Jessica Bendinger, the writer of hit movies including "Bring it On" and "Stick It," has joined with fellow writers to launch a series of YouTube videos and a website called aworkingwriter.com. The series also includes video interview with writers such as Michael Seitzman ("North Country) and Jack Kenny ("The Book of Daniel").

Jessica's video is just one of dozens to be included in the project and rolled out over the next several days. For more information on the campaign or to see more video interviews, go to aworkingwriter.com.
