Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up
This workshop-in-a-book aims to prepare teens to complete a first short film. Each "concept" includes plot, pacing, character development, introductions to various genres, and more, and is presented in a few paragraphs followed by suggested examples in existing films and three writing exercises. The tone is chatty, avoiding formality and condescension in favor of encouragement to keep trying despite the rejection often found in the entertainment industry (Concept 100 is "You Hate Me, You Really Hate Me"). Aspiring writers hungry for more information will appreciate the recommended reading list.
