Hi! I recently looked at my site and wondered if it was still 2006. So I’m currently rebuilding. It should be up later this year (and it should be much more helpful).

In the meantime, check out my TED Talk below. Or join me LIVE every Thursday at 2pm for The Screenwriting Show on YouTube (link below).


A Quick Bio

Jeff Bollow is an award-winning filmmaker, best-selling author, and international speaker who is passionate about helping you recognize your unique window on the world, and turn it into powerful stories only you can tell.

He is the creator of FAST Screenplay, the world’s most comprehensive step-by-step professional screenplay development system, and the author of Writing FAST: How to Write Anything with Lightning Speed. He hosts “The Screenwriting Show”, a free weekly livestream show on YouTube that takes a deep-dive into creativity, storytelling, and the business of screenwriting, and is currently writing a new book: Breakthrough Screenwriter: How to Cut Through the Noise, Get Noticed, and Launch Your Screenwriting Career from Anywhere.

A film industry professional for over 35 years, Jeff has worked in every facet of the business, from acting in film and TV as a kid (in films such as Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead and Columbo), to directing television in New Zealand and stage plays in Sydney, to creating and running the Big Mountain Short Film Festival for five years. He won an ATOM Award in Australia for an educational filmmaking resource for schools, and authored the iMovie chapters of a book for Apple (yes, that Apple).

Jeff’s goal is to build an independent film studio that produces multiple films each year with production teams worldwide. When he couldn’t find viable material, he reverse-engineered the complete creative process to guide writers from the spark of an idea all the way to a producible screenplay. He has worked with over 12,000 writers globally, and has discovered insights about imagination and creativity that are applicable to any industry. He has given a “paradigm-shifting” TEDx Talk, and is currently working on three new game-changing resources for screenwriters, a new nonfiction book, and three new feature film projects.
