Robert Ellis: John Truby on Robert Ellis

John Truby, Screenwriter, Director, Lecturer, Author

"If you want a master class in how to write strong narrative drive, especially on how to weave a complex but intense plot, take a look at the novels of Robert Ellis. Everyone of them is just fantastic. Again, what you want to look for -- get under the surface, go under the hood and see how he's doing it. What you'll see are some of exactly the same techniques we talked about today, like the intense desire line of the hero, like having more than one opponent, including a main opponent who is responding to what the hero does. Again and again, he uses all of these techniques and the payoff is tremendous."
