Richard Walter, was the chair of the UCLA Screenwriting Program, which is the most successful screenwriting program in the world. It’s harder to get into this program than it is to get accepted to Harvard Law School, and for good reason. Richard is recently retired from teaching at UCLA, but that doesn’t mean you can benefit from his teaching. Richard has published what I consider to be the best of the best instructional books on screenwriting, titled, “The Essentials of Screenwriting.” Richard also holds live, interactive online screenwriting workshops, and you can get on a waiting list for an upcoming workshop at his website
Richard is a wealth of story and cinematic wisdom, and everything he says has high entertainment value.
