Max Timm

After two years at the Holy Cross College at the University of Notre Dame, swimming through a Liberal Arts major and watching football, Max discovered the art of filmmaking and transferred to Columbia College Chicago. He majored in screenwriting and producing at Columbia, and eventually found himself dizzy within the entertainment capital, Los Angeles. After multiple assistant positions at film distribution and advertising companies, Max stumbled upon Writers Boot Camp (WBC) in Santa Monica, CA. Graduating from its Professional Membership in 2007, Max was asked to stay with WBC as a Membership Coordinator and Instructor. After six years, working his way up to Creative Director and Director of Development, Max worked with thousands of writers on their screenplays and novels, as well as personally consulted A-List celebrities.

Both a screenwriter and novelist, Max has created a lifelong relationship with writing. His focus is within the realms of Middle Grade and Young Adult fiction, as well as movies geared toward family entertainment. He still believes James Howe's Bunnicula series is one of the finest middle grade series ever written, and that Mr. Howe's book, "The Celery Stalks at Midnight", may very well be the best book title ever.

Great course
by Marina Bendocchi Alves
This course is great. Max uses a lot of movie examples and shares stories from his own life to illustrate story points - which makes it a lot more fun and frankly much easier to really understand in depth what matters than hearing all those technical terms of screenwriting.

Great course
by Melissa Birks
Using relevant examples and in-depth knowledge of the form and function of a screenplay, Max Timm takes a writer from the germ of an idea to a full script. Especially powerful is the way he breaks down a screenplay into organizational sequences. Overall, the course is accessible, understandable, and practical. I would encourage writers to try it.
