Writing a Movie Is Undeniably TOUGH:
Our Online Screenwriting Course
Skyrockets Your Odds of Success
In the online screenwriting course we’ll teach you how to…
Maximize Your Writing Time
Time – or the lack of it – is the great pain point of the screenwriter. You can’t develop all your ideas in to full scripts. You can’t write all day, because you’ve got a day job. With us you’ll learn the pro tips and tactics to get the most of yourself, and your time.
Network (Even If You Know No-One In Showbiz)
Building relationships is an absolutely fundamental part of being a screenwriter. Today, you have to hustle, as well as write well – there’s no other way. We teach you all the short-cuts and insider tactics.
Dodge Mistakes & Accelerate Progress
Working out how to start your career as a screenwriter is one of the trickiest parts of the process, both creatively and in a business sense. After taking our course, you’ll have a crystal-clear view of the pathway ahead, what to do, and crucially what NOT to do…
About The Fundamentals of Screenwriting
Screenwriting is a craft, but when you begin to unpick your favourite shows and movies it’ll soon become clear that there’s familiar methods, systems and narrative structures in play. After taking our course you’ll know screenplay structure, back to front.
I’ve tried writing courses in the past and have never found one that helped in the way this one has. It’s well structured and well thought out. I found it very easy to follow and I also found it easy to put the information I picked up in to practice. I’m now working on a script with more confidence than I had before.
I took this course over a couple of months, which is one of the big advantages for me. I like to take my time and take things in, which you can’t do on a weekend residential course. Having gone at my own pace, I realised there was more to this course than I realised. It covers pretty much everything you need to know to produce and market a good screenplay.
Screenplays are hard to get right if you don’t know what you’re doing. The course really helped me understand exactly what’s needed to plan in advance to make sure it runs smoothly. Thank you Industrial Scripts for helping me to develop my screenplay.

VIDEO – TEXT – QUIZZES – EXERCISES
Our Courses Are a Mixture of Video, Text, Quizzes and Writing Exercises
Our courses have been deliberately designed to encourage writers to learn as they write. Ideally, you’ll complete a full movie script as you work your way through the modules and lessons. Ultra-specific exercises that you can do even when you’re not online are peppered throughout the course, so you’re writing even on your daily commute!
“The best thing about the course was the ‘dos and dont’s’ section. Not so much for the ‘dos’, those are well covered, but more the ‘don’ts’. It’s so easy to get carried away with what you’ve learned and start writing, that you don’t realise that you could be making some obvious mistakes. This section made me more aware of what I shouldn’t be doing as I went along and I’m sure that helped me develop a much better script. Great advice.
Give Your Script The Best Start In Life…
The screenplay, so they say, is like a writer’s baby: you birth it, raise it, sustain it, and then release it in to the world. But there are so many pitfalls, both in terms of the artistic process, and The Industry. Skyrocket your odds of success with ULTIMATE Screenwriting – you won’t regret it!
TRICKY QUIZZES KEEP YOU ON YOUR TOES
Our Unique Quiz System Pushes You to Absorb The Information
You probably think the quizzes in our courses are easy, right? Think again: we’ve made them deliberately tricky to keep you on your toes while you’re learning. Our system won’t let you move forward to the next lesson until you’ve nailed the quiz. True character is only revealed under pressure…
“I love the little quizzes at the end of each module. I do like getting all the questions right, but equally, I like getting the odd question wrong. It makes me go back and check over things which means I take in more of what I’ve learned. Overall I’d highly recommend Ultimate Screenwriting to anyone looking to develop scripts.

“I’ve attended writing courses which are run by people who don’t know the industry. As you’d expect of Industrial Scripts, everyone involved in this course really does know what they’re talking about. I went back over what I had written as soon as I’d finished the course and found I could make it even better the 2nd time around…”

Frequently Asked Questions
Got questions? Here are the most common queries we’re sent about the course…
How long do I get access for?
Through purchasing the course you’re guaranteed lifetime (or as long as the course exists/is on sale, and we have zero intention of folding it!) access. You can take it once, twice, three times…or as many times as you want.
Is the course mobile-friendly?
Whilst it’s possible to take the course on tablets and mobile devices, you’re going to get the best experience taking it on Google Chrome, on a stable broadband connection.
Do I have to write a full script while taking the course?
Whilst we highly recommend writing AS you move your way through the course modules, it’s not essential. Invariably you’ll have a lot of ideas for movie scripts while taking it, so we strongly recommend jotting down notes and keep track of all your loglines as you go.
How many hours does it take to complete the course? Is there “live” feedback, or a human teacher involved at all?
If you complete a full 120-page screenplay as advised, we’d estimate that completing the course and script will take in excess of 100 hours. And that’s before you get to the Bonus Materials. On the flip side, if you want to speed through the course that is probably achievable (though not recommended) within 20 hours. The course is a self-learning one, exclusively. No live teaching is included. Our innovative quiz system keeps you on your toes, self-marks you, and checks you’re taking on board the information.
I’m brand new to screenwriting, is the course for me?
100%. Our course is structured and aimed specifically at new screenwriters just starting out, and intermediate ones who maybe have lost their way and need a refresher. Don’t worry, as long as you’ve seen a solid number of movies in your life (which you surely have, if you’ve got this far) the course will give you the solid foundation you need.
Do I need special software to write my movie?
Whilst it’s not absolutely essential to write using specialist screenwriting software, life is going to be a lot easier if you do. Final Draft is the industry’s go-to choice in terms of software which formats your script correctly as you write. However there are plenty of free and paid alternatives.
