CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

"Mel's direction was solid. Not only did I get a better feel for what my story was lacking and how to fix it, she also helped me understand what the script looks like from a production standpoint. Highly recommend her." - Karen M.

"Mel’s script consulting was incredibly helpful for me. Her insight and attention to detail helped me to understand the problems and possibilities in my screenplay, which helped me move forward into successive drafts. Her constructive criticism comes from a place as a fellow writer, which made it feel like someone was working with me as opposed to just giving notes. Above all, she’s honest in her assessments, which is something you can’t put a price on." - Todd R.
