Editorial Reviews

Review

Screenplay is one of the bibles of the film trade and has launched many a would-be screenwriter on the road to Hollywood.” —Library Journal

“Syd Field is the preeminent analyzer in the study of American screenplays.” —James L. Brooks, AcademyAward–winning writer, director, producer

From the Inside Flap

From concept to character, from opening scene to finished script.
Here are easily understood guidelines to make film-writing accessible to novices and to help practiced writers improve their scripts. Syd Field pinpoints the structural and stylistic elements essential to every good screenplay. He presents a step-by-step, comprehensive technique for writing the script that will succeed.
- Why are the first ten pages of your script crucially important?
- How do you collaborate successfully with someone else?
- How do you adapt a novel, a play, or an article into a screenplay?
- How do you market your script?
