Will this eBook really teach me How to Write a Screenplay?
We think so! Look, there is no one way to learn how to write a screenplay. And of course, rules are made to be broken.
But the truth is, no matter what, writing a screenplay is hard. Even when you aren’t saddled with an extra layer of anxiety about the state of the world and the health of your family.
We created this eBook to help you jump in and start writing.
Written by screenwriter, teacher, and prolific No Film School contributor, Jason Hellerman, How to Write a Screenplay (During Quarantine) combines many of the best practices, tricks, and resources found in dozens of screenwriting books out there on the market.
Our main goal with this eBook is to prompt you to put pen to paper—whether this is your first time writing a script or your hundredth.
If you find the guide as helpful as we hope you will, you can thank us by spreading the word about it. Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, or anywhere.
As always with No Film School, we're offering one set of methods and solutions we think work, but if you have others share them so we can, as a community, grow together.
Because we've all had story ideas kicking around in our heads. But in the words of famous screenwriter William Goldman, "The easiest thing to do on earth is not write."
It's hard to find the time. Life gets in the way.
Until now. Thanks to the coronavirus, we don't have a life...
So go ahead and fill out the form above to get reading/writing!
