Guidelines for Creating Blockbusters


Gene Del Vecchio

Outlines the essential principles needed to help you craft highly successful stories from engaging concept all the way through relatable characters and enticing action and humor. Based upon the insightful new book, Creating Blockbusters!, it includes new research that outlines what audiences expect from storytelling. It's as close as you'll get to the DNA of effective narrative to help you maximize broad audience appeal through marketable artistry. The book and seminar offer a practical, 11-step program for developing screenplays, writing novels, and inventing other story-based franchises.

    Gene was an excellent speaker and a fountain of knowledge! Just listening to Gene and seeing all of the other writers gave me the boost that I needed to get back to writing again!

    Many in the audience told me this was the best speaker in a year. I think Gene Del Vecchio really knows his stuff and related it well to his audience of writers.
