Naomi Beaty

I'm a screenwriting teacher and screenplay consultant working with writers, producers, and directors at all levels to develop their film and TV projects. I've read thousands of scripts and worked with hundreds of writers, first in development at Madonna and Guy Oseary’s Maverick Films, and currently through group workshops and one-on-one coaching.

I worked alongside Blake Snyder on his second book, Save the Cat! Goes to the Movies and I also taught Save the Cat! workshops in Los Angeles and online. I've worked as a writer-for-hire on film pitch packages, book adaptations, and screenplays for producers locally and internationally. And most recently I created the "Idea to Outline" and “Finish Your Screenplay” workshops, and wrote "Logline Shortcuts: Unlock your story and pitch your screenplay in one simple sentence" and "The Screenplay Outline Workbook."
