D.B. Gilles's Courses
Screenwriting New York (Starts June 10)
"I wrote a play that was produced half a dozen times as a staged reading. D.B. took it from that point to a screenplay. I can't imagine a better way to get a script finished." -- John Tepper Marlin
"D.B. creates a focused environment that allows you to trust your instincts. He helps get those words on the page so that all you need to do is go back and make it better." -- James Babbin, Austin Film Festival quarterfinalist
"D.B. is one of the most brilliant, articulate, and helpful screenwriters out there. When he reads a scene, he finds not only what's in the script but what's swimming around in the writer's mind." -- Pia Sawhney
"D.B. is excellent. If you want insightful comments, constructive criticism, and a completed script in 12 weeks, he's your man." -- Jessica Caldwell
