Screenwriter's Problem Solver

Screenwriter's Problem Solver [Paperback]

Author : Field, Syd

All writing is rewriting. But what do you change, and how do you change it? All screenplays have problems. They happened to "Die Hard: With a Vengeance" and "Broken Arrow"-and didn't get fixed, leaving the films flawed. They nearly shelved "Platoon"-until Oliver Stone rewrote the first ten pages and created a classic. They happen to every screenwriter. But good writers see their problems as a springboard to creativity. Now bestselling author Syd Field, who works on over 1,000 screenplays a year, tells you step-by-step how to identify and fix common screenwriting problems, providing the professional secrets that make movies brilliant-secrets that can make your screenplay one headed for success...or even Cannes. Learn how to:
-Understand what makes great stories work
-Make your screenplay work in the first ten pages, using "Thelma & Louise" and "Dances With Wolves" as models
-Use a "dream assignment" to let your creative self break free overnight
-Make action build character, the way Quentin Tarantino does
-Recover when you hit the "wall"-and overcome writer's block forever
