Sign Up For My London or Hong Kong Class!

In the UK or Hong Kong? Want to attend my big 2 day class?

SCRIPT SECRETS: LONDON - October 10 & 11, 2009 - BIG IDEA class, using GHOST as our primary example we will start by finding the million dollar high concept idea and then find the perfect story and characters for the idea. SIGN UP NOW! Seating is limited!

SCRIPT SECRETS: THE BIG IDEA is an INTENSIVE two day course - screenwriting stripped of the theoretical nonsense! This is the "classic class" - starting with finding that great film idea than explanding that idea into a full length screenplay. We'll spend all day Saturday and Sunday learning techniques to come up with great film ideas, improve your dialogue, description, story and screenwriting abilities! Plus a section on selling your script!

SCRIPT SECRETS - The big 2 day class is totally revamped for 2009 & 2010.

Now with The Thematic - the most powerful screenwriting tool I've ever created! A schematic using theme to flesh out your screenplay. Start with a story idea or a character, and it will take you step-by-step, finding the perfect supporting characters, amazing dramatic scenes, dialogue that works on more than one level, actions that show emotional conflict, and more. Thematic uses your story's theme to generate the other elements of the story, creating the template for a tightly focused character and theme based screenplay. This is not a machine or a formula, but a unique way to look at writing your screenplay.

For 2009 we'll be using the movie GHOST as our primary example, with clips from that film as well as NORTH BY NORTHWEST, THE MATRIX, AIRPLANE, THE BIG SLEEP and DILLINGER.

Bill the whole Themematic thing sounds totally awesome. I wish that I was going to be in London but, I live in Arizona, so no dice. Any chance you'll do it as a CD workshop? Anyway, hope you have a blast at Raindance.

I thought this was a parody when I started reading it, and then got depressed when I realized you were being serious.
You're the PT Barum of Screenwriting gurus.
