In Writing the Character-Centered Screenplay, Andrew Horton, a film scholar and successful screenwriter, provides the definitive work on the character-based screenplay. Exceptionally wide-ranging-covering American, international, mainstream and "off-Hollywood" films, as well as television-it offers both creative strategies and essential information. He takes the reader step-by-step through the screenwriting process, starting with the development of multi-dimensional characters and continuing through to rewrite. Finally, he includes a wealth of information about contests, fellowships, and film festivals.
Esposing a new, character-based approach to screenwriting, this engaging, insightful work will prove an essential guide to all those involved in the writing and development of film scripts.
