THINK LIKE A WRITER

It all starts here. The Write Your Screenplay class has been the foundation of everything we teach at Jacob Krueger Studio since 2005.

More than just a screenwriting class, you’ll discover a place where writers of all levels of experience come together to build community, and where you can develop both a mastery of the craft and an authentic voice as an artist.

Whether you are new to screenwriting or a seasoned professional, come with your biggest dreams and an open mind, and allow us to show you a new way of thinking about screenwriting that breaks out of the tired old formulas and pushes past your own inner censors.

You may find that you don’t just change your writing but also change your life.

— Jacob Krueger

LEARN 7 ACT STRUCTURE. 

Rather than imposing formulaic models from the outside, you’ll learn our unique approach to screenwriting structure and an intuitive way to organically “grow” your script, from initial idea, to character, to scene, to act, to the movie you’ve always dreamed of writing.

BREAK THROUGH WRITERS BLOCK. 

Learn how to banish writers block and procrastination, build structure for your life as a screenwriter and integrate your writing goals into your real world life.

GETTING PAST YOUR INNER CENSOR. 

Our mind opening in-class writing exercises are designed to get you writing and keep you writing. You’ll learn how to get your creativity flowing at will, and get past your own judgment to find inspiration in an instant and harness the power of your unique voice as an artist.

LEARN THE CRAFT OF SCREENWRITING. 

Once you’ve connected the compelling raw material of your subconscious mind, you’ll learn how to apply craft to polish up that diamond in the rough. You’ll learn the four phases of writing and rewriting, a new, intuitive approach to screenplay format, how to write dialogue that jumps off the page and much more!

FIND YOUR COMMUNITY. 

Discover a close-knit community of fellow writers, whose only goal is to support you in yours. Together, you’ll learn a new form of feedback that keeps the focus on what really matters: your story and how you want to tell it.

LEARN FROM A WORLD CLASS SCREENWRITER. 

Steven Bagatourian’s screenwriting career spans over two decades and ranges from the biggest studio blockbusters to award winning independent features and TV shows. His credits include AMERICAN GUN (IFC, 2005) nominated for three Independent Spirit Awards, including Best Picture, and ALL EYEZ ON ME (Lionsgate, 2017), the landmark biopic of rap icon Tupac Shakur. With a major studio film scheduled to begin shooting next year from Warner Bros/Alcon Entertainment (THE BLIND SIDE, BLADE RUNNER 2049), a TV Drama collaboration with the legendary producer of GRAN TORINO and former Publisher of DC Comics, Jenette Kahn, scripts sold scripts to 20th Century Fox, Echo Lake Productions, Mandalay Entertainment and many others, and projects with Denzel Washington, Charles Stone III, Amanda Seyfried, Forest Whitaker, Donald Sutherland, and Dr. Dre, Steven offers a lifetime of world class industry experience to his students. You will not only learn from him. You’ll be inspired by him.
