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 skills to make it happen. The bad news is that a big percentage of people with those great ideas refuse to learn the rules, insist the rules don’t apply to them, are paralyzed by procrastination, or just can’t seem to get out of their own way. Not exactly a formula for success.
My promise: If you take my class, pay attention, follow my advice, apply my techniques, 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 over 30 years, and has been teaching his unique, intensive seminars in cities around the country since 2004. If you've ever dreamed of becoming a professional screenwriter, Jeff's easy to understand courses were created with you in mind. Imagine a fun, fast-paced weekend where writers receive a complete education in writing for TV and film, including lessons in story structure, character development, dialogue, and perhaps the most crucial skill for any writer—creating the indispensable, killer outline. That is Maximum Screenwriting. Plus, Jeff's seminars also include his lecture on "How To Kill Procrastination," which instantly provides writers with the simple strategy needed to destroy writers block—permanently.
Students who attend Jeff’s 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 insider secrets only veterans like Jeff can share.
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.
