My name is Mary Hackett, but my pen name is Rene Collier. All my works are under my pen name.
I live in Los Angeles, CA and participate in the wonderful world of films outside the main arena. I was a script reader for Joel Silver (Silver Pictures) and still do a bit of script doctoring for my friends who need a script punch up.
I do write - short stories, plays, screenplays (both feature and short) and have written a few TV episodes.
I enter contests and hope for the best. I have come close to selling one script. It is still in 'consideration' at a major studio.
I take screenwriting classes on line and go to writing conventions here in Los Angeles - always improving my craft.
I am proficient at screen writing (Movie Magic software). I know the proper formats and how to put all the elements into play. My son is a director, so I see things from the director's point of view. My son's friend is a DP, so I understand what can and can't be in a scene/shot based on budget. I am learning script breakdown, which will only prove to enhance my writing.
So, what can I do for you? Help you organize your ideas, for one. Read your script as a script reader - making suggestions as needed, Actually script doctor the parts that need to become solid.
I don't want to write your script. At this time I am writing three scripts. One for myself and two for other who are getting ready to shoot. But, I will look at anything you or someone else you have write for you as a third pair of eyes.
