How To Give Yourself the Best Possible Chance at Screenwriting Success

What if most of what’s being taught about screenwriting is wrong? What if the rules, paradigms and secrets widely touted in books, seminars and classes not only don’t improve your chances of making it, but could actually sabotage you?

And what if there were specific skill sets nobody talks about that could dramatically boost your chance for success?

Join this webinar to learn the five main reasons people fail at screenwriting and to come away with specific insights and hands-on tools that can help give you the best possible shot at success. Perfect for experienced screenwriters as well as beginners.

During this informative webinar, he will cover topics screenwriters need to know like:

·       What is required to launch a career
·       Why most scripts fall apart in the middle and how to avoid it
·       The power of the unifying principle
·       How to get the reader to want to keep reading
·       Organic character driven narration
·       How to avoid the five traps that sink most scripts
·       How professionals rewrite their scripts
·       Why story structure formulas don’t work
·       Creative integration of the conceptual and intuitive approaches
·       How to get an agent or manager
·       Tools to stop procrastination
