June 17, 2019: I'm back from Amsterdam, where I had the pleasure of delivering a second edition of my 3-day Advanced Development Workshop to a lively group of experienced Dutch filmmakers. Many thanks again to Doreen Boonekamp and Gitta Kruisbrink from the Netherlands Film Fund and to Jacobine van der Vloed and the ACE Producers team, who made this event happen.
The feedback from the workshop has been very positive, so thanks everyone for your kind words, spoken or written.

"Emmanuel Oberg's workshop was very inspiring and eye opening. Three days with an intensive focus on storytelling in the broadest sense where existing models of structuring a screenplay were questioned. Emmanuel's wider perspective is at the same time very detailed. Both the workshop and the book provide useful tools and make you reflect on what can be the best path for your story to flourish. It's also an encouragement to an analytical but flexible approach of your story without being dogmatic."
