    Descriptive info: Story Editing Philosophy.. Story Editing qna.. Story Edit Associates.. I bring with me to project consultation a wealth of experience in screenwriting and filmmaking, and an understanding of the creative process that can only come from having worked with hundreds of writers and filmmakers, students and professionals.. Most of all I bring a great love of story, and a vision of story as a living thing with its own inherent integrity.. Sadly, many screenplays go astray in the development process, as the writer gets lost in the wilds of rewriting, or worse, seeking to satisfy contradictory visions of the story.. Some so-called story editors bring the same agenda with them to each project, defined by their private vision of the ideal screenplay, which subtly undermines the writer's efforts rather than supporting them.. Since I am also a screenwriter and filmmaker, I pursue my own vision on my own work, not on yours.. Instead I  ...   a deeper understanding of the story and its becoming.. I'm a bit like a family counselor, helping the parties involved – story, writer, producer, and sometimes others – hear one another better.. Finally I give feedback that is very focused, concrete and specific, showing how the tools of screenwriting craft can be used to make the story more accessible to the audience's full emotional participation.. My role is part audience member, part coach, and part oracle.. I also have experience working with distributors, funding agencies and broadcasters, giving me a solid understanding of the marketplace.. I am the only story editor around who has also developed projects as producer, director and writer all the way through to the marketplace myself.. For me, helping creators create better (I call it being advisor to gods ) is more like play than work, which is why I continue to do it in spite of many other commitments..

    Descriptive info: Workshop Overview.. Workshop Examples.. Department of Film.. The cliché is true: life is what happens while you’re making other plans.. I never planned to be a teacher.. I was awarded an MFA by accident (because I was simply having too much fun to leave Cal Arts after completing my BFA) and didn’t expect it to be of any consequence.. I was offered my first teaching position (part-time Visiting Asst.. Professor) in the film department at Simon Fraser University a year after I graduated film school, because people there were really enthusiastic about one of my student films (.. Criminal Language.. That first year of teaching was awarded an unexpected seal of approval when films made by my students swept four of the five top prizes at the Canadian Student Film Festival in Montreal (I only had a total of about eight students).. So they kept inviting me back at SFU as a  ...   job at York University I had little more to show in terms of completed film work, but I had done a lot of learning, writing, and growing; and, oh yes, had a growing family and badly needed a steady income.. In 1995 I was hired to teach screenwriting on a one-year contract at York.. It was only during that first year that I realized that teaching is part of my being.. The following year I secured a tenure-stream position and since then it’s been my privilege to continue at York.. I find that the teacher/student relationship, in a creative field, is a precious, unique, and deeply mysterious thing: at once intimate and impersonal.. For some time I have also been teaching professional workshops as an outgrowth of my story editing work.. It’s been inspiring to interact with people from different parts of the world about a subject that inspires all of us: storytelling..
