I'm a professional screenwriter. I've written on both cable and network dramas. And I've sold a feature. I graduated from Film School / Dramatic Writing nine years ago. I'm in the Writers Guild, and have the trifecta of representation. And I've also self-published two collections of one-act plays available on all e-reader platforms.

I'm happy to do consultations on projects you are looking to rewrite or submit to contests. Or if you are just starting out on something new and wants to talk through all the story beats and track it together before you begin a draft.

I can also recommend the best books to read on both the craft and the industry, as well as screenplays and pilots to read (and which ones to avoid).

Learn how to navigate not only the business and landing that first job, but also how to develop a project with a production company, and participate/conduct yourself properly in a TV writer's room.

Graduated New York University's Tisch School of the Arts in 2007. Majored in Dramatic Writing and minored in English

Adam is a really great listener and excellent source of thought provoking, well timed input that has really helped me develop and improve my story organically without changing its intention with strong suggestions as most people's feedback often attempts to do. If you're looking for a hand in finding your own voice and to strengthen your writing skills or excellent constructive feedback for your story then look no further.
David
Adam Gaines is a godsend. I was really lucky to have his guidance over the years which helped my craft and dedication to the art of writing greatly. He is a proven writer with legitimate credits but also, he actually cares. He is always ready to help and takes your material seriously which is most important when you want honest feedback and guidance. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of films, screenwriting, and the industry that is both impressive and beneficial. He is a wonderful friend and mentor who will always have a great recommendation or suggestion ready for your work and/or career. Adam is an extremely open individual with an immense passion for film and the craft of screenwriting which becomes infectious. That trait is crucial since it keeps you driven to keep learning and grow. He is also an excellent conversationalist with his own voice which is truly refreshing. Highly recommend.

Adam gives you insightful comments on how to make you a better writer. He knows what good dialogue sounds like and with a couple suggestions you instantly know how to re-work your writing to give it a natural flow.

I am a director who has made more than 700 television commercials, including three spots for the Superbowl I have won numerous award at Cannes, Clios, and AICP Awards. My skills are in acting for TV commercials, and preparing for auditions. A commercial script is not very obvious. I can help an actor to reveal wha is in the script and how to prepare the role for an audition. After twenty-five years makin ads, I can also offer advice about how to handle an audition, and the protocols for the director and ad agency once in the room. Defining what is essential for a audition for tv commercials--creating a character, varying interpretations, and the understanding of what is expected from the actor are all things I can help you with.

My pride is directing performance-based drama worked out in hundreds of commercials I’ve directed for leading agencies in North America and abroad. Starting with the BBC for eight years as a documentary filmmaker, I favor careful observational, casting, and performance to mine the subtleties of hum

Steven was just awesome! He's so positive and fun. He's super patient, and his way of teaching is very clear. He follows the pace my wife and I wanted, and tailored what we learned to what we liked. We didn't know what we would like, but he helped us figure that out too! I highly recommend Steven.

We’ve only done our first class but Steve has done a great job of going at a pace to match our learning and explained the steps very well. We’re very excited to keep dancing with him!

"It's an amazing feeling when you find someone who is a master at the craft and can teach it too!

Shauna's previous extensive theatre training and instruction is UNDENIABLE. Because of this, she brings much more to the table than the average acting coach.

She made me realize there's SO much more than just breaking down a scene and creating a character. She made me think about where the character is going physically as well as emotionally, and why. I continue to grow and improve with each lesson with her. I'm so lucky to have found Shauna, and strongly recommend her to all actors."

How important is it for aspiring actors to hire an acting coach? Find out in this guest post by New York, NY acting teacher Stephanie B...
