David’s research into narrative theory has demonstrated how the power of every story lies in the way a story resonates with a human mind. Writers must work with knowledge gaps and subtext to trigger a psychological response.

The Primary Colours of Story is the practical application of his ground-breaking insights into how stories grip and engage a human mind.

Feedback from David’s seminars:

“Every session provided a ‘eureka moment’ for me; another sudden insight into ways to improve my stories and find direction for me as a writer.” 

“Receiving a publishing deal was a dream turned reality. In my acknowledgement page is written: David Baboulene: I did it, and you are a heck of a teacher!”
Kerri Cuevas, Author Deadly Kisses (2013)

“David Baboulene is truly a master when it comes to the science behind storytelling.”
Craig Hinde, Producer/Director.

“David’s approach to story really gets under the bonnet of your specific narrative, rather than relying on tired old structural dictates. Highly recommended!”
Alex Marx, Scriptwriter.

“We cannot recommend David Baboulene highly enough. His insights and expertise on story creation have been invaluable, helping us get the script of ‘Hallo Joe’ to the point where we’ve sold the option and look forward to full production”
Mark Halliley & Perry Schaffer, Scriptwriters.
