As screenwriters come to be seen as the storytellers of the age this book presents the fundamentals of writing a really compelling screenplay. Parker's new approach to writing for film and TV covers everything from finding an idea to writing a finished piece, containing advice on how to apply creative vision and the needs of the market. Parker breaks from the dominant concerns of act structure and character-driven narratives with a six-part framework comprising story, plot, dramatic structures, narrative and style.
