No one got paid to say this stuff...
"I've taken a couple of Max classes and I've learned more in them than my two years in the UCLA writer's program."
"No screenwriting book that I have read or other classes I have taken have come close to eliciting the number of "ah-ha" moments that these classes provide."
"If you are serious about screenwriting then run don't walk into the nearest class taught by screenwriter Max Adams. You WILL be enlightened."
"Just wanted to take the time to say thank you for teaching the best writing class that I've ever taken."
"Honest to God. I've learned so much in such a short amount of time that it shocks me that more writers aren't taking this class."
"Basically, I now feel empowered to go out and write some good shit."
"I've taken three of Max Adams' independent classes and they have transformed my writing. Not only do I see immediate differences in how I write scenes and characters but the lessons sink in very deep. My writing has improved in not just scripts but fiction as well, because of her instruction."
"The master's classes are fantastic! I have taken several from Max and she never disappoints. The classes are, by far, the most helpful, insightful and fun screenwriting classes I have taken. If you are serious about a screenwriting career, you need to take these courses."
"Max has been the mentor I'd hoped for. I was a hard-working bunny in her left door workshop and it's been, by far, my best workshop experience ever. She's one of those writers, and they're rare, who knows story by instinct as well as training. If you're interested in her classes, do yourself and your work a favor and sign up. Seriously."
"Using the advice from 'The Screenwriter's Survival Guide,' I have had success with four pitches to editors and agents. 100% requesting more material."
"Thanks to Max I've written two feature-length screenplays. Included in my lifetime peak experiences is the writing of 'fade out' those two times."
"I've always wanted to write screenplays. Thanks to Max, I'm doing it."
"Her classes rock. The workshop rocks. I have written 2 full scripts and several shorts. One was not so good. The other one placed in Page last year."
"I will never forget the feeling of exhausting hyperventilation the first time I took a screenwriting class. I was one step to panic and about ready to give up before I even started. But I was lucky, luckier than I ever hoped for. Because that is where I met Max Adams, one of the best, gifted and most of all talented teachers I have ever had. She was the hand behind my back that pushed me forward instead of keeping me back, she believed in me and helped me believe in myself too. She is an inspiration, even when she's waving a stick."
"Max gets everything, all the layers, and she gets them at lightening speed. She knows how to tell someone to improve a work and they get it. It is like she is mainlined into some knowledge reality."
"Max was immediately able to zero in on some of my strengths and weaknesses and offered clear and helpful tools that helped me through some of the blocks that have been plaguing me for years."
"In addition to obviously having a tremendous amount of knowledge regarding the movie industry and screenplay writing craft, Max consistently provided thoughtful, detailed comments on all student work and was always available to answer questions. Because of the class, I feel I am starting to see many dimensions of screenplay writing that I could not see before."
"(Oh, yeah, I also fell in love with Max :D)"
"I love how Max took the time to read everything from everyone and gave an answer or feedback to everything. It really showed how much she likes teaching, and I loved hearing what she had to say."
"Max is excellent. Sharp, direct, honest, funny- she gives generous thorough feedback and her comments are spot on."
"Max comes across as a really likable person. I enjoyed the banter and her tone. Her comments were extremely helpful and at the same time very kind."
"Max Adams is an extremely knowledgable and fair (remarkably patient) instructor. I would take this class again in a heartbeat."
"Max Adams does not get paid enough to do this. I don't care what you're paying her. Pay her more. I was dumbfounded by the amount of feedback she was able to provide on assignments...."
"Awesome, awesome class. Hard, enlightening and fun!!"
"What I learned from Max's screenwriting class I also took to my scribbling as a novelist. Thanks Max."
"Max didn't teach me everything I know about writing... but she did teach me everything I use."
"Workshopping with Max in the early days helped one script become a Nicholl finalist; a second workshopped script earned me a Disney Fellowship."
"When you think you know everything there is to know, check out one of Max's classes."
"Once again taking an Academy class was a delight. I expected to get guidance that was not available anywhere else, and that was true once again. This is a real triumph."
"I really enjoyed taking this class. I look at my scripts with a new perspective."
"This is the second class I've taken from you and it now ranks as the best writing class I've ever taken."
"I have learned more in this class than in both semesters at UCLA.
"Seriously. The best class[es] you'll ever take. Don't even hesitate."
"Max Adams's lessons are direct and actionable. You can immediately put her methods to work in your story, and she teaches you both how to use them and why they work. I thought the class was great and very useful. More so than some classes I took in a certain reputable MFA program."
"Thanks for a great learning experience; the class exceeded all my expectations."
