David Freeman

Screenwriter and Educator

As a screenwriter, David has sold and optioned scripts and ideas to Sony Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Columbia Pictures, MGM, and others.  He has also been doing a lot of work in China lately –– co-writing one film and consulting on three others.

David also teaches “Beyond Structure,” one of the most popular screenwriting and script development classes in Los Angeles, London and around the world .   Many top screenwriters, directors, and Hollywood executives have been his students.  David’s approach skips theory and instead offers specific techniques – hundreds of them – that help writers, producers, and development executives create unique and emotionally layered characters, dialogue, plots and scenes. 

An in-demand international speaker and teacher, David regularly teaches and speaks across the United States, Europe, and Asia.  The MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America), which represents all the Hollywood studios, invited David speak and teach at their Beijing film conference last year, and are flying him later this year to speak at the Busan International Film Festival in Korea.  David welcomes your correspondence at davidfreeman11@gmail.com
