What this book won't tell you: How to format, how to develop characters, or how to sell your screenplay. What it will do is explain when and how to use structure in various ways to create more interesting stories.
After a lengthy explanation of the writer's terminology. the 21st Century Screenplay delves headlong into the art of advanced storytelling for film. Samples of both good and bad uses of complex structure are introduced and analyzed.
