Max Adams knows her stuff.

I was lucky enough to stumble upon Max Adam's courses a few years ago. I took most of them, and the fees were money well spent. Max knows storytelling for the screen, and she knows pitching very well. Have no fear to attend this course, and have full faith that this course will help you pitch your story in the best possible way.
