Steve Kaplan has been coaching screenwriters and filmmakers for more than 20 years. His clients have included writers and directors working on their first scripts, as well as producers, directors, and production companies here in Hollywood and around the world. His students and clients include Oscar and Emmy winners and nominees.
Steve’s one-on-one consultations are a dynamic process — a two-way conversation which often illuminates unforeseen solutions to help achieve the best expression of the writer’s vision.
These consultation packages are designed to give you the most effective coaching at every stage of the screenwriting or development process, from formulating a story idea to treatments, first draft and revisions. The goal is to help the writer achieve the best possible version of their script, and of themselves as a writer.
