Story Academy is excellent!

The Story Academy is excellent! The opportunities I've gotten here are priceless and it feels almost unreal to have been in contact with so many big names from both Sweden and Hollywood. Thanks to The Story Academy my portfolio now includes a professionally produced TV-Show. - Salomon Tafjord

Four screenplays done

”I came in with a maximum page count of five, after my two years I'll have four screenplays done - if you'd ask me if this was possible back then, I'd say no, today I can proudly tell you it is.”

-Alexander Nikodinoski 

Producing employable scriptwriters

”I loved the focus of Story Masterclass on producing employable script writers, and using american teachers, I believe this is a very inspiring year for anyone enjoying storytelling that works!”

Increase chances to work in the industry

Story Academy, with guidance from experienced teachers and screenwriters, have given me more knowledge regarding storytelling and importance of quality on a screenplay for a great final product.

By writing a lot, read and analyze others scripts has been an essential combination for my development. To be able to pitch and summarize my concepts both written and verbal for others (like producers) has been a valuable experience as well. By daring to be bad to improve gradually during the process, I can warmly recommend the education to all who wants to develop their screenwriting and increase their chances to work in the industry.

- Viktor Klintbom

Våga ta chanser!

Jag kom till Gotland ovetandes om både utbildningens egenskaper såväl som mina egna. Till min förskräckelse så sattes det igång direkt med att skriva och läsa upp för varandra. Nu när jag är klok och erfaren kan jag säga att detta var det absolut bästa som har hänt mig!

Storyutbildningen gör något som jag inte tror att många andra manusutbildningar gör. Istället för att dra till sig en viss nisch av manusaspiranter, så går man in med inställningen; Vi ska skriva manus som tar chanser.​  Vi fick snabbt lära oss att inte ha en idé som vi ska jobba på i fem år. Utan att ha så många idéer som möjligt. Och sedan arbeta fram något som inte har gjorts tidigare.

 Jag kan som sagt bara tala av egen erfarenhet, men efter två år på denna skola har jag; Optionerat en långfilm till en av Sveriges största producenter, jobbat på en TV-serie med samma bolag och fått kontakter på Universal.

Men störst av allt: Jag vågar ta chanser

Lärare från Hollywood

Jag sökte Storyutbildningen för att lära mig vad som gör filmiska historier bra. Efter att jag kom in möttes jag av en storm av konkreta svar och aha-upplevelser. Jag ville inte missa ett enda ord från lektionerna. På Storyutbildningen fick jag lära mig om allt från koncept, struktur och dialog till mer praktiska saker som brainstorming och hur man besegrar skrivkramp. Parallellt fick jag ständigt träna på att skriva, både genom olika manusprojekt och olika skrivövningar. Tack vare lärare från Hollywood, Pitchning hos producenter i Stockholm och webbserie-projekt (som dessutom filmas) känns det nästan aldrig som att man pluggar, utan snarare som att man jobbar som manusförfattare på riktigt. Utbildningen är smart, effektiv och otroligt anpassad till skrivarbranschen. Jag kommer ärligt talat inte på något jag tycker den saknar. Det var två helt enastående år! 

-Daniel Jullander,
f.d. student, skriver idag på en bok om dialog. 

Kommersiellt manusförfattande

Det finns ett fåtal manusutbildningar i Sverige, men Storyutbildningen skiljer sig lite från mängden i min uppfattning. Den beskrivs som en utbildning i “kommersiellt manusförfattande”. Och det är den kommersiella biten som gör utbildningen så sjukt bra. Om man seriöst funderar på en karriär som manus- författare så är det extremt värdefullt att få möta business-sidan av branschen redan i skolan. Don’t get me wrong, den konstnärliga delen av skrivandet är otroligt viktig, och den överses inte på något vis på Storyutbildningen, men man får även se den lite mer praktiska delen av hur man pitchar och säljer in ett manus.

 Jag har fått personlig guidning av stora manusförfattare och manusexperter från hela världen. När man valde en liten plutt-utbildning på Gotland trodde man inte att man skulle sitta där och diskutera sina egna idéer med människor som arbetat på stora Hollywood-produktioner, men så är det.

Outstanding screenwriting program!

The outstanding screenwriting program at Storyutbildningen is a unique gift to both the students and the Swedish film and television industry. Having offered seminars there for more than three years, I am repeatedly impressed with the high caliber of instruction, the progress of the students, the strong individual support for each writer, and the professional approach taken by the entire program toward the participants and their craft. I strongly recommend Storyutbildningen to anyone serious about become a professional screenwriter in Sweden.

-Michael Hauge,
Hollywood Story Consultant, teacher, author for “How to write Screenplays that sells” & “How to pitch in 60 seconds”.

What a remarkable school!

I’ve taught and visited in many places, and was completely delighted by this unique little gem of a screenwriting school in Gotland, Sweden.

I found the students to be among the most well trained and dedicated as any I have met, anywhere. They are all passionate about their craft, and the two year curriculum prepares them well, offering up a lot of writing experience as well as a variety of perspectives on screenwriting. The students are neither all commercial in taste nor all artistic, but all mixing artistic and commercial sensibilities, each by his or her own personal recipe. Arvid Unsgaard has apparently created something that is unique in Sweden, and because it is in Sweden, unique everywhere else.

-Danny Rubin,
Screenwriter & Teacher, most famous for Groundhog day. 

International teachers!

“Since Storyutbildningen offers its students international top teachers,  I can without any doubt say that it is one of the finest script writing courses to be found in the Nordic States. You never write a script for your own sake but because you want to engage and touch the audience. This is what the students learn here at the same time as they get to develop their own unique voice. It is great fun as a Swedish script writer to be a guest teacher and a mentor at a school that sets the bar on such a high level. “ 

-Soni Jörgensen,
Screenwriter, story consultant and teacher.

Write! Shoot films!

On a rugged island in the Baltic Sea, there are talented young spirits who are eager to tell their stories to the waiting world. 

Go and do it, my students.

You´ve each been given a precious gift: your life.

Open your throats and sing from deep in your hearts. Write! Shoot films! Wake people and make them laugh and cry!

Work hard, play hard, learn your craft and catch up to your biggest dreams. And most important of all: Don´t take yourselves (or me) to seriously.- 

Onward!

Leading figures in screenwriting instruction

Having taught in comedy writing for the past several years, I cannot speak highly enough of the Storyutbildningen screenwriting program. I´m consistently impressed with the dedication of the staff and the creativity and imagination of the students as they explore a wide variety of writing forms and formats, working one-on-one with some of the leading figures screenwriting instruction. 

If you are interested in writing professionally for the screen in Sweden, you can do no better than studying at Storyutbildningen. 

- Steve Kaplan,

Hollywood comedy expert

High level of imagination

"The School in Gotland, Sweden provides an extraordinary enviroment for young screenwriters and filmmakers. 

As an American screenwriter and instructor, I was inspired by the high level of imagination and craft the students demonstrated. Teaching storytelling and moviemaking in the beautiful country not far from Bergman´s island, was one of the most fun experience I´ve had in my many years in the industry.
