Logline clinic with Bob Schultz
We all know that the industry distils our 120 pages of blood, sweat and a considerable amount of tears, all down to a log line. A sentence, or maybe two, that conveys plot, characters, tone, universe, story and so much more. Join other writers just like you for a day long hands-on workshop that will turbo charge your loglines. Additionally, there is a 30 minute seminar (to watch online) to prep for the workshop. Have Bob fix your logline and learn HOW he does it so you can do it too.

More Of What Delegates Say About What We Do...
'In this “Zoom era” it’s very obvious who can teach online and who cannot. Bob is brilliant at keeping you on your toes for hours and definitely knows his craft. This class is like a movie well made. Everything just works, makes sense, and shifts your perspective in a very interesting way'
Johanna Philip, Writer/Director
'Fabulous material, great delivery, very clear analysis and instruction. Loved the focus, the intensity, being asked to really stretch those writing muscles!'
Vera Mark, Writer and Filmmaker
‘A really judicious balance of elements, and a masterly distillation of some very complicated but indispensable ideas.’
Andrew Campbell // Screenwriter
'My writing partner and I booked Bob's one-on-one consultation session with a plethora of warring, anxious questions in our heads, and emerged from it with focused and determined ones instead. Bob identifies the core priorities of your story in finger-snap time, and asks all the right questions to help you get to the root of both its problems and potential. A lean, mean (but actually kind) hour of charged wisdom - highly recommended'
