Peter Russell

For 15 years Peter Russell has been a story doctor in Hollywood, working with on projects like The Da Vinci Code (SONY), working for companies like IMAGINE (Einstein), for PARTICIPANT (Food, Inc.), for WALDEN FILMS (Chronicles of Narnia), for CBS Television's Movies of the Week, for HBO, VIACOM, and scores more. Peter recently helped shape Brian Gazer's PELE, (coming out in the spring of 2015). Peter also works with the most talented writers and producers in the business. His knowledge of story comes out of the years spent reading over 7,000 scripts for the studios. As Peter discerned the patterns of great story, he began to share them, and that began his career as a consultant. In 2004 Peter was invited to have the privilege of teaching at UCLA's Entertainment Division of the Extension School where he's taught thousands of students how to tell great cinematic stories. He was named Teacher Of The Year in 2009. Peter was recently been hired by Pepperdine University's Seaver College to teach 'Writing The One Hour Pilot' starting this January for their MFA program. Peter offers his own classes now at howmovieswork.com - not only online classes (where he teaches you personally) but also live in Venice, California. A book based on the story discoveries he and his partner Cecilia Najar have made is coming out soon from a major trade publisher: THE HIDDEN PATTERNS OF HIT CINEMATIC STORY.
