Reclaim Your Creative Freedom
Imagine a world where no one tells youshould happen in your screenplay. You're free, yet your in-depth understanding of screenwriting allows you to design meaningful stories for Film & TV that reach a wide audience, at home and abroad.
The key to this world is the Story-Type Method.
This unique combination of exhilarating freedom and tremendous power, taught around the world by Emmanuel Oberg, is available in a series of books, online courses and live workshops. Enjoy!
...and Master Story Structure!
Emmanuel has not only taught screenwriting to thousands of filmmakers over the years, he's also a professional screenwriter and a creative consultant himself.
Talent and Craft
If you're after a cookie-cutter approach, this isn't for you. Talent can't be taught, but craft and principles can. If you're ready to put in the hours, it will be worth it...
There is the word "play" in screenplay, and it's too often forgotten. We don't want to take the fun out of writing - or learning. So let's play!

A New Approach to Screenwriting
Why the Story-Type Method? Simply because no other approach leaves you so free to write what you want to write, the way you enjoy doing it, while giving you the tools to design a bulletproof structure and troubleshoot your work.
#1. Ditch the Gurus
There is no single way to write a good screenplay. Story structure is a lot more flexible than 3 (or 5) acts, 8 sequences, 15 beats or 22 steps...
#2. Learn at Your Own Pace
Learning should be fun and relaxed. Whether you're reading a book or exploring an online course, you should be in control.
#3. Get Results!
Our approach is based on getting results rather than on theory for the sake of theory. We're helping creative professionals, not film critics.
