  • I just wanted to let you know how pleased/impressed/encouraged/excited Sue and I are since meeting with Christian. He did a phenomenal job reviewing our script and making us understand the opportunities and challenges ahead. I have a renewed energy and belief to take the script from interesting/good to something exceptional. Christian was able to laugh with us, critically think with us and—quite simply—help us. It's a great service you're providing and I will talk it up to the writers and aspiring filmmakers in my network.--Eric V.
  • I just wanted to say how grateful I am for you! Our last session has opened up my eyes to so many new things. It's much easier to cut scenes now! I'm so happy.  Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!--Jasani D.
  • I am really proud of the horror script I wrote, Gifts, which has now reached the quarterfinals of the ScreenCraft Horror Screenplay Contest. I hope to see it made into a full feature one day. Shout out to Jacob Krueger Studio and Christian Lybrook for their awesome mentoring.-Josh K.
  • I just wanted to truly thank you for your help on IDA. It's been invaluable and I am still learning from you.--Dru M.
