The Nutshell Technique

“Jill Chamberlain’s Nutshell Technique goes way beyond tired old beat sheet ‘formulas’ and instead guides you to organically write the story you want to tell.”
― Callum Greene, Producer
Star Wars Episode 9, Crimson Peak, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Script Consultant Jill Chamberlain discovered in her work that 99% of new screenwriters failed to tell a story. What the 99% do instead is present a situation. Knowing the difference is critical for becoming a successful screenwriter! Which is why Jill created the Nutshell Technique®, a simple, straightforward method for getting straight to the guts of your story and ensuring that it works dramatically.

Since its publication in 2016, Jill’s book, The Nutshell Technique: Crack the Secret of Successful Screenwriting, was an instant classic. It is the go-to manual many professionals swear by, and it’s already on the syllabus for courses at University of Houston, University of Notre Dame, and the world renowned screenwriting program at Columbia University.
