You need more than a blank sheet of paper to succeed in this business...
You need a step by step guide if you want to give your screenplay a fighting chance.
" I bought your screenwriters book online and it has helped me immensely. I have just finished two feature screenplays along with synopses and loglines and without your book I couldn't have done it. Thank you! "

Is this you? • You really can make your own "Big Break"
Wannabe screenwriter submits a script to several studios, dreaming of Oscar. Never hears from anyone. Period. The End.
Ahem...did that scene sound all too familiar? It should, because it happens here every day, untold thousands of times a year. Hollywood is a place where WHO you know translates into WHAT you know. And if you don't know anybody, then you don't know squat. Sorry to be so blunt, but you didn't want me to candycoat this, did you?
I am not referring to just having connections. The Hollywood outsider doesn't have an insider's understanding of how this industry operates. Make no mistake, it is an industry, one where people and companies make huge investments and take huge risks. If you want your script to get its foot in the door, so to speak, you will need to know how. And to know how, you have to know who, to tell you how. That's where I come in. Do you see that e-book up there at the top of the page? That's your pass to jump to the front of the line, while everyone else just stands and waits. And waits. And waits. Get the picture?
Screenwriting can be the most glorious - or the most wretched - experience in the world. But I've already done all the footwork, and made all the mistakes. I can tell you that seventeen years ago my career was languishing, until I found a mentor - and then followed his advice, doing serious rewrite after rewrite. There were four in all. Yes, being a screenwriter is hard work - but the satisfaction and the payday can be tremendous. By the time I had a polished script, the result was almost instantaneous - I got a high-profile agent, studio meetings, and the much-coveted "weekend read" - all within one week of submitting the script!
I sold that screenplay, for six figures, and have been a working screenwriter ever since.
After years of experience as a screenwriter and script consultant, I have decided to make it my personal mission to help other writers and filmmakers through the Hollywood maze. What I am about to present to you, available only online to my subscribers, will give you the benefit of my years of experience, providing a surefire system that will give you the tools to literally develop your own screenplay practically overnight. Whether you've written screenplays before but never had them optioned, or even if you have never written a script, you could be up and running within 24 hours - just by following my simple, step-by-step system that will get you writing before you know it, and going from idea, to polished draft, to lucrative studio deal.
I will show you EXACTLY what I did that made me a working screenwriter (so that you can duplicate it). We are talking about a real-life, nuts and bolts, step-by-step system, including:
I've even included samples of my own material, that's been optioned or sold, or that I was hired to write. This gives you a glimpse into the process of a working writer, information you won't get anywhere else.
Other books on screenwriting may provide brilliant and insightful analyses of movies we have all known and loved, which can be very inspiring - and very depressing. How are you going to duplicate what they do? Unfortunately, none of these experts tells you what you need to know to sit down and actually write a salable screenplay of your own. But I don't think this should be a big secret.
The ideas and exercises in this book are actually a mini screenwriting course, based on one I’ve taught. Countless other screenwriting instructors worldwide have purchased this e-book for use in their classrooms. As you will see, it will help you deliver page after page of riveting action and dialogue, no matter what the genre, that will serve you well throughout your screenwriting career. This is not just a practical how-to but an inspirational, step-by-step approach to the craft of writing for the screen. You've got the ideas - this book will help you get them out of your head, onto the page, and ultimately, on the movie screen.
"Huge shoutout to Sandy Eiges, writer and creator of the e-book HOLLYWOOD SCRIPT WRITING: HOW TO BIRTH YOUR IDEA INTO A BANKABLE SCREENPLAY!! Without this awesome woman writing this book I would not be able to write my screenplays. She takes you step by step on how to write a screenplay in which you have to participate and complete the exercises as you learn. Before you know it you've written a movie script. Mad props to you Sandy!! "

"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for writing such a helpful book. I have read other script-writing books and tried to apply the techniques they suggested, but there always seemed to be something missing and I could never grasp the concept enough to do anything with what the author was “teaching”. Now, after reading just a few pages of your book things are finally starting to “click” into place. I have a 1 page synopsis, written in the present tense that (to me) flows perfectly. What a great feeling! ....I will finally complete the script that I have wanted to write for many years now."

I recently purchased and downloaded your book on screenwriting and am really enjoying it. This is the best book on the subject I've read so far. It is clear,concise and covers all the important areas of screenwriting. I've gone through some of the exercises and would like to know your thoughts on my idea. Can we schedule a quick pitch appointment?
I think this would be most helpful. Thanks."

...I am midway through your book on how to turn a story idea into a good screenplay, and I can't thank you enough for all the tips that I've read in your book so far. I recently got this story idea, based pretty much on a real-life happening, that I started to write down thanks to the hints you offer, because until now I was really "with hands tied" as to where and how I should start, and what things I should and should not do with the screenplay. I have read many other explanatory how-to books on this area, but none of them helped me as much as yours did..."

I am in the process of reading "HOLLYWOOD SCRIPT WRITING: HOW TO BIRTH YOUR IDEA INTO A BANKABLE SCREENPLAY". There is a plethora of books/articles etc. out there, but in my opinion, yours is head and shoulders above the rest. The publication is informative and very enjoyable to read...
