People keep asking us...

"How do I write a screenplay a reader will love?"

While our main focus is training readers, so many people have been asking us to help them write a screenplay that will get past a reader that we've decided to tackle this request. Let's start by debunking some myths! Many people have preconceived ideas about writing screenplays. Here are some answers to the most common misconceptions.

DEBUNKING MYTHS:  

  • MYTH: "No one will read your screenplay." TRUTH: Thousands of movies are made every year. Producers are constantly looking for the next big thing. Everyone loves it when a screenplays comes "out of nowhere."


  • MYTH: "You have to know somebody to get your work read." TRUTH: There are ways to get noticed and become a Hollywood insider, even if your dad isn't a producer. 99% of writers don't know anyone when they first start. 


  • MYTH: "You have to live in Los Angeles." TRUTH: Everything is online these days. Writing is portable!  
Yes! It's an actual job. You can make money as a reader!


 "The secret of getting ahead, is getting started."

Mark Twain

Have you always wanted to write a screenplay but....

  • You don't know where to begin to come up with ideas.


  • You're not sure how to go about formatting and /or stucturing a screenplay.


  • You've heard it's a waste of time to write a screenplay because nobody will want to read it. 


  • You just don't have the time and don't know where to start.  

 "If at first the idea is not absurd, than there is no hope for it." Albert Einstein  

There are many ways you can get started with writing and finishing your screenplay.

Trial and Error

You can jump in and start writing.... Then find out the mistakes you've made once you submit your screenplay for consideration.

Film School

You can pay thousands of dollars to go to film school. You'll learn a lot about filmmaking. And a little bit about being a reader.

Reading A Lot of Scripts

There are a lot of places to get scripts and then you can read and read and read to learn the basics.
