This course is life-changing!

I took this class to help understand how to write transformational journies for my characters. Not only did it give me those skills, but it also offers true insight into how to tell relatable stories with true power. It has changed the way I write and think about writing…for the better!

Profound Screenplays is an AMAZING course

The movie examples and Hal's analyses were spot on. The layering process for creating transformational characters was the most helpful for me, as I've struggled with this forever. I think I've got it down now. Yay! I have a couple of screenplays I intend to rewrite using this process to make them more profound. Thank you!

John P. Hallar's Review

The class was great. I learned a lot, especially about laying out the format in a script to make it more profound.

Trust the Process

I started with a vague idea and ended with a solid outline. Every assignment encouraged me to not be "perfect" but to go with a best guess - which gave me the freedom to keep moving forward. Many of the assignments also challenged me as a writer and I was surprised how, in the end, everything came together.

This course if fantastic!

By taking a course about writing a script using the Profound Script Map, it has added clarity to my script definition, organization, and quality. The Profound content development into the Map is not the only benefit I am getting from this course. The details in the course drive my rewriting before I am finished. I find myself cutting out extraneous material that I never needed. Thank you.

Best Class Ever for Script Writing...The Profound Screenplay

Often times, I've experienced different ways of teaching. Thanks to Hal and his way of teaching, I found myself breaking through after 1/4 of the class! Hal has a way of giving and then explaining how to apply the lessons he offers. He makes things clear to me and I understand the reasons behind the lessons. Makes perfect sense and clarity. Thank you Hal and Cheryl

You need to know what makes a movie "profound" & "transformational" in order to create one.

Taking the Profound movie course is the same as living a profound movie experience. It'll change you in ways that enable you to succeed at writing the kinds of movies that change people. Sound familiar? Isn't that the character arc you want to go through? I've wanted to write profound movies ever since I took Persis Fieldson to see "Old Yeller" in 1960.

Challenging, Well thought out, informative

There is a lot to recommend in this course. It challenges you to go deeper into the story you are trying to tell and make you think quite a bit about what you are trying to say about human beings and the way they act.

Most complete and detailed writing course I've ever taken.

What a gift this course was! I started out with a title and a vague idea of my story. Hal Croasmun's brilliant lessons took me step by step through a process that focused on how my play could make a 'profound difference' to an audience. Three weeks later, I have the outline of what I believe will be a deeper, more engaging play than I would have written. One that will move audiences profoundly.
