THE UNIVERSE: So...JH, you think you know everything, do ya?

ME: Well, no, not really. THE UNIVERSE: Passive answer. Try again. ME: Okay... NO. Full stop. THE UNIVERSE: Good, dog! Yes, old dogs such as myself really can learn new tricks! This class incorporates the arts of escalation, scene sequencing and structure. Bottom line.... it made me think differently (sorry Apple) about how to approach my writing. So...just do it (sorry Nike!)

Max is the best teacher I know

In Mastering Story Momentum, Max teaches how to craft a professional script with a focus on creative decisions for dramatic effect, story logic, pacing, escalation… Max knows the intricacies of screenwriting on a level that seems like witchcraft, but teaches in a way that is clear and succinct—with specific and easy to use tools—making the information 100% workable.

Max hits it out of the stadium theatre

Momentum is a vital screenwriting concept, and Max Adams has a unique ability to break down and clarify key ideas. In doing the class exercises, writers receive in-depth writer-specific Max teaching moments. These points lead to epiphanies that can't be gotten in a cattle call workshop of hundreds, books, articles, or other classes. The course is highly recommended for beginners and experts alike.

Another Great Class by Max

I have not taken a single class by Max, where I have not learned more about the story and the power it has to create new worlds. Mastering the Story Momentum allowed me to focus on making sure my stories have flow to them instead of aimlessly wondering about. Great class with fun engaging exercises.

Hook the reader and keep them interested

Fantastic class. I use the lessons from Mastering Story Momentum with every script I write. The class taught me to differentiate the story from the plot and break down scene by scene and act by act to ensure the script grabs and holds the reader’s interest throughout. Highly recommend.

An often overlooked aspect of storytelling explained

We've all felt this, watching a film that starts strong, then drags into intolerable boredom. Max's course helped me fix my plots' pacings, see the story's readers' interest kept until the end. She's a Nicholl winner and fellow, who knows what's needed for a film's plot to take off and soar. Let her teach you that, as she did to me.
