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 month (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 individuals recognize their unique window on the world, and turn it into powerful stories only they can tell. He is the creator of FAST Screenplay, the world’s most comprehensive step-by-step professional screenplay development system, the author of Writing FAST: How to Write Anything with Lightning Speed, and the host of “The Screenwriting Show”, a free weekly livestream show on YouTube that takes a deep-dive into creativity, storytelling, and the business of screenwriting.

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 series for schools, and co-authored a book forApple (yes, that Apple) on the iMovie software.

Jeff’s goal is to build an independent film studio that produces multiple films per year with production teams worldwide. When he couldn’t find viable material, he sat down to reverse-engineer 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 10,000 writers globally, and has discovered insights about imagination and creativity that are applicable to any industry. He is currently working on a new resource for screenwriters, a new nonfiction book, and three new feature film projects.
