At my core, I am a storyteller and I believe in the power of human connection to make a positive impact on society. With expertise in film acquisitions and co-productions, I am able to provide development and production consultation to bridge creative and business together. That's how we tell great stories that meet market demands and the ever-changing landscape.
I am also a screenwriter and producer, and was selected to be part of the Producer's Guild Power of Diversity Workshop in 2019 with my kids' pilot "Identity Crisis of a Banana." The pilot is currently optioned and being read by major platforms. In 2021 I worked as a writer and script consultant on a kids series for Netflix which will likely be released in 2022, and have a few other features and series in development.
My knowledge of story requirements along with my distribution background allows me to provide notes that help you write a marketable and authentic script. For consultation on your project, please contact me.

"Justine's knowledge of the industry, deep understanding of storytelling, and her clear eye for character development makes her an invaluable resource for me. She's my go-to for every new script I write and I don't know what I'd do without her intelligent and thoughtful notes!" - Erin W.
"I first discovered Justine’s many types of expertise in a webinar she taught on developing movies for cable and streaming services. In that webinar I was drawn to her wide knowledge of distribution and marketing on one hand, and creative script development on the other. Her background and education— including law school, several languages, and extensive experience at Marvista Entertainment— led me to seek her out for individual consultation on scripts of mine that would benefit from her expertise.
In that further work, I continued to value Justine’s knowledge and point of view but also— and equally— her warmth and generosity of spirit. She is a very positive person who demonstrates and practices creative development. Thank you, Justine." -Virginia Y.
"I need a second set of eyes on my work and Justine is a great resource. She knows story and her notes are clear and easy to execute. I’ve used Justine several times to edit, give notes on story, and make sure I have the beats my characters need. She knows the film industry and is a great resource. Justine is a breath of fresh air. Honest with her notes in a kind way, I trust her knowledge of story, characters, writing, and the industry." -Betty S.
