- Keatyn Lee pays attention to the extremely fine details and provides in depth feedback that has only made my screenplay stronger. Working with her is the quickest I have ever completed a solid first draft. - Sujay P.
- I was paired with Keatyn Lee, my writing mentor, well over a year ago, as the best fit for my genres. I have worked with her biweekly in that time. I frankly wasn’t sure what to expect, but I’ll tell you what I got: a warm and willing listener, an astute and clever advisor, and an insightful reader. I always leave her room at JK Studios, uplifted, revived, excited and, dare I say it, invincible. I think I’d probably have “cheaped out” and not gone the ProTrack route had it not been for my desperate need for new eyes that I could trust. It’s the best money I’ve spent on myself. I’ve transformed my ho-hum average scripts into compelling content that is being accepted into festivals worldwide. I had no idea what I didn’t know! While you’re sitting on the fence, someone else is in a room at JK Studios, in your chair, writing a brilliant screenplay.--Page Cooper A.
- Keatyn is a fantastic mentor. She looks at my script to find where we can work and points out what she enjoyed. I look forward to our bi-weekly meeting because Keatyn has helped me to keep on writing and not give up, and provide me with such guidance to navigate this industry.--Erin O.
- Keatyn is always positive when I am negative about my writing or ideas. She takes my ideas and shows me a way to expand them into something that really works.--Herschel M.
- I came into the class with pretty serious writers' block and the need for a new approach. Keatyn's class busted my blocks wide open and get me inspired. Whether you're an experienced writer or a beginner, this class will be extremely valuable.--Andrew N.
- Working with Keatyn was wonderful! She really motivated me to develop my script by offering practical tools, and advice based on her industry experience. As an actor primarily, I feel comfortable with character and dialogue, but Keatyn really provided the overall script structure that I was seeking to learn. I definitely recommend taking her class!--Lauren S.
