When a film or publishing insider reads your material, you want their response to be WOW!

Unlike a baseball game, when you get up to bat with your script, the competition is so great that you only get one swing to hit a home run. Just one strike, and you're out!

Your family and friends may think your script is terrific, and it might be. However, they probably don't have the knowledge or keen eye of an experienced, industry professional who has worked for decades in the film industry. Whether you are a first-time hopeful or a seasoned, produced or published writer, you will benefit greatly from the input of an industry insider who has a long and winning record of working with writers to develop their material and maximize their opportunities for success. What you need is help to hone your project into a highly professional, well-executed, "polished-to-perfection"… WOW!

I'm here to help you hit that home run.

I earned a B.A. Degree in English Literature and a teaching credential from Montclair University, and taught high school English. Subsequently, I furthered my education at UCLA where I received additional academic credits in film and creative writing.

Early in my professional career, I assisted a number of top production and development executives at Paramount Pictures and in a short span of time became a development executive in the television divisions of Paramount and later Universal. Following my studio years, I founded and operated for twenty years, Stephanie Rogers & Associates, a literary agency, representing writers, directors and producers. In 2000, the agency was re-structured to a management and film consulting firm. Over the years as an agent, my clients have developed, written, directed, produced and worked on countless theatrical, cable and television motion pictures, cable and TV series and TV specials for which a number of them have received and been nominated for Oscars, Emmys, Writers Guild, Image , the Humanitas, Western Spur and Tony Awards.

I have also lectured on screenwriting, marketing of scripts and the business end of writing for films and TV at USC Film School, UCLA, Cal State Northridge, Moorpark College and Ventura County Writers' Association.

"Stephanie has been my critical eye for eighteen years now, the most savvy story person I know. She is part critic, part teacher, part saint, I swear. More than once, as she wades through something of mine, I feel I have a skilled writing partner working out there to find the holes, putting her finger on the critical faults or vagaries whether it be of character, plot-line or theme. The big stuff, the details. Especially the details. Always coming up with possible solutions I would never have thought of in a year. And, aware all the while of the realities in a fast evolving marketplace."
