    I won the Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and my work has been mentioned in the New York Times, Fade In and W Magazine. I've sold several options and had Academy Award-winning actors attached to my projects. I read over 450 screenplays a year from both amateurs and professionals. You might best know me from the Youtube Channel -- WORD DANCER - How to write a screenplay. I believe learning screenwriting should be FUN!

    As a beginning screenwriter, I found the Black Belt course helpful. I have basic elements (characters, plot, theme) worked out. If I hadn't done that, I would come back to this course later. I have found the Word Dancer videos on YouTube to be some of the most practical videos on screenwriting. Thanks for a high-quality product at great price.

    Beautiful! I needed a way to give my story dimension and depth and Word Dancer came through with this gem of a course. This type of storytelling really resonates with me. My favorite directors who inspired me to want to be a writer-director (Bunuel, Bergman etc..) all told stories in non- linear out of the box style. Coming from a music background and not a literary one this kind of storytelling fits like a glove because with writing songs in music we would take a simple melody or guitar riff or bass line and figure out how to build on that and create something cool that felt right. WD has given me the toolkit to use those same concepts from the music world and apply it to screenwriting. Bravo!!

    Thank you Pamela. I have been watching some of your videos over the last few years but as soon as I began going through the "chapters" of the Black Belt Story Theory I was hooked. Of course I looked at different ways of approaching story and bringing more depth to mine but I never heard anything that gave a such a succinct and actionable approach from the get go -to a richer story. After a few lessons I was already rearranging my thoughts on how I'm approaching my latest story - I'm much clearer now about what aspects of the story my lead characters will deliver. I'm impressed and feel that my writing just got a much needed boost in creativity and craft. Thank you. Glad I did this.

    Fantasticly simple breakdown of entire structure into building blocks, leaving you in the role of a graduated story architect! <3
