You have a great idea for a movie and you want to learn how to write a professional screenplay but...

Has this ever happened to you?

  • You don’t know where to begin.
  • You don’t know if the idea is any good.
  • You’ve never written any kind of story before let alone a screenplay. 
  • You don’t have the time to learn everything there is to know about writing a screenplay.
  • You’re afraid of being judged by family, friends, or anyone in case you write something bad. 
  • Worst of all, you don’t believe you can do it. Maybe you’re afraid or lack confidence because you don’t have the necessary writing or storytelling skills to write a great screenplay.


So how can you overcome these obstacles?

Student Experience

Screenplay Crash Course

“I had an idea for a story but I wasn’t sure how to flesh it out. I found the information in the Screenplay Crash Course about developing characters, plot and story structure to be incredibly useful. There was no talk about unnecessary details, it was all straight to the point, lesson after lesson. It allowed me to actually write my screenplay while watching each lesson. Really enjoyed the course!”

The simple truth...

The best writers in the world who ended up writing some of the greatest stories and movies of all-time started from humble beginnings. They started without any prior knowledge of storytelling or screenwriting. 

So how did they become such great writers? How did they overcome their fears and lack of confidence?

Simple. They just started writing one day. One word at a time, one day at a time, one step at a time. Every day, they got better and better at their craft.

But the KEY is that you have to START.

It doesn’t matter where you are today, you just have to start and begin writing that amazing idea you have and learn how to turn it into a masterpiece.

So what if...

  • You can begin writing your dream screenplay with absolute confidence today? And…
  • You can write a great screenplay without any prior knowledge of writing a story or screenplay before? And…
  • You can learn the key fundamentals that all great stories and screenplay’s rely on quickly and easily? And…
  • You can write a great screenplay that you would be proud to share with family, friends? And…
  • What if, your screenplay impacts the lives of millions across the world with your amazing story?


How would that make you feel?

Follow a Proven Story Structure and Screenplay Format

Before you write your screenplay, you need to understand the storytelling fundamentals that have been around for thousands of years. Your story should follow these basic storytelling principles that anyone who has ever read a story or watched a movie can relate to and understand. Most of your favorite movies and stories follow these storytelling fundamentals in order to write a compelling and captivating story.

Once you have the basic structure of your story down, you can begin writing your screenplay using the correct screenplay format. Every screenplay follows a specific format and structure so it can be adapted into a feature film.

Your #1 goal should be to simply write your screenplay from beginning to end by following a proven story structure and screenplay format.

You want to build your confidence that you have the ability to write a great story and screenplay that will help you further develop your screenplay into something extraordinary. Something you would be proud to share with the world.

Allow me to be blunt...

Without following the fundamentals of story structure, that amazing idea you have won’t make sense to anyone. Your story will be all over the place, confusing readers and audiences, leaving them with a negative impression. I’m pretty sure, that’s not the goal you have in mind. You want to blow people away with your amazing story!

Without following the correct screenplay format, no one will read your screenplay because your story wasn’t correctly adapted into a movie. A screenplay needs to be written in a specific format designed to be seen on a screen with beautiful imagery and sound.

  • Isn't this just a formula? Won't this just make me write cliche boring stories?

    Screenplay Crash Course is built on thousands of years of storytelling. All stories have a form/structure. Buildings have a form/structure too, they have foundational elements that they all share. But it doesn’t mean all buildings have to look alike because they were built with the same foundation. Look around you and see all the different architecture, they were all built with a tried-and-true foundational method to building a house. The same is true with storytelling. A formula is simply a recipe that you can eventually manipulate and begin concocting your own unique formula or recipe. Following a formula does not limit your imagination, in fact, it will expand it. Because you don’t need to focus on the formula, it’s there, you trust it because its been proven time and time again. So, you are free to go the ends of your imagination and construct a unique story that follows a winning formula.
