Do I Need Final Draft For the Seminar?
This software is not required for any of our seminars, but it could be very useful as you go on to apply what you’ve learned in your writing.
What is Storylogue?
Storylogue is Mr. McKee’s online learning library for writers - a writer’s practicum. Currently, the site hosts over 1,500 videos that include new lessons (not covered in his STORY Seminar) and interviews between Mr. McKee and prominent industry professionals as well as Q&A sessions between Mr. McKee and students. These videos are excellent research and learning resources and you can preview the videos offered at Storylogue.com.
When purchasing a year’s subscription as part of a Tuition Package, you receive a discount of over 40% on the standard annual membership rate. Alternatively, annual or monthly membership may be purchased from the site at any time.
Presently, the site is undergoing a massive upgrade to improve the search functionality but it won’t affect your viewing enjoyment.
