“Gilda has proven her incredible and diverse abilities in the Film industry”
For almost a decade, Gilda has proven her incredible and diverse abilities in the Film industry. We began working on film projects at California State University, Northridge where Gilda took charge of production, casting actors and organizing permits. In addition to her powerful writing skills, she has an infectiously positive attitude that uplifts those working around her. A pleasure on any film/tv development or production!
“Few have stood out… Gilda Graham was able to raise the bar”
I’ve been a screenwriter since 2010 and have received dozens of reviews and feedback from consultants and writers alike. Few have stood out in precision and clarity with their notes, and Gilda Graham was able to raise the bar in both respects. With an eye for formatting and exceptional dialogue; her pragmatic approach proves useful for any writer wishing to grow.
“I highly recommend Gilda”
I found myself struggling for ideas that would bring realistic conflict and obstacles for my lead characters to overcome. Gilda prepared homework assignments that were designed to show me how other writers incorporated conflicts into their stories and to help me with character development. Gilda is just plain fun to work with and gives plot and character ideas and suggestions with such fresh enthusiasm that you leave each coaching session with renewed excitement and energy. I highly recommend Gilda as a writing coach, teacher, editor, and muse.
“would highly recommend her services ”
I was not disappointed. Not being a natural romantic, I had trouble with the developing relationship between the protagonists. She suggested some reading material and completing a “love circle” exercise that allowed me to heat up the budding relationship in a natural evolution. Gilda also helped in cleaning up unnecessary dialogue as well a couple of scenes that made the story drag. I feel the result is much crisper and has better pace as a result. I received excellent value for the money and would highly recommend her services to any writer wanting to improve the quality of their screenplay.
