I'm thrilled to introduce longtime development executive and literary manager Rhonda Bloom!
I remember the first set of notes I got from Rhonda. They were laser-like in their precision. They were so clear as to be bracing. And yet she gave them to me with a light touch and a sense of humor.
She told me some hard stuff about my script. But I absolutely loved hearing it from her. I remember laughing throughout the call.
So, when Rhonda recently expressed an interest in opening her doors to development clients, I was thrilled to introduce her to you all, my coaching clients!
Rhonda comes to her work as script consultant with literally decades of experience. She's watched thousands of movies and television shows. She's read tens of thousands of scripts. She's developed and sold dozens of projects. She's managed writers and directors for thirteen years.
So when you get notes from her, you're getting all of that experience and wisdom brought to bear on your idea-- on making your idea or your script as good as it can get.
She's worked with rank beginners all the way up the likes of David Mamet. She's a great listener and always approaches scripts with a constructive, solution-oriented attitude.
Simply put: if your script or idea needs developing, she'll help you take it to the next level!
Sounds great! Can you tell me more about Rhonda?
