"I just wanted to say, thank you. I was skeptical about buying into your class. I really need some new equipment on my project boat. BUT... It was the lesson on what makes an audience cry. I write rom coms, and THIS is the one thing that no class has ever explained - how to make people cry at the end. And the funny thing is, I got this tip from a comedy writer. Keep that part. It is a very good tip, and that alone was worth the $900... The whiteboards, can't find that in any other class... I already found a way to revise a feature film script to make people cry with the father-child scene. I had been stuck on that scene for ages!!!!!!"

"I have been studying screenwriting for a couple of years and have literally taken over 20+ writing courses, read just about all of the screenwriting "expert" books and listened to countless podcasts, YouTube videos, etc. Although I was hesitant at first -- believing I would only receive the same level of "theoretical" education I've received before -- something about Michael's personality made me trust him. I'm glad I did. No book, podcast, online or in-person class has broken down screenwriting the way Michael does. The practical advice coupled with his in-depth knowledge has truly made me a better writer. I will never recommend anything else to an aspiring screenwriter that is not this course."

-Valerie H.


"As somebody who's worked at two major studios and for the most successful TV producer of all time... as well as taught school and done instructional design of e-Learning courses, I'm thoroughly impressed by Michael Jamin's sitcom writing course. I originally signed up because I immediately sensed his sincerity and commitment to sharing his vast knowledge of the comedy writing process. But by taking the course and starting to apply what I've learned to improve my own development slate of TV and feature projects, I can truly say that I've struck gold! The online space is rife with courses from entertainment professionals who are great at what they do... yet not so great at guiding others step-by-step (and with brutally honest, insider information) through the complex creative and business processes. But Michael Jamin is a rare exception in that, from live-action to animation, network to cable, and streaming to YouTube, this writer, producer, and showrunner is also something that a lot of others aren't. A GREAT TEACHER!”

-Bruce G.


"I love this class! It’s been great. I was in the top 6% of NBC WOTV last year, so to get better I took a couple of classes from other organizations. But for me, this course has been the best! It helped me understand a lot of sitcom concepts better and provided actionable techniques for plotting and writing effectively. And no BS or fluff to be found. Top shelf stuff.”

-Dave C.


"This course helped me to think of structure and characters in a new, yet familiar way. Not only does this course teach you, but you get to see first hand from a working showrunner as he breaks down scripts and explain how a writers room works, which will be valuable in the future. This course is by far the best one out there, better than the Aaron Sorkin Masterclass, and worth the money.

-Fred T.


“Michael Jamin takes the writing process and distills it down to the most impactful essentials. Breaking it into simple and easy-to-understand steps to a completed script. As a working professional, he provides an insight into the business of sitcom writing that you can’t get in the classroom. I now feel I have the skills, knowledge, and confidence to jump into a writer’s room and start writing!”
