The Audience and You: A guide to writing screenplays with emotional impact’ will make your screenplay, pilot, and overall writing career better. Quickly.


Most screenwriting advice focuses on ‘story’ and downplays the importance of the emotional experience for the audience and the writer. Tim’s book explores what really matters – a writer’s emotional connection with their script, and finding ways to engage an audience. If the greatest ‘story’ every written can’t make a group of strangers feel something…it will fail. Every single time.


Tim has read thousands of scripts, and his insights, tips and observations are now gathered in a book designed to help you quickly improve your command of craft.


Written in Tim’s honest, personal, sometimes blunt and funny style, this book delivers simple and effective ways to understand your true power as a writer, offers tips on creating compelling characters, and challenges you to explore your own, unique emotional toolbox to connect your script with the people who matter most – your audience.


If you have dreams of being paid to write scripts, that give people an entertaining, emotionally satisfying experience – you know, the kind you like when you watch something - you need to read this book.
