The course had more jaw-dropping moments than Game of Thrones.

To sum it up in one word, INSPIRING! When I get stuck at a certain point, be it treatment or bible, I search high and low for a spark or key to unlock the issue so that I can move on. I now feel like the janitor walking about with a master key, no longer intimidated by the daunting task of holistically bringing everything together in a single document.

I did this course online and loved it from start to finish. I think it gives writers a very clear understanding of some really useful tools which can be used to design a story/storylines or to diagnose why a story might not be working and how to fix it. […] I think I will come back again and again to all I’ve learned here.

A deep dive into story structure

“Emmanuel’s course is like a deep dive into story structure. You think you’ve got it mastered and then you realise how much more there is to learn. I feel so much more equipped as a screenwriter and script reader after this course.”

Niamh O'Connor

Excellent course for those who work with story

A brilliant and comprehensive one stop shop

This course helped to focus my ideas and give them direction, steering me away from wasting my time. It’s a brilliant and comprehensive one stop shop that cuts through all the excess and illuminates the path to writing your best script.

A great course

I found the course to be really comprehensive and practical. Emmanuels’ application and teaching of the ‘Story Type Method’ can be applied to every possible type of TV series genre including Hybrids.

An engaging masterclass in storytelling

Emmanuel was engaging throughout and his passion for storytelling has definitely encouraged me to put pen to paper.

A wonderful opportunity!

Emmanuel Oberg organised for our FAMU production students an amazing short session from his workshop. An introduction to his method, including a group work, “What’s Your Type?” was great and followed with personal Q&A afterwards that gave our students a wonderful opportunity to dig into the subject.

Karla Stojakova

An insightful, clarifying and fun workshop!

Emmanuel Oberg’s workshop offers an insightful and comprehensive way to approach tv series narrative and structure. […] It is also fun and I really enjoyed taking it. I can say that I feel much better equipped now to face the development of my series project.

Cristina Zumarraga

A great tool box to find your own approach

Emmanuel’s approach to dramaturgical structure is the right mix between craftsmanship and the knowledge that each project is individual. He gives you a great tool box to find your own approach.

Thanks, Emmanuel!

Of all the many international workshops I have done, I have rarely experienced one that offered such a steep learning curve. Thanks, Emmanuel.

Thank you very much for being the turning point of the TV series writing in Latvia!!!

Have Any Questions?


Don't hesitate to contact us if your question isn't listed.

Who might want to enrol in a Story-Type Method online course?

These are advanced courses, so they are not for beginners.

The minimum level of experience would be film students with a master's degree. Most of our alumni are professional writers, directors, creative producers, showrunners, story editors and development executives working in the Film and TV industry, worldwide.

We really don't believe in a one-size-fits-all, simplistic approach: Screenwriting and script development require talent, hard work, and originality.

If you're looking for a modern, flexible approach to story structure, if you want to learn about the craft and are keen to troubleshoot your projects, then our courses should be a great fit for you.

How are the courses delivered?

All our online courses are self-led, with no live interactive element. However, we use advanced online tools to deliver a unique experience: training videos with subtitles and transcripts, quizzes, optional games for our flagship courses (10 hours of training content or more) and extensive course materials.

Although the transcripts are not downloadable, all the slides shown in a course are included in the course materials. Some courses have companion books, in which case the book allows you to dive further into the subject. Free samplers of our books (first 60-70 pages) are also included in the course materials.

We can deliver live, interactive online sessions (Q&A, group work, project work, one-to-one meetings) for groups or teams of five or more participants, but these optional sessions can't be purchased directly from the website. Please look at our Live Workshops for more information or contact us.

If you'd like to get some feedback on your project after completing a course, please check our Consulting and Coaching options.

Are there prerequisites or language requirements?

All our online courses are delivered in English, so a good understanding of the language is necessary. All our training videos come with English subtitles and transcripts, which makes them more accessible to non-native English speakers.

Otherwise, you're expected to have an intermediate to advanced understanding and practice of screenwriting.

Some of our courses require participants to have attended our Advanced Development Workshop or read "Screenwriting Unchained" before going through the content. This will be specified for each course.
