Goes to the Movies, went on to teach the Save the Cat weekend intensives in Los Angeles, and has been hired to write (and rewrite) screenplays, both original and adapted from other source material.

Most recently, Naomi created the “Idea to Outline” and “Finish Your Screenplay” workshops, and wrote and published Logline Shortcuts: Unlock your story and pitch your screenplay in one simple sentence, and The Screenplay Outline Workbook: A step-by-step guide to brainstorm ideas, structure your story, and prepare to write your best screenplay.
