Do your screenplays feel flat or lifeless even though you’re doing ‘everything right’? Does it seem like your stories aren’t really connecting with readers?

If you aren’t drawing on your personal struggles, pain and desires, your screenplays will never have the emotional resonance of a great story. By tapping into your core wounds you’ll uncover your unconscious themes and dramas. Then you can fuse your characters with something real. Readers and producers will feel it. And you’ll be a big step closer to inking a deal.

Through exercises, personal stories, a guided mediation and worksheets, you’ll get the bigger picture of how to connect with your core wounds in this 90-minute OnDemand webinar. From there, we’ll look at strategies on how to fuse these themes into your characters to make them live and breathe in huge ways.
