David returns to give us the rest of his talk - Part 2 for those who attended in February - on the primary colours of story where he'll talk a lot more about character, story and structure.

This workshop is taken from David's new book, The Primary Colours of Story, which is available to order now from all good bookshops.


Every story is a conversation between a writer and a receiver. In this intensive workshop, using clips and examples, David will demonstrate how this simple premise is at the heart of every story ever told.

If you'd like to understand more about how the events of your stories are driven by decisions and actions taken by your characters this workshop is for you. David's expert advice will show you how to find the right balance between plot and character that you really need to know. It's a new way forward if you're feeling a bit overwhelmed by story planning/plotting and need a revolutionary new way of approaching your stories. David will present for about an hour and a half and then he'll be happy to answer your questions.

David has written four books on the subject of story theory, including his bestseller: The Story Book (2010) and his upcoming The Primary Colours of Story (2020). This workshop will introduce his ground-breaking theory and lead us in practical exercises that will show us how to apply the theory to any story we'll write.

David Baboulene is a story consultant for film and television. He is also a published author of nine books, a scriptwriter and filmmaker in his own right, and a Ph.D. academic of story theory. His research into the workings of narrative has proven how the power of every story lies in the way it resonates with a human mind. He has spent two decades defining the substance of story and developing a set of tools and methods for understanding and harnessing the power in a story.
