To take your script to the next level,
you often need a sounding board.
When you're developing a story or screenplay, one of the hardest things to do is to take a step back and get out of your own head.
We've all been there. Spinning our wheels on a script and getting stuck with questions like:
Is this the right idea for me to pursue? Or should I choose another?
How do I get the most out of these characters, my world, and this concept?
Is what I have working?
Could this screenplay be the one that helps me break into the industry?
You can talk to friends about it, but ultimately you need to talk to someone in the industry.
Someone who won't try to "fix" your story for you, but instead will guide you towards finding a solution in your own unique voice as a writer.
Someone whose creative judgement you trust.
Someone who knows story.
But we know how hard it is to find someone like that—especially if you don't live in Hollywood.
So, we designed a service to give screenwriters the kind of feedback we wish we had when starting out.
A personal workshop designed to take your idea or script to the next level—your way.
Join us—Adam and Alexie—for a direct conversation completely devoted to making your story and screenplay the best it can be.
Every single one of our packages comes with a one-hour livestream consult. And, every session ends in written, tangible next steps for you to follow through.
We are big believers in the idea that YOU, the writer, have the best solutions for your story. And so our entire philosophy and strategy is about helping you to find those ideas for yourself.
So, what does a session include?
We ask you the right questions.
Every single Story Consultation comes with at least one-hour of face-to-face conversation with us, Adam and Alexie.
We know that you—the screenwriter—have the best solutions for your screenplay. It's your story—not ours.
Our job is to help tease out your fantastic ideas by asking the right questions, and then give guidance on how you can get them on the page.
You walk away with tangible next steps.
Even the most amazing notes in the world can be overwhelming. How do you process them? How do you implement them?
Every single Story Consultation ends with us giving you tangible next steps to help you continue to develop your story.
Choose what's right for you:
Frequently Asked Questions
Are sessions always with Adam and Alexie?
Yes. If you've worked with us in Workshops or Coffee Class before, you know our style of notes—you can expect the same here.
Which service should I purchase?
Developing Your Story will be useful no matter where you are in your script. Honing Your Opening Hook is for when you've written at least the beginning of your script.
English isn't my first language. Is that okay?
Of course. While the sessions are all conducted in English, we're happy to accommodate a slower pace, explanations, etc.
Is this script coverage?
Absolutely not. Coverage is intended for producers, not screenwriters. We're here to help you develop your story.
Will you do line edits of my screenplay?
No. We focus on the story and making sure it's firing on all cylinders. This service is not for editorial work.
Can I book a session with John?
Not through this service. But, to ask about prices, email [email protected] or ask us on the Discord.
How do I schedule my Consultation?
After purchasing, you'll be able to book a time to chat on our Calendly app. We book 2 months out.
Can I purchase Story Consulting more than once?
For sure! If you find yourself in need of coaching more than once, simply purchase the coaching again.
