"I have been trying to get my bio together for years and had writer's block. I mostly knew what it needed to say but didn't know how to put it all together. Ilana took my bits and pieces and put the puzzle together beautifully, while fleshing out parts that I had neglected. If it wasn't for her, I'd still be staring at the note on my phone, trying (and failing) to solve that puzzle."

"Ilana's intelligent and organized approach to breaking down the credits I need to highlight made easy to trust her with writing a tedious bio, and focus on the art I love to make!"

"Ilana has a gift of hearing a person's vision for their project, career, and life goals, and then expanding it, focusing it and bringing it to life. She sees straight into the core of what is meaningful, and helps to shape it into something clear and powerful. With my bio, she highlighted my accomplishments while emphasizing my humanity and the drive behind them. She is thoughtful. And she works fast. I highly recommend hiring her for all of your creative needs."

"If you’re looking for someone to help you brainstorm marketing ideas for your film or series, Ilana is your girl! In a short amount of time she helped me break down my marketing goals into clear and focused steps. She helped me brainstorm specific groups to reach out to in order to achieve my exposure goals for my web series. She also helped me craft my email pitches. Thank you Ilana!"

“Ilana helped me feel more confident and inspired to move forward. She was friendly, professional and efficient. I gave her bits and pieces of information and she put it all together amazingly! She made me look good, when I didn't think it was possible. Highly recommend.”

"I commissioned Ilana Zackon to update my Acting and Playwriting resume, Author resume, and Filmmaking resume. She took the raw material of my old Multidisciplinary Artist resume and created 3 polished professional resumes which truly reflect the best qualities and strengths of my career as a multidisciplinary artist. If you are looking for a professional profile as an actor, author, filmmaker, or artist, I highly recommend Ilana’s excellent skill and services as a first-rate copywriter for the entertainment industry.
