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'
Teodor Reljić // Screenwriter
