Maybe you have a great idea for a movie, and you're thinking to yourself, "Man, if I only knew how to write a screenplay." Maybe you've started your screenplay already, but you get to a certain point where you JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT! Or maybe you've already finished your screenplay, printed it out, read it over again, hated it, and burned it in your trash can (but you saved a backup). Don't give up on your dreams just yet--not until you've read this book. Over the course of his successful career as a writer and producer, Josh Miller has learned plenty about the art of screenwriting. There are no fancy tricks or shortcuts to making a great screenplay, just time-honored techniques, fundamental story elements, and one secret ingredient: you. Josh will show you how to craft a compelling story and deploy advanced techniques used by professional screenwriters, but most importantly, he'll teach you how to harness your unique voice, experience and perspective to give your screenplay real substance. Get this book, and get yourself unstuck.
