John Darbonne went from student to professional script reader after just one class! John says, “After taking Barney Lichtenstein’s script reader course at UCLA Extension, I was able to become a volunteer reader at the Austin Film Festival. From there, the Los Angeles International Film Festival hired me as a paid reader. This experience has helped my screenwriting immensely.”
Of his experience with the Writers’ Program he says, “UCLA Extension online classes are structured to be easy to access, and their instructors have experience beyond the academic setting. Barney Lichtenstein gave us real-world insight into being a script reader that I hadn’t found in any previous course.”
