DEVELOPMENT Story Analysis

Stan's research for his doctoral dissertation on narrative theory, resulted in his Hollywood trade book, The Moral Premise and the multiple channels of training he developed for filmmakers and other writers.

 

As a consequence, he has become the story consultant, business plan writer, or associate producer on several dozen Hollywood based films, being pursued by as many filmmakers. Most of these are still awaiting funding or are still in development.

 

However, as a script/story consultant for over a dozen Will Smith projects, the few that have been released grossed over $1 billion at the worldwide box office, including: SEVEN POUNDS (2008), KARATE KID (2010),  MEN IN BLACK 3 (2012),  AFTER EARTH (2013), and ANNIE (2014),
