9781879505285: African-American Screen-Writers Now: Conversations With Hollywood's Black Pack

Hollywood is currently seeing a great influx of young African-American filmmakers who collectively are altering the face of American filmmaking. African-American Screenwriters Now brings together recent interviews with both up-and-coming and established screenwriters, some of whom also work as directors and producers, and paints a vivid picture of the opportunities and obstacles that face today's black filmmakers in Hollywood. These writers discuss their influences, their goals, the birth of stories, the writing process, getting work, and getting films made, alongside their comments on racial barriers and the portrayal of blacks in film.

Review:

Reading William Froug's Zen and the Art of Screenwriting, screenwriter Erich Leon Harris realized that, as much as he liked it, none of the writers who were interviewed was black. Not being one to complain, Harris fired off a proposal to the publishers and wound up with a deal to do his own book. While African American Screenwriters Now has a different cultural lens with which to approach the craft, this collection has the same range--from the prosaic to the passionate--as the volume that inspired it.
