Producer and script consultant in Los Angeles, California

About Regina

I have supervised or am currently producing film and TV projects for Universal Pictures, 20th Century Fox Film, FBC (Fox TV network), 20th TV (TV studio), New Regency Productions, New Line Cinema, Summit Entertainment, MRC Film, Lionsgate Digital, HBO, Starz, CBS, The CW, Sony TV, and Paramount TV, as well as for independent financiers. I'm developing a pilot for BET and just produced my first TV movie.

In addition to producing, I consult on script/story and the current marketplace, and I'm proud to say I've helped 2 indie movies get made. As a consultant, I've also helped international filmmakers secure development funding and reputable US agency representation and management.

I volunteer as the Board member for the CineStory Foundation (CineStory.org), a nonprofit educational screenwriting institute which runs a screenplay contest and writers' retreats, mentored by Hollywood pros who volunteer our time. I've been a guest speaker for the UCLA Producers Program, USC Movie Business Seminar, and an NYU Alumni screenwriting panel. I was invited to represent Universal Pictures at the Tribeca Film Institute's Tribeca All Access.

I also volunteer on the Advisory Board of a female-run production company called Arcadia, based in Sydney, Australia.

SCRIPT CONSULTING - I can provide rates for your consideration. I will also provide clients with a draft of a contract that protects both you and me.

AS A PRODUCER, I cannot accept unsolicited submissions. Please note that I have to follow standard industry submissions guidelines. If you send me any material unsolicited, it will be permanently deleted UNREAD. This policy is in place to protect both you and me. I will not be able to read it or click on the links of story material. Why is this standard policy in Hollywood? Because of potential "you stole my idea" lawsuits. It's really too bad that exposure to "you stole my idea" accusations has led to a "closed door" policy that is hard (but not impossible!) to break through. The good news is that there are very legitimate ways to break through the closed door, like winning screenwriting contests and pitch fests, and querying those agents and managers who do accept unsolicited submissions. Thank you for understanding.
