Overview

The Tyranny of Story - Audience Expectations and the Short Screenplay by Ric Beairsto

offers a unique perspective on the art of storytelling, regardless of format. For writers intending to craft a successful short screenplay, this book offers a detailed and incisive presentation of the particular demands of the short screenplay form. It includes references to major Hollywood feature length screenplays, as well as numerous short screenplays in their entirety. The Tyranny of Story is both a useful analytical tool for the shaping of any story, and an unmatched aid in the drafting of a short screenplay.

This book will assist individuals and film students with the special challenges of writing short narrative screenplays.

The book was written because of the absence of any comprehensive text on the subject and the demand from Vancouver Film School's own students to provide formal reference materials related to the creation of story in short films.
