The Story-Type Method

An exciting new approach to screenwriting and script development designed to help you master story structure while setting you free from unnecessary and outdated rules…


The Story-Type Method® is a groundbreaking screenwriting and storytelling theory introduced by Emmanuel Oberg in his bestselling book Screenwriting Unchained, which hit the #1 slot in screenwriting and TV Screenwriting on Amazon US and in many countries around the world when it was published in 2016.

The second volume in the collection, The Screenwriter’s Troubleshooter, was published in October 2019 and also became an Amazon bestseller in TV Screenwriting.

The third volume, a companion book to our interactive online course Writing a Successful TV Series, was published in June 2023 and became instantly a #1 New Release in TV Screenwriting on Amazon U.S. and Amazon UK. It became a #1 bestseller in TV Screenwriting on Amazon U.S. in October 2023.

Quick Overview

This free training on script development provides a quick overview of Oberg’s approach. Along with the free sampler of his first book, Screenwriting Unchained, available as a download when you register with the website, it’s one of the best ways to get a sense of the benefits of using the method during the development of film and TV series projects. It also suggests ways to get more help if needed. This free training is available as a webinar, a mini-course and an 80-page e-book.

Live Workshops & Programs

The Story-Type Method is also at the heart of Emmanuel’s Advanced Development Workshop. Add-on modules on Thrillers, ComediesAnimations and TV Series as well as rewrite workshops for feature films or TV Series are available too. These workshops are delivered online or in-person (travel permitting), live or in hybrid form (interactive online course + live Q&A sessions).

If your priority is development rather than training, you might want to take a look at our Slate Acceleration – Advanced Development Program.
