Please Make This A DVD, 2 March 2011
Author: ( from Tucson

I use it in classes and workshops because it shows the business of the writer/ producer side of The Business better than anything I've found. Lynda Obst book is amazing but students need this video take on that. AMC and Tailslate need to release this. I'm not just talking to hear myself. The producers she interviews are at the top of their games. Including Lynda and her new TV Series Hot In Cleveland. The clip on the set of The Wash tells beginning filmmakers and screenwriters a great deal about even what Hollywood considers a Small Budget movie. For 10 years, I have taught regularly at the L.A. Screen writing Expos, the University of Arizona, Prescott College and Pima College. I have specialized in writing for film and television, theater history, acting, theater survey, media survey, journalism (reporting), humanities survey and script analysis (at my successful Internet business Rated No. 1 in Nation 2010). As a professional journalist, I won several awards as a film and theater reviewer, editor and reporter. I have extensive experience as a theater/film director and as a member of both professional unions, Equity and SAG. I've acted in theater and film. My newest project is CoyoteMoon
