Jeff Kitchen is a brilliant dramatist and writer.
He’s been teaching and guiding screenwriters for many years. His ability to analyze story and structure is profound. Jeff’s writing techniques and teaching have been invaluable tools in my own creative work. His attention to character, process and form have informed all of my work and will continue to do so. I start every script with the simple question that Jeff asks daily, “What do you want to leave the audience with?” The question and Jeff’s teaching form the foundation for compelling, honest work.
