Overview

The short film is a unique narrative art form that, while lending itself to experimentation, requires tremendous discipline in following traditional filmic considerations. This book takes the student and novice screenwriter through the storytelling process- from conception, to visualization, to dramatization, to characterization and dialogue- and teaches them how to create a dramatic narrative that is at once short (approximately half an hour in length) and complete. Exercises, new examples of short screenplays, and an examination of various genres round out the discussion.

NEW TO THE THIRD EDITION: new screenplays, a chapter on rewriting your script, and a chapter on the future of short films

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Cooper and Dancyger (both film, New York U.) characterize the short film as a unique narrative art form that lends itself to experimentation but requires tremendous discipline. They lead student and novice screenwriters through the storytelling process from conception through visualization, dramatization, and characterization to dialogue. The goal, they say, is to be both brief and complete. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
