Dan Calvisi author 'Story Maps'Welcome to Act Four Screenplays, the official site of DANIEL CALVISI, professional script doctor, writing coach, and the author of the “Story Maps” method.

You may know me from one of my books, like my best-sellers, STORY MAPS: How to Write a GREAT Screenplay and STORY MAPS: TV DRAMA: The Structure of the One-Hour Television Pilot , a webinar, a speaking engagement, my writer coaching service, or you may have heard about my Story Maps Master Class program. I coach writers to suck in readers, craft fascinating characters and build iron-clad narrative structure. All of my insight into storytelling has flowed from my professional experience in the entertainment industry working as a top Story Analyst for major studios and production companies.

My mantra is CRAFT = CAREER.

Focus on your craft, first and foremost, and the commercial success will follow.

MY GUARANTEE: I promise you that if your script is ready to submit, as is, I will return it to you free of charge with a referral to one of my contacts in the industry.

Only looking for Coverage? I don’t recommend it.
