9780571217823: Screenwriters' Masterclass: Screenwriters Discuss their Greatest Films

The secret of writing a successful screenplay is sought after by ever-growing numbers of scribes and enthusiasts. Screenwriters' Masterclass offers state-of-the-art advice in that line, through interviews with nineteen of the leading scriptwriters of our day whose insights are invaluable to any aspirant.Each interview guides the reader entertainingly through the creation process of the film; how the writer handled the painstaking process of creating a three-dimensional world out of their imagination; what worked - and what didn't - in the finished film; and, most importantly, why that was so. In the process, each interview is a valuable case history, offering film buffs an uncommon glimpse behind the scenes of cinema: from Oscar-winner Ted Tally, recounting life on-set with Jodie Foster and Hannibal the Cannibal on The Silence of the Lambs, to Robert Wade and Neil Purvis coming up with new ways for James Bond to Die Another Day.Represented alongside the Hollywood pros are the leading screenwriters from the US independent and European scenes, including some of the most inspiring new talents in film: from Carlos Cuaron (Y Tu Mama Tambien) and Chris Weitz (About a Boy) to Wes Anderson (Rushmore) and Alex Garland (28 Days Later).
