I made a common mistake thinking I knew my own script simply because I wrote it. Working with Mark forces you to go much deeper than the simple text on the page.  Without this sort of work, you're winging it without even knowing it.

  • Develop the full potential of your script, before writing it
  • Understand what top directors are looking for to get attached
  • Build REAL (not contrived) character history
  • Create riveting character subtext
  • Mold characters emotionally and psychologically, before you write
  • Create extraordinary rewrites, even under crisis or a time crunch
  • And most importantly, get hired again
  • Seminars & Workshops for Writers

For Actors

I have admired Mark Travis' work with actors for many years.
