Full Details Of The Series HERE.

How can the characters, story world, dramatic arc and commercial viability of YOUR current project be enhanced, by mastering the universally loved genre of Horror?

Even if you aren’t writing a horror script, a fundamental understanding of what frightens us, what grips audiences, what will make audiences rapt, will improve your writing and your career.

In this series of masterclasses with Bob Schultz, we explore the five major story genres. Deepening our understanding of each will help us craft more compelling work in these genres. More importantly, it will also elevate our writing in different genres too.

Put simply, every single script would be improved by crafting SOME laughter within the story, even if your script is not a comedy. The same crossover is true of every genre, and it’s one way we can all elevate our work beyond convention.

This is not just about crossover genre, like Drama Thriller or Comedy Horror. It’s more about how we can utilise genre techniques in other genres. So using thrillers techniques inside a drama. Or how can we add world building techniques from Sci-Fi, to a traditional rom-com set in London for instance. It opens the door to fresh ideas that have been proven to work, but are rarely utilised.

Of course, it’s also a deep dive into each genre as a standalone too. But the mastery of each will enhance the execution of all stories we choose to tell.

Here are just a few of the things you can expect to gain from this masterclass:

  • A deep understanding of the fundamental principles of horror writing, including suspense, tension, and pacing.
  • The ability to create complex, relatable characters who can survive the horrors you put them through.
  • How to recraft your pitch using the Horror template and why it will improve outcomes.
  • Excitement, thrill and fear are all valuable tools to master and use in almost any story.
  • Examples that will illustrate concepts clearly in horror films – and NON-Horror as well.
 

Bob is a true master of horror and he invites you to join us for a day that will open a doorway into the darkness of your story. You may have an entire seat, but you will only need THE EDGE!

‘It was clearly structured, with brilliant advice and watching the clips was very helpful. It’s one of the best courses I’ve been on. The workshop part helped me look at my script in a new light – looking at those intense, emotion-laden, visually memorable moments which sum up relationship or theme. Brilliant!’
