9780962580390: Reading for a Living: How to Be a Professional Story Analyst for Film and Television

What makes a movie great? Perhaps even more crucial, who decides what makes it great - before it gets made into a movie? The entertainment industry's top executive decision-makers are always looking for a great story. But they don't have time to read every screenplay or book themselves. Instead, they often rely on story analysts, or readers, who become the first to read and pass judgment on submissions. Story analysts' reports ("coverages") help form a basis for executive decisions.

Now, for the first time, training for readers is easy to find, easy to do, low cost, and comprehensive. READING FOR A LIVING reveals all: how to get the job and how to do it well. READERS: Learn what makes a story great. Earn extra income while pursuing another career. Gain valuable insight into the industry. Train to be a story editor, Director of Development, or other high-level executive. DEVELOPMENT EXECS: Make sure your readers are educated. Review your own story analysis skills. WRITERS: Find out what readers and executives want. Review your fundamental writing skills.
