Our students experience

  • Without question, this is the best course for someone who wants to immediately understand the basics (and advanced concepts) of storytelling. Taking this one course is far better than reading five other books on screenwriting and pooling the advice on your own. This course has it all done for you and so easy to understand.

  • I have found the information in this course about how to develop characters and plot far more useful than anything else I've ever read or watched on the subject. I would recommend taking this course if you're new to writing or even if you're more experienced and open to reconsidering how you structure your work. It's great for novelists, screenwriters and anybody writing for television.

Imagine…

Sitting by your desk and looking at your first completed movie script.

How would it make you feel?

Knowing you followed through with your passion and love of movies and stories. Something you would be proud to share with the world. Something that could get sold one day and make you extra income doing what you love doing, writing a great story.

What if you wrote a story that inspires people across the world and changes their lives forever?

You have a story you want to write but…

You just need a little bit of help and guidance to materialize that dream. You know there’s an audience out there looking for the type of story you want to write. But your missing that technical know-how about story structure and screenplay format.

Follow a proven story structure

Hi, I’m Varinder Singh Chahal, creator of the Screenplay Crash Course.

It can be overwhelming to get through the sea of information on storytelling. We live in a time of “information overload”. With an endless amount of books, videos and articles online about how to write a story or movie script.

I’ve spent years learning about storytelling and script writing. So, I wanted to create a simple screenwriting guide that would help me quickly develop my screenplays backed by a proven story and screenplay structure that has been used for countless years by industry professionals.

I poured everything I know about how to write a movie script into this guide that is easy to follow and quick to grasp. It’s very important to understand the basic fundamentals of storytelling that all great stories rely on. Once you’ve got a good grasp on the basics, you can begin constructing any type of story you have in mind with confidence knowing your story is being held together by a solid foundation.

Why did I create the course?

After creating the screenwriting guide, I thought to myself, “there must be thousands of people out there who are searching for the same information that took me years to uncover.”

I wanted to share my knowledge with fellow writers who are on the same journey and share the same passion for storytelling and screenwriting. Saving you a ton of time, money and headache from making common beginner mistakes when writing a movie script.

So, the Screenplay Crash Course was born. A step-by-step guide that will teach you how to write your dream movie script with confidence and backed by a proven screenplay structure!

It’s directed towards the beginner, so there’s no fancy over-the-top lingo or complicated storytelling techniques that you don’t need to know when starting off. Your number one goal should be to simply write your first screenplay draft from beginning to end. Just knowing you have the skills to actually write a script will boost your confidence to new heights! Once you got that first screenplay draft in your hands, it’s all about improving your skills, getting it from good to great!

  • Love this course. It allows me to actually write my script while watching each lesson. There was no talk about unnecessary details, it was all straight to the point, lesson after lesson. I also found the action sheets at the end of each lesson to be super handy, it simplified all the points mentioned in each lesson making it even easier to write your own script.

  • Screenwriting is definitely complicated but I feel like this course breaks every aspect of screenwriting down and simplifies each point and then on top of that provides action sheets basically making it failproof for you as long as you developed a strong high concept. The course takes real-world examples of well-known movies and deconstructs it into a formulaic process you can follow and utilize in your own scripts. Very helpful.

The course is also filled with real world examples from popular movies such as Jurassic Park, Up, The Dark Knight, Shawshank Redemption, Rocky, James Bond and Cars to name a few.

Our students experience

  • Step by step this course takes you through the process of screenwriting, with emphasis on all of the scary bits - writing dialog, setting a scene, and character development. It is clear and it is concise, but it is not boring...the lessons are engaging and light, making screenwriting seem within reach, even for a beginner. This course gives any reader the right foundation to begin a screenplay with absolute confidence.

  • It gets to the heart of what makes a good story in the simplest way possible. There are books better for formatting and some read more like textbooks or are so complicated that it would render any writer helpless, but this course I'd suggest for anyone wanting to get started or a writer who writes technically well but can't get to the heart of what the story is about.
