    Jake is an amazing teacher. Many are good at their craft but unable to share it. He does it with a warm, interactive style that made the class fun and interesting.

    John is a great teacher and a fun person. Those are critical for learning. Nobody wants a teacher who is judgey or mean or just not fun. For such a short class, I learned a ton. Thanks so much John!

    I haven't been this inspired in ages. Jacob made the course work and eventual worth of the screenplay seem like something that I knew I should do but didn't know how to finish.

    This course was great! I had Vanessa, and she gave an awesome overview of the screenwriting process, answering the group's (many) questions along the way while staying on track with her course material, too. Well worth the $—I now feel equipped to get started writing my own screenplay!

    Reviewed by Elizabeth B. on 2/25/2019
    This was an excellent intensive one-day intro to screenwriting, including the development and classification of ideas, the process of taking a script from idea through various stages to the actual writing of the draft, an in-depth discussion of structure and the way it has changed over time (from the 1970s to today, for example), and a quick but informative overview of the software used in the actual screenwriting process. Loved it, would highly recommend.

    I have been around writing for a very long time from many perspectives, have degrees in writing and so on and within the first 15 minutes of class I started hearing things from Jacob that I had never heard anywhere. He is a brilliant teacher and the kind of person you just want to be around because I know he is changing not just my writing but my life in ways that I still have not even fully realized yet.
