WRITING THE CINEMATIC NOVEL Series

It is a lifelong dream of most novelists to have their novel made into a feature film.   In fact, more than 80% of all movies made today are based on novels and other source materials. 

But did you know that you can greatly increase your odds of making that sale to Hollywood simply by understanding what makes a great adaptation.  Many writers today- like John Le Carre, Dan Brown, Michael Crichton, and others - write in such a way as to grab the attention of directors, actors, producers and major film studios with each new work. They write stories meant for this world-wide audience . . .

. . . and you can too!

I created this course based on my years as a story consultant and writing teacher.  I’m lucky enough to stand at the intersection of these two worlds – I train both screenwriters and novelists - and understand the skills and techniques common to both. And more importantly, we know that, while a novel can reach thousands, successful films are able to reach millions -  and one successful book made into a hit movie, such as Andrew Weir’s The Martian, can give a writer a very successful career.

The 6-week class includes such topics as:

·         What do a great book and a great movie have in common
·         The Novelist’s Guide to Basic Screenwriting
·         The Foundation of it all – The Story
·         Perfecting your cinematic premise
·         Film Story Structure
·         Writing Characters that live on the screen
·         Theme and The Secret to the Narrative Question
·         Understanding The Audience’s Journey
·         The Location/Setting as Characters
·         Pacing
·         How to GRAB THEM and HOLD THEM
·         How to Write Winning Scenes

The class includes weekly audios videos and a workbook to put your ideas and techniques into practice. You can listen to the talks and watch the videos at your leisure on any tablet, smartphone or computer at any time – forever!

The class also includes its own Facebook Group and conference calls where all students can get together and discuss the work.
