Acclaimed upon its spring debut, Chamberlain’s book on the Nutshell Technique was instantly named an Amazon Hot New Release, and Hollywood insiders and screenwriting authorities have sought out Chamberlain for her insights ever since.
In a recent interview in Creative Screenwriting magazine, which is one of the leading voices covering the screenwriting industry, Chamberlain talks about her radically different approach to classical storytelling structure and how she devised the lessons in The Nutshell Technique. Her method earned Chamberlain praise from Creative Screenwriting Editor Sam Roads, who says about her book, “it’s a clever, fresh way of analyzing structure. I’ve added The Nutshell Technique to my own writing toolbox.”
The lessons and tactics in The Nutshell Technique come from studying hundreds of feature films and more than a decade of working with screenwriters on how to improve their craft.
“I discovered in my work as script doctor that 99 percent of first-time screenwriters failed to tell a story,” Chamberlain explains. “I created the Nutshell Technique to give writers a straightforward, visual means to identify whether or not they had all the elements required to successfully tell a story.”
Fellow screenwriters are praising Chamberlain for pulling no punches when it comes to shining a light on how to craft a screenplay that sings. “This is a book you can begin working from immediately,” adds Glenn Gers, who wrote Fracture starring Ryan Gosling and Anthony Hopkins. “It’s a detailed, focused, ferociously practical method for structuring a screenplay. Author Jill Chamberlain shows you exactly how to get the work done.”
