We’ve reconceived our virtual film school in order to help writers get seriously affordable daily inspiration, resources, activities and feedback from us for a fraction of the usual price. For just $125 a month we can send you a new PDF of learning materials, Creative Challenges and other activities, every weekday – and, when you submit your outcomes to us by email, we’ll send you daily feedback as well! We’ve reduced our prices as far as we can without breaking minimum wage levels (just do the math!) to be able to offer support as widely as possible to help everyone cope with the challenging era of global Coronavirus lockdowns.

And what’s more – if you join the Academy Lite – you can submit a script to our contests for FREE every month – saving you $49 – half the value of the month’s Academy Lite! You can’t go wrong!


Creative Challenges

Creative Challenge

  • A daily prompt to fulfil a short daily routine that will keep you positive, motivated and progressing
  • A 30 minute task to achieve this, which includes:
  • 20 minutes spent either writing, making sketches or notes, based on a short and simple prompt
  • 10 minutes of reflection and sharing from the activity you’ve done, to recognize what it has taught you about yourself and your writing, and get peer support via social media, or by submitting to us at WriteMovies.
  • The momentum and stimulation to carry forward into the rest of your day – hopefully enabling you to be creative, productive, focused and successful every day through the lockdown and beyond.

Why us?

We’ve been selling scripts and other works to the international entertainment industry for decades and develop writers of ANY age and experience level. If you’re considering film school, you don’t have to leave the house or go $100k into debt! No one gives you an industry writing job because you went to a specific film school. You get one because of the quality of your writing sample. Our complete course is a fraction of the $100k cost of Film School and available from home wherever you are, in your own time!
