'Screenwriting can't be taught, but it can be learnt.'
OK. So what does that mean? It means that while a screenwriting teacher or mentor can give a screenwriting student the basics, it's up to the screenwriting student to practice those basics until they become instinctive. Until they become a kind of 'screenwriting muscle memory', whereby a screenwriter can write a script intuitively, without having to consciously apply all that good stuff that screenwriting teachers try to teach. It's subtle.
I know that when an aspiring screenwriter or film script writing student reads something like John Truby's 'The Anatomy of Story' or Robert McKee's 'Story', it can seem very complicated. And that can be discouraging. I can help you through the minefield of what people like this teach, and help you apply it to your screenwriting.
In truth, it isn't that complicated. But you must have been born to write film scripts. You must have a natural aptitude for storytelling. And the willingness to work hard.
To find out how my screenwriting mentoring works and how much it will cost, please get in touch. I can take you from beginner through to capable screenwriter. Talk soon then.
