Joy Cheriel Brown showed me that the most important component of a film is the script. If you don't have that foundation that glues the audience to the screen, then the whole project will be flat. Since working with Joy, I have created 5 short films. One of them, Malpractice,  won the Pink Flamingo award at the Ocean City Film Festival. If you want that grip on storytelling that is essential for every filmmaker, then I highly recommend being coached by Joy.-- Wayne Hill, Jr. 

Joy taught me how to entertain the audience-- through screenwriting-- with the proper dramatic tools.-- Julius Schenck
