Default Leah Estrin

She offers consulting now. Has anyone worked with her through a consultation or known someone who has? Thanks in advance for any help.

She's a creative exec at Imagine, right?

I had a conference call with her a year or so ago about a script that made it to her desk. She was super nice and super savvy. I didn't realize she'd left Imagine. I'm sure she's a terrific resource; given her experience, I'd jump at the chance to work with her.

Consulting for producers or struggling amateur writers?

One party has the money to spend and is serious about business, whereas the other is likely far away from success and skint. The latter also implies a sense of easy-money... and I'm wary of those offering this kind of "service".

Still, someone with that kind of experience and contacts must be good to know if you can cut the mustard, so why not make your own equiries and let the rest of us know how it all went?

I did. And although this post is kinda rude I will let you all know how it went.

Leah is great, she gave me an almost 2 hour phone conversation which led to 4 pages of my own notes. She also prepared talking points in a .pdf which she sent me before the e-mail and I agreed with almost every thing she said. Her perspective didn't feel like a corporate perspective, but felt very real and writer-ish and she has a great eye for detail and offers great suggestions. I'd highly recommend her and her price was phenomenal. I will definitely work with her again.

The link to her service is here: http://www.kerwinagency.com/Writers-Workshop.html

Just wanted to respond to this. I've worked with Leah a few times now and will continue to do so. Her comments are very insightful, and she has a great perspective on story. With a lot of feedback services I don't end up responding to ideas, but Leah has great ideas that I've incorporated into my work. Highly recommend. I don't get paid to say this.

Miss Estrin may be a fantastic script consultant, but this website does her no favors.
