can take your script to the next level.

“Many of our clients have gone on to find representation, win contests, and become working writers. I’m a graduate of UCLA’s screenwriting program, and I’ve written numerous features, treatments, and TV pilots for various independent producers. In addition, I’ve directed and produced numerous commercials, music videos, and electronic press kits for various artists. I apply our PageCraft story principles to my own projects resulting in engaging pieces and happy clients. I will train you to do the same to unlock the potential of your writing. Let us help you craft a script that judges and executives can’t put down.”

“Heidi quickly clears out the clutter and helps you identify your character’s defining traits and the seven-point structure essential for telling your story. I got more accomplished in one three-hour session with her than I had in years. I had the tools I needed to flesh out a ten-page outline in three days. I highly recommend Heidi as a mentor or writing coach if you want to find the magic in your story and get your script written!”
