About Pilar Alessandra:

Pilar Alessandra is the director of the popular writing program "On The Page." A sought after teacher and lecturer, she's traveled the world teaching screenwriting and is in high demand at major writing conferences and film festivals. As a consultant, she's helped thousands of writers create, refine and sell their screenplays. Her students and clients have sold to Disney, DreamWorks, Warner Brothers and Sony and have won prestigious competitions such as the Austin Film Festival, Open Door Competition, Fade-In Competition and Nicholl Fellowship.
Pilar jump-started her career in film as a script reader for Amblin Entertainment. With the formation of DreamWorks, she became Senior Story Analyst and a reader liaison between the studio and Robert Zemeckis's company, ImageMovers. Her expert script analysis was also sought out by The Robert Evans Company, Cineville Entertainment, Handprint Entertainment and Saturday Night Live Studios, and work at Interscope Communications led her to a position as Senior Story Analyst for Scott Kroopf's production company Radar Pictures.
Pilar was later bitten by the "teaching bug" while teaching screenwriting and story analysis at the UCLA Writers' Program. In 2001 she started her own company, "On the Page," and in 2004 opened the On the Page Writers Studio in Sherman Oaks, California.

    Pilar is a GREAT screenwriting instructor. I've made the trip to California three times within the last two years and taken her classes. I've also used her for script consultations. Very useful and enjoyable. This class is a MUST!

    I loved how much actual story development and writing we did. You can actually get the beats of your story out in 10 minutes. Her process is amazing. I hope she comes back for the rewrite class! Thank you Carlo! Thank you Pilar!

    Carlo; I got a confirmation e mail from Pilar when I registered and paid for the class that advised she would send out per-work about 2 weeks before the class. I have not received anything yet. Do you know if she has sent that yet? Thanks!
