As an expert in media references in everyday conversation, I consult on a variety of media projects. I provide dialect and conversation coaching for film and TV shows with a focus on accurate and meaningful representation. I also advise on realistic dialogue in script-writing. Additionally, I consult on ‘catch phrases’ in film, TV, and advertising, as an expert on what makes a word or phrase “quotable.”

To inquire about consulting services and rates, you can reach me via email. Sylvia A Sierra (no spaces!) at gmail dot com.

‪“[Orson] Welles used techniques from radio like overlapping dialogue…a number of voices, each saying a sentence or sometimes merely a fragment of a sentence, and splicing the dialogue together in quick succession…” -Cook, David A. (2016). A History of Narrative Film, 5th edition. New York: W. W. Norton & Company.
