I've worked as a staff editor/writer my entire career, starting with books, moving on to women's magazines and now web sites. I've always wanted to write fiction and have been stewing over ideas for far too long. I'm working on my first screenplay.
A mix of comedy, romantic comedy, and drama, more heavily weighted toward romantic comedy. Select Woody Allen (Vicky Christina Barcelona, Annie Hall, Manhattan Murder Mystery), The Devil Wears Prada, Moonstruck, Little Miss Sunshine, Best in Show, Tootsie, Bridget Jones’s Diary. Pride & Prejudice (it's a girl thing--Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy) and Four Weddings and a Funeral. Fargo, Goodfellas, A Few Good Men (favorite line: "I'm gonna rip the eyes out of your head and piss into your dead skull!"), The Godfather. Casablanca. Death at a Funeral (BBC version). There’s plenty more, but I think I’ve said enough.
I attended Robert McKee's screenwriting seminar about 15 years ago (I know, wow). Took two courses and a workshop with Marc Leiberman at NYSCE ... fantastic teacher!

Very smart group of people, helpful, constructive feedback on the script we were reviewing (I picked up some good pointers myself) and David is a gifted leader.
