So... 
you’d like to be a screenwriter!

Or at the very least, you’d like to learn more about it and find out if screenwriting is something you’d like to pursue.

Fantastic! 

You may even be a different kind of storyteller not specifically interested in screenwriting, but you'd like an opportunity to elevate your skills by studying the art and science of creative writing from a screenwriter's perspective. That's great too! 

The fact is that novelists, playwrights, video game designers, comic book artists and creative writers of all kinds can get something valuable out of studying screenwriting with Sighthound Studio - and so can you!

Testimonials

Luck was with me the day I found an online notice for Jordan Morris’ screenwriting course offered through Sighthound Studio. My writing had been in other literary forms but within the first minutes of his course -The Fundamentals of Screenwriting- I knew that screenwriting was for me! Jordan is the kind of instructor we all wish for- he’s passionate about sharing his knowledge, he has the integrity to keep it real, and he cares about his students. Since taking the screenwriting course, I’ve had my movie idea selected for the Pitchfest at the Forest City Film Festival (2018). That opportunity led to interest from a director, producer and agent. I am now working on a script and am confident that I can sell it!

Screenwriting is not easy. Many who fall in love with the idea of becoming a screenwriter don't really know what to expect and quit after realizing it is much more challenging than they imagined. Our first goal - and the one we take most seriously - is to teach you what to expect, to temper your expectations and to give you realistic goals that you can actually achieve. That's the hard part. Everything else comes with time. We'll also do our very best to help you elevate the quality of your writing by sharing tools and strategies that can help you find success, however you define it. And hey, let's try to have some fun along they way because if this becomes nothing more than a chore... why bother?

MY NAME IS Jordan Morris

I've always loved movies. But it wasn't until much later in life, that I got my first chance to work in film. After years of working in live theatre I was hired as an actor on an indie film and after proving I had other useful skills, became production designer and eventually, a producer of that film! I was hooked! 

After writing, producing and co-directing several films, I was then given an opportunity to instruct a screenwriting course for Western University's Continuing Studies Campus and immediately fell in love with teaching filmmaking skills as well.  

Ive spent the last 6 years focused solely on writing and screenwriting in particular. My goal is to present as much practical material to my students and those I mentor as is possible. Helping you reach your goals helps me reach mine.

Authentic storytelling is the foundation of powerful public speaking, effective selling, personal and professional persuasion, social media influencing, teaching and - in general terms - your key to making an impact on the world around you.

So... if you'd like to learn how to tell better stories that entertain, inspire and SELL...  I'd like to help!
