What people say

Here's what people are saying about Heidi Stangeland.

 

"It took me a year before finally reaching out to Heidi about my film. I then spent the next week wondering why the hell I ever waited so long. Whether your script needs a sledgehammer or a scalpel, Heidi's tools are sharp, quick, purpose made and handled with mastery. If you've hit a wall, Heidi will find the door."

Colin Cunningham - Actor/Producer/Writer

 

 

"Heidi is everything we wish for in a screenwriter, she does the necessary research, writes the script, and able to think like a producer... now that is something you usually don't get. She understands that there are necessary changes and needs to get the project going and she does those without sacrificing the overall message of the screenplay."

"Heidi has the ability to pull you into the world of her screenplay within the first page of reading it. Every time we agree on an exchange I get excited - because I know I'll be reading an excellently crafted story. Her characters will jump from the page. I'll experience nail-biting suspense and the mysteries will be enough to drive my brain into a knot as I'll try to figure it all out. Gripping and extravagantly entertaining. Heidi is surely one of my go-to story experts when I need some valuable feedback on my written work I'd recommend Heidi to any team who wants to create captivating stories, write witty dialogue, design intriguing characters and ultimately craft an entertaining and sellable concept."

"Heidi Stangeland possesses a keen eye for the mechanics and substance of creative writing. She knows what works and what doesn't. Moreover, she's not afraid to lay it out and tell you. If you are searching for a teacher and coaching mentor, Heidi is my best recommendation. She cuts to the quick with insightful, concise feedback that allows you to expand the depth and purpose of your own words. Heidi is the perfect guide. She doesn't rewrite, she imparts the skills and confidence necessary for you to develop into your best writer."
