A HAPPY MOONDANCER WRITES:
“Oh my goodness gracious, thank you so much! I’m over the Moon! (You must get that a lot, sorry, but I really am) This was the competition I most wanted to win because I love your ethos, beauty, and spirit of sincerity and joy. Thank you for selecting my script ‘Flappers’ as the only finalist in the TV Pilot category. I did a happy-1920s Flappers-Charleston-dance!” ~ Kristina Day, UK
“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only by night.” ~ Edgar Allan Poe

“You’ve got 5 minutes; pitch me what you’ve got.” That’s what the entertainment industry producers, directors, actors & agents, the real movers & shakers, will tell you. But to get that first meeting or even a reply to your query letter, you need an interesting, attention-getting & unique title and logline for your script, story or film. Elizabeth has developed a sure-fire method for finding that great, eye-catching title, and a sizzling short logline to go with it. You’ll end up with a great title & logline, and knowing how to “dress” your scripts or films for that all-important first impression and success!

“If you want to succeed, you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel only the worn paths of accepted success.” ~ John D. Rockefeller, Jr.
“Take a moment to ask yourself if you’re on track with you. Now is the time to take responsibility for your own life and to love yourself enough to take the action required.
