THINK LIKE A WRITERIt all starts here. In 2005, I taught the first version of this screenwriting class in my living room. It has since become the foundation of everything we teach at Jacob Krueger Studio. To me, it’s more than just a screenwriting class. It’s a place where writers of all levels of experience can come together to build a community, and where you can develop not only a mastery of the craft, but also an authentic voice as an artist. So, whether you are a new writer or a seasoned professional, come with your biggest dreams and an open mind, and allow me and my faculty 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
Forever Change The Way You View Screenwriting.Rather than imposing formulaic models from the outside, you’ll learn to organically “grow” your script, from initial idea, to character, to scene, to act, to the movie you’ve always dreamed of writing.
Jump Start Your Writing.Whether you’re a young writer picking up the pen for the first time, or an old pro looking to inject new life into your writing, this exciting four week workshop will teach you a whole new way of looking at the fundamentals, and help you integrate your artistic goals into your real world life.
