Leah Estrin - A True Pro

Event review

THE PRO

The first thing you notice about Leah is she is a no-spin zone - the good kind.  Ask a question and she gives you a straight and honest answer.  It's a reflection of her years in the industry reading and evaluating scripts.  But more than that, it's a true reflection of an industry pro; someone who has seen what being disingenuous can lead to - unrealistic expectations and misunderstandings that becomes heartache and heartbreak as you try to navigate an industry (Hollywood) that you don't understand.

She does understand it oh so well.

The amazing thing about Leah is that this honesty can make some people sound cynical and mean-spirited and Leah is nothing of the sort.  She is open, always smiling, always ready to give someone a great tip.  That was abundantly clear at our event before, during and after.   (more after the jump - hit CONTINUED below)

Welcome!

Welcome to the new website for the
Orange Country Screenwriters Association!

A lot has changed, web-wise, since the 1st time I put up a website for this org in 2009. 

We've gone from a Flash-based site, to a Drupal-based site that was mostly custom-built, to now this platform.

I've migrated most of the articles over from the old site and this migration will be ongoing until the old site can be safely put to bed and this site given its due.

I hope that you will visit regularly and enjoy the content here.  I will also list all our social media and partner sites which include screenwriting classes, tips, etc.

Today as always: Be Inspired, Do Good Work!

Mark Sevi, President Orange County Screenwriters Association
