Topics like how to market your screenplay, deliver an elevator pitch and enter contests are also covered. Great for beginners or experienced writers looking for a jump-start.

Most recently, a producer in Seattle acquired the rights to her screenplay Followed, and she is making her documentary directing debut with a humorous documentary There She Is, Mrs. Massachusetts, which finished filming in Spring of 2009.
