screenwriting can feel like going through the desert alone.
let me keep you company.
ASK ME ABOUT YOUR SCREENPLAY…
I see so many projects flounder because it feels like you have to muscle through yourself. (we’re writers! we must struggle!) Well, I can’t take away all the struggle but I can help you locate the heart of the story and return to objective thinking about your film. Most importantly I want to set you up to be excited about your next draft! Your project deserves it.
I have a masters degree in story. I’ve worked for Disney, Walden Media and Indian Paintbrush reading screenplays and writing coverage. I’ve written award-winning screenplays. Most importantly, professionals and friends have entrusted me to offer them feedback for over a decade.
‘Lena is the Marina Abramovic of script notes’ - Mimi Jeffries writer/director Open Roads
‘Lena’s notes are amazing. Her feedback is thoughtful and specific and I always have a better understanding of the strong and weak points of my script after her assessments. With over a decade of narrative training and experience, I have full faith that notes from Lena are ones I can confidently rely on to put me in the right path for my next draft. - Debra Moore Muñoz, writer Mayans MC
‘When I was in the weeds on my script, Lena is who I turned to to spot the issues I wasn't seeing. In working with her, we were able to make the story work, keep my vision in tact, and make it funnier in the process.’ - Jack Newell
NOW THAT I HAVE YOU HOOKED…
I offer my consulting services at any stage of your process - from outline to screenplay to rough cut of your film!
I offer a ‘sensitivity pass’ service - honest feedback about the diversity in your project and red flags for what you might unintentionally be communicating. No judgement - just perspective!
AND, I offer English grammar revisions for those who need a native speaker to polish their drafts for competitions!
