Script Concierge is up and running! As many of you know, I have been doing a lot of script reading and coverage lately and I love it. I really love the feeling of helping a writer get their script into the best shape it can be in. I also love telling new writers about great coaches and workshops such as: Ellen Sandler. True story I was doing coverage last week for a fellow writer who wants to work in television, and she had never heard of Ellen!! I was shocked-but then I remember 5 years ago when I was trying to get my first show on the air, I hadn't either. I told this writer to go buy Ellen's book and she did and her pilot is already stronger. Yay! I know that stuff. The last five years have been intense for me, in the scriptwriting world. I have taken so many classes and workshops and online classes and attended many panels that now I have this wealth of information that took me five years to collect-almost like going to university full time. And during that time, I have written many scripts from screenplays to spec teleplays to original pilots and been hired in development and as a writer. I love what I do and I really get excited helping others.
So I decided to teach a class on character and dialogue called, Who Said That? starting on Sept 10th, please email me at stepholivieri at stephanieolivieri.com for more info, or check my blog (see above) and or my website, www.stephanieolivieri.com. Dialogue is something that most writers struggle with-if you're not one of them-you are lucky-and I happen to be really good at it and more importantly being able to see when characters are lost in the same voice and or undefined voices.
This all said, I am very excited, please feel free to share with other writers. I have been contacted already about doing a couple lectures for a couple studios, and I am open to collaborating with others as well. I am working on my new book, Who Said That? as well.
I hope that you are all having a great day and continuing stopping by, this blog is really my fun, op ed blog where I can say anything even if not industry related.
Cheers and happy Monday!
