The GodFather of STORY Returns to Vancouver

    VANCOUVER, April 16 /CNW/ - Robert McKee returns to Canada with his
famous STORY seminar June 5, 6, & 7, 2009 with an offer that BC wordsmiths of
every stripe will have trouble refusing: A chance to experience the ultimate
master class for screenwriters, filmmakers, TV writers, novelists, industry
executives, actors, producers, directors and playwrights.
    This is the only Canadian presentation in 2009 - a limited opportunity to
join the ranks of Julia Roberts, Gary Sinise, Peter Jackson, Meg Ryan, Diane
Keaton, David Bowie and John Cleese (among others).
    Graduates of this three-day master class have won 28 Oscars, 141 Emmys
and a Pulitzer Prize for writing. Most recently, Andrew Stanton took home the
Academy Award for Best Animated Feature for Wall-E. Other McKee graduate
credits include: The Daily Show, Finding Nemo, A Beautiful Mind, Lord of the
Rings I, II, III, Iron Man, Law & Order, Nixon, CSI, Grey's Anatomy, Finding
Nemo, Shrek and many, many more.
    Each 3-day Story event runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday, beginning at
9:00am and closing at 8:30pm each day. The cost is $595 plus GST.
    Two-time Academy Award-winning screenwriter William Goldman wrote, "It's
three full days over a single weekend, and no one feels cheated when he's
done. I wish he'd been around when I started writing for a living."
