Screenwriting: Step by Step is a user-friendly, basic introduction to successful screenwriting for the student and novice screenwriter.
The text covers twelve steps to good screenwriting. It teaches students how to choose a theme, establish a central conflict, and write a story that works as drama. The book is divided into two sections: “First Steps,” which teaches students the essentials of writing drama, and “Next Steps,” which teaches the essentials of writing drama expressly for film. The author's wealth of real-world experience is evident in the text's practical advice to beginning screenwriters.
Explains cinematic principles in clear, simple, conversational prose, helping to eliminate confusion for students and jumpstart their writing process.
Includes a separate chapter on formatting so that students can write a script that is technically correct as well as artistically creative.
Offers exercises at the end of each chapter that help students clarify and reinforce the fundamentals of writing for film.
