You'll look at each aspect of the producer’s process from:

"ScreenCraft is an amazing organization." - James V. Hart, award-winning screenwriter of Hook (directed by Steven Spielberg), Dracula (directed by Francis Ford Coppola) and Contact (directed by Robert Zemeckis)
“ScreenCraft catapulted my career years ahead of even my most optimistic expectations. The contacts and — perhaps even more importantly — the legitimacy the Fellowship gave me has helped me land top tier representation and put me in a position to pitch projects to major studios.” – Robert Haffey
“The ScreenCraft Fellowship was a pivotal moment in my career as a writer. John and Cam made every effort to not only connect me with industry members, but to make sure that I received representation. It’s hard to imagine being nearly as confident in the future of my writing without the fellowship. I can’t thank ScreenCraft enough and I encourage any writer seeking reps to apply.” - Mark Stasenko
