Overview

The author of Barbarella and other successful screenplays analyzes the basic structures of effective screenplays, from initial plot lines to realized scripts. All the essential building blocks are discussed in depth: the need for a strong premise; the roles of protagonist and antagonist; the orchestration of plot, characters and dialogue leading to a clear resolution.
