Some years ago, as a professional writer, Linda was exploring how to construct flashback and ensemble films. At the time, none of the screenwriting books explained it, insisting all good stories contained one hero and one chronological storyline. She knew this was wrong because at the time she was creating multiple storyline works for TV.
Since no one was providing answers on nonlinear and ensemble, she had a go herself, and wrote Screenwriting Updated: New and Conventional Ways of Writing for the Screen. The book was an immediate international hit and, along with its much-expanded successor The 21st Century Screenplay, is now used by professionals and leading film schools across the globe. Linda is now bringing her famous two-day seminar on New Structures in Scriptwriting in film and TV to AFTRS.*
Come and explore why so many professional writers find the conventional Hollywood three act one hero chronological script model insufficient.
“Linda Aronson is one of the great and important voices on screenwriting”
Linda Seger author of Making a Good Script Great
"Anyone who has heard Linda Aronson speak about screenwriting knows that the insight that she can offer YOU, about YOUR screenplay, is extraordinary. I have personally heard all of the so called ‘script gurus’ speak, and I can tell you, if you want advanced professional script insight, Linda is the person for you. This is especially true if your story is struggling to fit into the traditional three act structure, or if you have multiple protagonists. "
