Truby’s Writers Studio, based in Los Angeles, is celebrating their 25th anniversary. Founder John Truby has taught his 22-Step Great Screenwriting course to more than 30,000 students in a dozen countries and developed a number of teaching techniques and products geared to the professional writer.
Truby just inked a deal with the St. Petersburg Univ. of Film and Television in Russia to conduct his two-day Screenwriting Masterclass to groups in St. Petersburg and Moscow. They also have exclusive Russian rights to sell Truby’s wide array of screenwriting classes on CD and DVD and his award-winning Blockbuster software and add-on genre programs.
John Truby explained, “In my work with studios overseas, I’m seeing more demand for professional training for screenwriters. Now that hit movies are released simultaneously in every country, filmmakers are aspiring to write a worldwide blockbuster.” In addition to classes, Truby consults with many studios overseas, including BBC in the U.K., RAI in Italy, Studio Canal in France, and MTV Sweden. Truby continued, “These studios have discovered, as Hollywood has, that hit films worldwide are not star driven, they are story driven.”
John Truby is regarded as the serious writer’s story coach and has taught his 22-Step Great Screenwriting and Genre courses to sold-out audiences. Truby continues to serve as a story consultant to the major studios, including Sony Pictures, HBO, Disney Studios, Alliance Atlantis, Cannell Studios, BBC, MTV Sweden, RAI in Italy, and many others. Truby’s best-selling book, The Anatomy of Story (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux), newly out in paperback, has received glowing reviews and is used as a textbook at film schools across the country.
