Reviews

Praise for Pilar Alessandra and The Coffee Break Screenwriter

"This book teaches you how to turn a brilliant idea into a tangible product. Whenever I sit down to write something substantial, I refer to my crumpled-up, old Pilar notes."

--Ben Mekler, head writer, Nerdist Industries

"Pilar Alessandra's screenwriting techniques are among the most valuable I've ever come across. She takes a systematic approach to every step of the process, carefully guiding the writer from concept to final draft."

--Chris Sparling, writer, Buried

"Writing a screenplay can be like waging a war. It's you versus the blank page. This book is like a strategic field guide about the art of war, so keep it handy the next time you type FADE IN."

--Jeff Portnoy, literary manager, Bellevue Productions; former head of story at Resolution Talent Agency and staff reader at Creative Artists Agency
