Story By The Beats with Screenwriter Naomi Beaty Copy

If you’ve ever got bogged down under your story, this session is for you.

We’ve all been there. We have too many plot threads, not enough conflict, or conflict that’s all over the place, misshapen character arcs, or a sagging middle to the story. Or all of them at once!

This session will show you how to dig yourself out of these common story problems.

Naomi Beaty is here to break down Story according to the Save the Cat framework, a screenwriting ‘beat-based’ approach to story. Naomi is one of the top experts in how to apply this structure, and she’s sharing her expertise with us in this Expert Interview.
