 Helena Derett's guidance through my screenplay rewrite was invaluable. She has a sharp and practiced eye, and a gift for knowing what works, and how to accomplish it. 

Robin F. Gainey

Published novelist / Optioned screenwriter

Helena was extremely helpful in elevating several scripts I have written. Her suggestions regarding conflict, plot, and dialogue were a lifesaver and she has been a part of helping my career as a producer and screenwriter advance in great ways.

 The professionally written notes targeted all the strengths and the weaknesses in the script from structure to pacing, characters and dialogue. The comments gave me huge encouragement. Helped me take my script to the next level. Highly recommend!
