Susan Eileen Jizba, Screenwriter

I’m getting back in the game. 

I started off at UCLA Extension in the Screenwriting Program. After some success and industry interest, I decided to explore other forms of writing, until recently returning to what I love most: Screenwriting.   

My newest feature is THE PORTRAIT: 

TITLE:      THE PORTRAIT

FORMAT:          Feature | Supernatural Romantic Mystery

LOGLINE:          When a talented artist with psychic gifts is commissioned to paint the portrait of a skeptical British antique art dealer at his country manor, she must unravel the dangerous mystery of her own tragic past life in order to rediscover the love she lost and the home where she truly belongs.

WRITER’S LOGLINE – SUSAN EILEEN JIZBA 

I write stories that are often overlooked by History and by Hollywood: stories told from an authentic female perspective. Simply changing a male character to female by – “putting boobs on it” – doesn’t work for me.

I’m a truth seeker, a rebel, a humanist and an optimist.  Despite the past, I believe in the future.

In the end, I believe, love will always win.
