Feedback for The Screenwriters Advanced Fundamentals Course 2017
‘Lucy is a ‘feet on the ground’ superwoman who has incredible recall of the minute details of thousands of films – amazing!’
Annabel Vine – Writer/Director
‘I have a renewed focus on the craft of writing – how it all connects and what I need to do to stand out on the spec pile. Lucy has a great knack of getting to the core of the issue and clearing up confusion’.
Ellie Rofe – Writer/Producer
‘Lucy makes the hard things sound easy, and she inspires confidence in fledgling writers. She is incredibly knowledgeable, accessible, enthusiastic and, most of all, supportive’.
Carmen Radtke – Writer
‘I feel I now have permission to tell the stories I want to tell while meeting industry expectations. I always take away at least one thing from any workshop – this weekend has given me multiple pointers I can immediately apply. I love how Lucy is to the point and doesn’t blow my mind with jargon; she always has great examples to illustrate her points’.
Jaye Nolan – Writer
‘Lucy V Hay; protagonist, mentor, Warrior Mum – she’ll crack open your skull, download screenwriting craft, then kick your backside to get on with it!’.
‘The use of vertical action writing made complete sense and I am employing this method immediately! With Lucy, what you see is what you get, no ‘arty farty’ bullshit, she tries to keep it simple because obviously we’re not all experts’.
Kevin Bolger – Writer
‘Lucy tells it like it is; not what you want to hear – full respect!’
Alan C Eddy – Writer/Shooter/Director
