Many ‘change the world’ scripts end up reading like propaganda or sermonizing to audiences.
And audiences don’t want to get told what to think, let alone spend $20 at a theater for the privilege!
But movies CAN change people’s lives… when you write them to be profound.
“Wow! What a class and the insights learned. It was simple to follow with the examples, and the movie selections highlighted the profound map… It certainly goes beyond thinking within the 3 act structure and character diamonds so popularly taught… It is a must course for both the beginner and experienced screenwriters.” – Anna Marie Hernandez
Make A Difference Through Great Storytelling
The perfect marriage of ‘message’ and ‘entertainment’ comes when the Profound meaning is INTEGRAL to the story.
Without that meaning, the story and its emotional impact wouldn’t be the same!
When producers read REMEMBER THE TITANS, they didn’t see it as another “cause movie.” They saw a great football story about people defeating racism to become an AMAZING team.
And you can do the same with your story.
Put Profound Meaning Into Any Script
We designed this class to bake profound meaning into the bedrock of any screenplay – so you can weave it throughout the entire story.
You’ll see these movies analyzed to better learn where Profound writing appears and how to write it yourself:
12 Angry Men
Dead Poets Society
Remember The Titans
The skills in the class’ 16 lessons will transform your writing – and all of them together in a script will give you the Profound core that can make a real difference.
“The Profound Screenplay Class will spur creativity in SO many ways, and on SO many levels, helping a writer find the Profound Truth of their story, constructing it clearly, and cementing it in the end… Extremely valuable to every writer, no matter the discipline.”
– Robin F. Gainey (award-winning novelist)
