More Testimonials from Jim’s Former Students

Jim Mercurio is a whirlwind of energy and enthusiasm, a bracing blast of insight into how to make every scene, every line of dialogue, every beat and every blade of grass serve your story.

Seeing a movie — or better yet, your own script — through Jim’s eyes is like playing a round of golf with Arnold Palmer. Moves you never imagined are revealed, and techniques you thought you knew cold are plumbed to greater depths.

To truly appreciate Jim’s enthusiasm and generosity you must experience it firsthand, which I wholeheartedly recommend.

Immerse yourself and emerge a transformed writer.

John Dummer

Jim’s approach is not dogmatic … There’s plenty of room for questions, differing points of view and input from attendees … (it’s) a thought-provoking, dynamic workshop guaranteed to push your creative boundaries.
