First 30.....The perfect jump-start!

The First 30 Pages was a godsend. I have a "based on a true story" female driven drama that I was anxious to get going on. I didn't have ONE WORD of script written when I joined...just the story beginning loosely rattling around in my brain. By the end of class? I had 30 solid pages with incredible feedback for the rewrite. Seriously, folks, this is a kick ass class that is, well, kick ass!

Open your screenplay right

If a reader isn't captivated on the first page or... if a reader gets bored before the inciting incident, you'll never get a full read. Max makes sure your opening image and protagonist intro will make the reader WANT to read what's next.

Magic!

Max's class taught me how to mine the first 30 pages, take the gold and leave the rest! I can't wait to take it again!

A reference point for every draft of every script

You have to get the first 30 right, and no one else provides to insights to do this effectively that Max does. This is a challenging course, but the rewards are amazing. Highly recommended!

A Real Time Consult

The benefit of this class is that Max, and the other students, review the first 30 pages of your screenplay. This is a real time review and feedback of the opening pages, pointing out what works, and what would improve the story in terms of establishing and illuminating the story problem. Prior to submitting a script to the industry, take this class.

Get the first 30 pages right...

I loved this class. It really focuses on where and how to start your story in your script, beginning with opening images through the first 30 pages that set up the rest of the script. Max Adams provides great insight and provided me with really priceless feedback. Want to start the script with a bang and pull the reader in? Take this class.

The difference between keeping and losing the reader...

...lies within the first thirty pages of your screenplay. Max knows that well as a screenwriting veteran and a Nicholl winner and reviewer. And after this course, you'll have the tools to grab your reader from the neck and keep him glued on your words. An extremely useful course for screenwriters in an era when the reviewers' attention spans are so thin.
