In an age where many see screenwriters as the storytellers of the new century and everyone appears to be trying to write a screenplay, this book provides the frame work for you to write a great screenplay. It goes beyond the concerns of act structure and the merits of story-driven - as opposed to character-driven - screenplays to tackle the real complexities of writing a compelling screenplay. This new edition of "The Art and Science of Screenwriting" contains: the different layouts for film, television, documentary and corporate screenplays; a detailed analysis of what is required from a premise, an outline, a step outline, a treatment and a first draft; a simple stage by stage guide to the inevitable re-write; tips on finding an agent. This new approach to writing for film and television covers everything from finding an idea to writing a finished screenplay. The author's framework, A Creative Matrix, brings together all the elements of screenplay writing - from story, character, theme and dramatic structure to plot, genre, tone and style in an understandable way that is easy to follow. His analysis includes illustrating what compromises a good thriller, identifying the different types of sit-com, and showing the qualities of a screen romance that both works and convinces. The author uses examples from across European, American and World Cinema, as well as television, and this revised edition now contains a comprehensive index.
