Robert Tobin – The Seven Essential Elements of a Successful Screenplay
“Rob is blessed with unique skills both literary and cinematic. His creative instincts are first-rate.”
-Paul Levine, bestselling novelist
This user-friendly, cutting edge workshop teaches the seven essential elements of successful screenplays: the hero, hero’s flaw, hero’s ally, opponent, lifechanging event, enabling circumstances and jeopardy.
Rob uses his highly informative and entertaining style to explore and explain terms and concepts not discussed in even the most celebrated screenwriting workshops.
It is essential to not just use these essential elements in your screenplays, but to create the correct relationship between them. Just as walls, floors and ceilings must be in correct relationship to each other to form a house, these essential elements must be in correct relationship to each other to create an exciting, structurally sound, and commercially viable story.
“The difference between a waiter and a writer is a single letter and a million words,” Rob often says. “But simply writing a million words will do you no good unless you know how to structure your story, how to identify the building blocks and how to use them. Otherwise you might as well be writing a telephone book.”
Having read more than 5,000 screenplays, Rob’s encountered more than his share of “telephone books” and is anxious to help you make your screenplay the best it can be.

More information about Self Help:
Self-help or self-improvement is a self-guided improvementóeconomically, intellectually, or emotionallyóoften with a substantial psychological basis.
Many different self-help group programs exist, each with its own focus, techniques, associated beliefs, proponents and in some cases, leaders.
Concepts and terms originating in self-help culture and Twelve-Step culture, such as recovery, dysfunctional families, and codependency have become firmly integrated in mainstream language.
Self-help often utilizes publicly available information or support groups, on the Internet as well as in person, where people in similar situations join together.
From early examples in self-driven legal practice and home-spun advice, the connotations of the word have spread and often apply particularly to education, business,
psychology and psychotherapy, commonly distributed through the popular genre of self-help books.
According to the APA Dictionary of Psychology, potential benefits of self-help groups that professionals may not be able to provide include friendship,
emotional support, experiential knowledge, identity, meaningful roles, and a sense of belonging.
