Dear Screenwriters Group,
I also had the extreme pleasure and good fortune to work with Jeff.  I have been stuck on this script for two years.  I felt I was drowning in my own work and I didn't know how to structure the script.  Jeff helped me so much!  I now have 100 notecards and an actual story!!!!
I know I have tons of work ahead but I have hope!!!  So I recommend working with Jeff.   Although I had read all the right books and attended workshop I couldn't apply them to my own work.  I needed a kick.  He did not literally kick me though.  :)

I had the extreme pleasure of spending time on the phone this week with Jeff discussing my novel "Ockham,'s Razor."  I felt as though I got 10 times more value than I paid for!  He offered some GREAT suggestion on ways to improve the plot and story lines as well as characters.  His coaching was honest, straightforward and insightful.  Some of it was hard to hear, but that is why I hired him.  I didn't want a white-wash job and didn't get one. 

In addition to some great coaching I also found a kindred soul who loves movies and story telling.

I am confident that my book will be better for having spent the time with Jeff.  He needs to raise his rates!  This was the very best experience I have had in 5 years with a coach.

Carlo, thank you for bringing Jeff into the group.  I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who is serious about improving their works and writing.
