The world around you is filled with stories waiting for discovery.

The world around you is filled with stories waiting for discovery.

Screenplays are just another vessel to hold your story...

Sometimes you envision a story you discover as a novel, sometimes a screenplay and rarely for me, a stage play.  They are all merely vessels - like a cup that holds your morning coffee.  Each has its own 'rules' or requirements. Don't fear that, but you will need to know the rules to fully realize your story idea.

I taught myself screenwriting after working in the film industry for years as a post and VFX coordinator.  I can teach you too if you're willing to commit the time to it.  Students around the world have learned screenwriting from my seminars and video course - and I think they've had fun doing it.

Here are a couple of my students offering their comments on my Screenwriting Essentials program.
