    Good afternoon Elliot,

    Just a quick note to thank you for the recommendation of
    Julia Verdin as a one to one mentor.

    Julia is a complete professional with a wonderful eye to detail and script suggestions. Her in depth fourteen page analysis has pointed me in the right direction to complete the final trimming and polishing of the script.

    One of the hardest things for a writer is the appraisal. Julia manages to dissect a script and yet leave you with a warm feeling. This is no doubt fabulous value for money. I now feel regenerated and ready for the final re-write.

    To any aspiring writer. If you feel your script is ready, then have faith In yourself and mentor Julia, she has the abilities to make a good script Great.

    Many thanks

    Chris Trowell
