This user-friendly, cutting edge workshop teaches the seven essential elements of successful screenplays:

  • The Hero,
  • Hero’s Flaw,
  • Hero’s Ally,
  • Opponent,
  • Life-Changing Event,
  • Enabling Circumstances, and
  • Jeopardy.

 

Rob uses his highly informative and entertaining style to explore and explain terms and concepts not discussed in even the most celebrated screenwriting workshops.

It is essential to not just use these essential elements in your screenplays, but to create the correct relationship between them. Just as walls, floors and ceilings must be in correct relationship to each other to form a house, these essential elements must be in correct relationship to each other to create an exciting, structurally sound, and commercially viable story.

“The difference between a waiter and a writer is a single letter and a million words,” Rob often says. “But simply writing a million words will do you no good unless you know how to structure your story, how to identify the building blocks and how to use them. Otherwise you might as well be writing a telephone book.”

Having read more than 5,000 screenplays, Rob’s encountered more than his share of “telephone books” and is anxious to help you make your screenplay the best it can be.
