Max Adams

Max Adams is an author and award winning screenwriter. She has written for Columbia Pictures, Sony Pictures, Tri-Star Pictures, Hollywood Pictures, Touchstone Pictures, Walt Disney Studios, & Universal Pictures – and a couple others to remain unnamed because no one around here wants to get black listed. Oops.

She is a former volunteer AFI Alumni reader and WGAw online mentor, has appeared as a speaker at AMPAS, USC, and Film Arts Foundation, is a former University of Utah and New York Film Academy instructor, is the author of The New Screenwriter's Survival Guide, and is the founder of two international online screenwriting workshops including the semi-notorious 5150.



In addition to screenwriting, Max is a published author, journalist, short fiction writer, essayist, humorist, and produced playwright & radio writer.

Cristiano Yeong

Cris Yeong has been an integral part of the 5150 & AFW Team since 2011. Cris is native to China and lives in Suzhou City with his wife Susan and his two children, Joy and Qianyi.

Cris provides integral support in AFW classes and in the 5150 Workshop. (Without Cris, TheAFW – and Max – would probably both collapse under the workload.)

Cris believes it is an honor to work with Max and everyone in the AFW & 5150 family. We believe it is an honor to have Cris with us.
