BLOCKBUSTER REVIEWS: 
"This guy is the best script doctor in the movie industry, and this program makes you tell a good story whether you want to or not. A winner. If you even toy with the idea of storytelling, you must have this product. Highly recommended." 
John C. Dvorak, PC Magazine 

"I'm not exaggerating: Truby's Blockbuster revolutionized how I work. It's the simplest way I've ever found to build structure, character and theme. If you use a computer to write screenplays, you'll want Blockbuster." 
Laurence Dworet, screenwriter Outbreak 

"Blockbuster is an ingenious and multilevel guide through the maze of story organization... way ahead of any other writing tool I know of." 
Jeff Arch, screenwriter Sleepless in Seattle

" I think of all of them Truby's the best. I actually use Blockbuster, because I think he's really good. For my taste, his stuff cuts the deepest, and allows you to develop the most detailed structure and outline." 
Larry Wilson, screenwriter Beetlejuice, The Addams Family 

"Blockbuster is all that it is advertised to be, a virtual
screenwriting school, and a great one at that." 
Skip Press, The Complete Idiot's Guilde to Screenwriting 

"As a result of Blockbuster, I won a Gold Award at the Charleston Film Festival, and a Bronze Award at the Houston Film Festival in the Comedy category." 
Mike Ellis, screenwriter 

"My pleasure to let you know an agent has picked up three of my screenplays. All were written by the guidelines of Blockbuster." 
James Russell, screenwriter 

"Truby's Blockbuster provides a structure both to elicit and keep track of the multitude of ideas and details that emerge in transforming the first vague musings into the finished project." 
L. R. Shannon, New York Times  

"Among the legions of screenplay guru devotees, few would deny that John Truby is the most cutting edge of the lot. For success, Truby and his software is a match made in screenwriting heaven... No, Blockbuster will not solve all of writing's perennial ills, but it does bring the cure several giant steps closer."

"I'm not exaggerating:
Truby's Blockbuster
revolutionized how I work."

 -Laurence Dworet

Screenwriting Software

John Truby has brought his screenwriting expertise to more than 30,000 students, teaching the art form all over the world. Now he's bundled his critically acclaimed approach to story writing into a complete screenwriting program. Truby's Blockbuster program walks you through the intricacies of storytelling, allowing you to learn as your write.

Blockbuster has emerged as Hollywood's premier screenwriting program. Beginners as well as serious screenwriters are offered proven techniques to advance their level of writing with help from the best in the business:

"Among the legions of screenplay guru devotees, few would deny that John Truby is the most cutting edge of the lot. For success, Truby and his software program is a match made in screenwriting heaven..."
 -Wade Major, Entertainment Today

Genre-based Screenwriting Program

Truby's Blockbuster software is the only one of its kind tailored to each specific genre. Action screenwriters are taught how to write for action movies, and comics for comedies. From the horror screenwriting program to software for love stories, sitcoms and science fiction, each Blockbuster program is geared directly toward the genre itself.

Truby's Unique Approach to Storytelling

John Truby's Blockbuster screenwriting program focuses on the philosophy of writing the story. The program takes users through the complexities of character development, the structural order of individual scenes and Truby's 22 building blocks of every great story. Blockbuster is by no means a "paint by numbers" approach to storytelling. Truby's screenwriting program teaches writers how to turn original ideas into completely developed storylines fit for the big screen.
