Storytelling for Screenwriters
Film & Fiction Coaching Packages
Film & Fiction Coaching Packages
The Story Launch Package – $997
Working with me begins with this new package, which involves a 1-hour recorded Zoom call to discuss either a 6-Stage outline of the concept for your feature film or novel, OR a list of up to four story concepts you are considering writing. After enrolling, you will receive instructions on how to schedule your coaching call and submit your material, which I will review prior to our coaching session.
During the call I will give you my suggestions for moving forward with a much stronger story concept that possesses an emotionally powerful structure, deeper character development, and greater commercial potential. At the end of our session, we can also discuss what directions you should take next, and how we might work together further.
My Coaching Team
Because my availability is very limited, and I want to offer you the best possible options for impacting your readers and audiences and achieving the success you desire, I have added two highly acclaimed and immensely successful screenwriters and consultants to my team…
Greg Fortier has worked for me as an administrative assistant and script consultant for more than 3 years. He’s a writer and teacher who combines his experience on the page with my proven Story Mastery method to help each of his clients tell the best version of his or her unique story.
Greg has written several scripts for hire, including REARRANGED, which won Best Comedy Screenplay at The Austin Film Festival before being optioned by Marginal Mediaworks, and the web series Upcode, which has nearly 1-million views on YouTube.
His original pilot, Today’s Special was an official selection at SeriesFest and the New York TV Festival; His scripts have placed in Launch Pad’s Top 10, the Screencraft Comedy Finals, the Cinestory Fellowship Finals, and taken home Grand Prize at The International Screenwriters Association awards.
He’s deeply familiar with the struggle and joy that is screenwriting. That, coupled with his tendency to take on his clients’ stories as if they were his own, enables him to elevate your script while helping you maintain your original spark. (He also consistently receives higher praise from his clients than I do from mine.)
Story Concept Coaching $450
Script Coaching: TV Pilot $900
Script Coaching: Feature Film $1100
Greg is also available for extended coaching and as a writer-for-hire. For more info, contact him for a free 15-minute consultation.
