Welcome to the most radically innovative screenwriting course in our galaxy!
Bold claim? Hear me out.
Most screenwriting books and teachers put the cart before the horse. They show you an example of great screenwriting, and they say: write that.
What they don’t show you, is how to write it. Most of them don’t care if you write anything at all, ever.
In fact, what they teach you is how to analyse existing work. That’s useful for once you actually have work to analyse (because you will need to edit).
But first, you need a draft. And to get there, you need more than just analytical skills!
Having worked in the film and TV industry for over thirty-five years, here is what I believe to be your path to becoming a successful screenwriter:
- To learn to intuitively understand what a great script looks like.
- To develop the muscle memory to write in the correct format.
- To acquire the talent to translate ideas into the written word.
- To develop the analytical skills to edit and improve your work.
A multi-million dollar industry of screenwriting education products is built on just that last point.
They are all overlooking the first three.
You wonder why this is possible?
Because the fourth point is all about entertaining the brain. And it sells.
Perhaps you know the feeling: You read a book or attend a course, and you feel incredibly inspired, hell – you are enlightened!
You just feel that you can do it.
Many miserable months later, you have produced exactly zero screenplays.
You feel like a complete failure.
Don’t despair. You’re only one of hundreds of thousands of wannabe screenwriters who have experienced this!
Traditional screenwriting courses don’t work. And they won’t, ever.
In Immersion, we focus on the first 3 points above. And you’ll be surprised how easy this is, provided you do the right thing.
