Sincerest thanks for your wisdom and light these six weeks. I've learned so much that I've already put into regular practice and my craft is all the better for it.
Linda, I’ve been wanting to tell you for quite some time now. I think you’re a fabulous teacher (the bee's knees). You have a unique style and what comes through most of all is your generous, nurturing, and wise instruction. It's a massive gift and I feel so lucky to know you and be your student. I've learned so much! Your kind words and notes have left me with a great deal of encouragement and fuel to keep working on the craft! My very best and warmest gratitude to you! -- Bruce S.
The best "how to screenwrite" class I've found yet. I've spent the past two years studying, full-time, everything that I could find and you presented ideas in class (such as visual specificity) that I haven't encountered anywhere else. -- Quentin E.
I tremendously enjoyed the seven act structure emphasis! Jake is fabulous! -- Assita C.
Take this class! If you seriously want to write a screenplay, you need to take Jake’s class! -- LR
Jake is great! Very charismatic and knowledgeable. He’s extremely helpful at dispelling the myths about the industry; his humor shows his love of this medium and how much he loves teaching. -- James H.
