Every film starts with a screenplay, and every screenplay must tell a provocative story, written according to the expectations of the film business. Survival Guide for Screenwriters is a field guide for entry into the enticing craft of screenwriting, an everything-you-need-to-know primer that tells aspiring writers how to get in on the action. The good news is that, in an increasingly visual world, the market for screenplays has grown exponentially. The even better news is that with this practical, succinct, and userfriendly guide, it just became easier to cash in. Screenwriting is a craft that demands a very specific format and standard expectations of structure. That is part of what this guide covers as it takes readers step-by-step through every facet of creating and marketing the perfect--and perfectly saleable--screenplay. Beginning with story origins, the book covers plot, scenes, characters, dialogue, screenplay models, and format. It also covers the business side of the game, including presentation and networking. Finally, it previews the writer's life--what one can expect if they follow this exciting, unpredictable trade.
