On May 13-15 at NYC’s Times Square DoubleTree Guest Suites, A-list story teacher John Truby will host his Anatomy of a Story Masterclass. For three consecutive days from 9:30am – 6:00pm, hundreds of students from beginner to advanced levels including Oscar nominees, Emmy nominees and Hollywood producers will travel from around the world to take part in this comprehensive experience. But now you can also be rewarded just for following Truby’s twitter.
Over the next week, follow @JohnTruby on twitter and RT (re-tweet for the non-tech) his tweets about the NY Masterclass to enter the contest. The winner will receive a copy of Truby’s award-winner Blockbuster writing software valued at nearly $400.
Truby hosted a similar contest in March during the Los Angeles Masterclass and the winner only days later tweeted:
“In love w/ @JohnTruby’s software “Blockbuster”. It’s made to help u think through ur franchise’s story before u write it. ”
You can win too. Simply follow @JohnTruby on Twitter and re-tweet his messages which include the NY Masterclass. The tweets will begin immediately. So hurry up, follow and re-tweet to be part of the fun!
Day one of Truby’s Masterclass will detail story design and structure. Day two will delve into character and dialogue. Day three will focus on genre techniques. Each intensive day Truby will explain ideas, techniques and designs in detail, dissect examples, lead discussion, and answer your questions.
Hollywood producer Ralph Winter (X-Men, Planet of the Apes, Star Trek) reveals, “This course is so good I took it twice.” Emmy-nominated writer Richard Kramer (My So-Called Life, thirtysomething) continues: ”Truby’s class is based on a moral understanding of the world, and makes you not only a better writer, but a better person.”
Over the course of a 25-year career as Hollywood’s most respected and sought-after screenwriting teacher and story analyst, Truby offers successful and proven principles that allow the writer to precisely map their entire plot, so they can tell their story in the most dramatic way possible.
