A Note from Jeff
The entertainment industry is a tough nut to crack. The good news is that people everywhere have great ideas, and anyone, anywhere, can sell a script if it’s well written. All you need is the time, talent, discipline, confidence, passion, and hopefully the knowledge and skills to make it happen. The bad news is that a big percentage of people with great ideas also insist that the rules don’t apply to them, are paralyzed by procrastination, and refuse to get out of their own way. Not exactly a formula for success.
My promise: If you take my class, pay attention, apply my techniques, follow my advice, and stick to a common sense game plan, you can get it right the first time around.

WHAT DO THESE INDUSTRY GIANTS HAVE IN COMMON?
JEFF SCHIMMEL HAS WRITTEN/PRODUCED FOR ALL OF THEM — AND MANY MORE.
Jeff has been a working Writer/Producer in L.A. for 30 years, and has been teaching his unique, intensive seminars in cities around the country since 2004. If you've ever wanted to become a professional screenwriter, Jeff's fun, informative courses were created with you in mind. Imagine a fast-paced weekend where writers receive a complete education in writing all genres of TV and film, including story structure, character development, dialogue, and perhaps the most crucial skill for any writer—creating the indispensable, killer outline.
Students who attend our basic weekend courses will spend eight hours each day, both Saturday and Sunday, learning the nuts and bolts of screenwriting, plus the strictly enforced, zero tolerance standards enforced by film studios and networks, including practical, hands-on drills and dozens of secrets only veteran insiders like Jeff can share.
Included in every one of Jeff's seminars is his lecture on "How To Kill Procrastination," which instantly provides writers with the single tool needed to destroy writers block—permanently. Jeff Schimmel has created, developed, written, and/or produced TV shows and feature films for Hollywood studios, networks, production companies, and A-list talent, including Oscar-winning stars.
Spend just two days with Jeff, and you'll learn what books can't teach you, and what other writers and producers won't tell you.
