9781453673966: Scriptease: The Hollywood Screenwriter's Little Black Book

Scriptease goes beyond structure and character development, illustrating how conflict, stakes, and levels of action integrate into every successful screenplay. Scriptease uses a show-and-prove style, directly linking the screenwriting process to the Hollywood studio system. Every rule and lesson points back to the desires and needs of the reader, the important first point of contact between a script and the directors, producers, and actors.

About the Author:

Tarantino started out in a video store. Kevin Smith shot "Clerks" in the same convenience store where he once worked. I followed my friend and sometime co-screenwriter to the badlands of Hollywood, landing in the shallow end of the movie-making pond, where the most dangerous, hungry, and ruthless fish are found. My official job title was Assistant Development Executive. My work duties included making coffee, picking up dry-cleaning, but also reading the hundreds of scripts dropped off every week, and providing coverage for each one. It was here I learned the true power and import of the "reader," the gatekeeper of every script. I have had three scripts optioned, and have also been hired to write adaptations, a feature-length film and another for an animated series. I've consulted on individual screenplays, and for various production companies. I've read thousands of scripts for screenwriting competitions and have spoken about screenwriting at conferences across the US. Join the Scriptease Blog: http://scripteasebook.wordpress.com/
