Blake Snyder Story Workshop
BLAKE SNYDER passed away suddenly August 4, 2009, from cardiac arrest. There was no one like him and all who knew him know that. No one more enthusiastic, more giving, more truly interested in “you”. He will live on in his films and his books, and in the advice that will never grow old, with the spirit that will continue to thrive and inspire. His story resonates with all who loved him, and your stories will resonate thanks to his love for you.
BLAKE SNYDER In his 20-year career as a screenwriter and producer, Blake Snyder has sold dozens of scripts, including co-writing Blank Check, which became a hit for Disney, and Nuclear Family for Steven Spielberg.
His book, Save the Cat! The Last Book on Screenwriting You’ll Ever Need, was published in May, 2005, and is now in its eleventh printing. It has prompted “standing room only” appearances by Blake in New York, Los Angeles, London, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Vancouver, Toronto, and Barcelona. Apparently it is not quite the last book on screenwriting you’ll ever need, as the eagerly awaited sequel, Save the Cat! Goes to the Movies: The Screenwriter’s Guide to Every Story Ever Told, was published in October, 2007 – shooting to #1 in the “Screenwriting,” “Screenplay,” and “Movies History and Criticism” categories on Amazon.com.
Blake’s method has become the “secret weapon” of many development executives, managers, and producers for its precise, easy, and honest appraisal of what it takes to write and develop stories that resonate. Save the Cat! The Last Story Structure Software You’ll Ever Need has codified this method in an easy to use CD-Rom. Blake is a member of the Writers Guild of America, west. Please join Blake Snyder at his 45 min workshop at CTN-X09.
