There’s a joke that says everyone in Hollywood has an idea for a screenplay.
That joke deserves a rewrite. Because everybody everywhere has an idea for a screenplay.
Few get their ideas out of their head and onto paper.
You know what?
They don’t know how to structure it.
Enter Jill Chamberlain, best-selling Author of the screenwriting bible, “The Nutshell Technique.”
Jill analyzed hundreds of films and came up with a formula that not only stress tests the story you have, but makes the writing easier. And it works. It goes deeper than other ‘formulas’ to make sure your screenplay does not end up as a cliche . . . and in the “round file.”
And since my goal has always been to help TheaterMakers like you reach your goals, faster than you can on your own, The TheaterMakers Studio hired Jill to teach an exclusive virtual seminar on her trademarked technique!
The Zoom seminar (but don’t worry – you won’t have to show your face) is scheduled for Wednesday, March 10th at 7 PM EST. Click here to sign up.
If you’ve ever thought you had an idea for a movie . . . or maybe you started one and got stuck in the middle of Act II . . . or maybe you finished one but haven’t sold it yet (or even gotten an agent to read it!) . . . this seminar is for you.
Jill works with novice writers AND award-winning writers most of who she can’t name!
But it’s why the Academy Award-winning author of Parasite said . . .
“Jill Chamberlain sets a new standard for plotting stories. Use the Nutshell Technique to crack your story!”
And why the Producer of the last Star Wars (!) movie said . . .
“Jill Chamberlain’s Nutshell Technique is like the Rosetta Stone: it cracks the code behind why we love the movies that we love. It goes way beyond tired old beat sheet formulas and instead guides you to organically write the story you want to tell.”
(I hired Jill myself for a private session – and she solved a story problem I had for a screenplay AND a musical in 15 minutes.
And what better time to get that screenplay out of your head and onto a page? While the theater is on pause, this is a perfect time to diversify your portfolio . . . or just start one.
Register here. And if you’re a TheaterMakers Studio member, you save a bundle.
In the seminar, you’ll learn . . .
- The eight linked elements required to successfully tell a story and not just present a situation
- How the protagonist’s central flaw is the single best writing tool you’re not utilizing
- How to find that “inevitable yet unexpected” ending that both surprises and satisfies audiences
- And two of the participants will be able to go “Live” with Jill and have her “crack the nut” of their story during the seminar.
The rest of us can watch. 🙂
So if you’ve ever had an idea for the movies to write, produce, direct . . . sign up today.
If it doesn’t inspire you to get to work . . . and if it doesn’t help you write faster and better, let us know. I’ll personally guarantee it.
It’s one week from tonight . . . and e-seats are limited. (Sorry, but that was my deal with Jill!)
