Dr. Alex Ross Script Editor and Mentor

Do the best screenwriters make it? Some do, but most don’t. Why?

Because they don’t know the tricks of the trade. I have spent over 20 years in the industry and know every trick, including how to stand out from the rest and get on the decision-maker’s desk.

I recently had 8 agents offer to represent me on a project. If you are serious as a screenwriter, I am serious about making you succeed and can significantly increase your chances of success.

About Me

Over twenty years in the Hollywood film industry working with and for the studios as agent, manager, and producer. I ran close to 7000 pitch meetings, most with the studio heads of production. Worked with several Academy nominees and discovered two.

​One of the very few film industry professionals with a research background.  I recently completed a Ph.D. looking at how production companies turn their scripts into blockbusters. Eight years of research, interviewing hundreds of filmmakers. If I cannot make you succeed, no one can.

I am a member of the British Film Academy (BAFTA) as well as an expert consultant to the European Union’s EACA program, which I advise on which film projects to invest in.
