    Power-Charge your Screenwriting

    Seger's ADVANCED SCREENWRITING speaks to those who've written a number of scripts and are ready for something more challenging ¿ and rewarding ¿ than the basics, which she certainly covers very well in her other books. It's rather like turning to improv after you've thoroughly learned theory and structure ¿ a breath of fresh air made more freeing by the fact that it's built on a solid foundation. Dr. Seger's own background and scholarship, which includes a Doctorate and three Master's degress, plus her vast experience as a script consultant for 25 years enables her to bring you the tried and true principles of story-telling, which have not changed over the millennia, regardless of the medium through which they're told. Linda's encouragement and enthusiasm for the medium of film is contagious. Couple these together and you have a book to both inform and inspire you to take your writing up to Academy Award level.
