"Kathryn's course is a must for any newbie. It's a fast, furious and funny two days - I can't wait to get started on my first feature."  Eryn Wilson - Actor/Writer/Director

"Having attended two of Kathryn's workshops now, they have provided me with a great understanding of screenplay structure, and tools to work through issues when I get stuck, which has been very helpful, not only for my own writing, but also assessing scripts that I am given to read which I may get to shoot ." - Kirk Pflaum, Director of Photography

"Fantastic array of information. It's so helpful to get to look "under the bonnet" of a film and see all the moving parts. This will save hours of time in avoiding the pitfalls." Cindy Mullins – Publishing Agent
