Many screenplay writers think they can wing it, but Rogan has boiled the art down to a refined technique. For example, he explains the function of a villain and how one compliments the protagonist. But he points out that creating a villain isn't merely an emphasis on style but rather the barrier that trumps the hero and "what helps the hero become a hero."
What I find especially helpful is the examples Rogan gives to highlight his techniques. Using professional filmography allows the reader to see what works in a script and what doesn't. On the topic of villainy, for instance, he mentions The Godfather II and how Michael's brother stretches his beliefs and gives him his heroic depth. Rogan doesn't offer amateur advice; he learns from professionals.
Reading this collection really allowed me to appreciate the art of writing a screenplay and how to critique them. Rogan accounts for our "iPod generation" and knows what will captivate our short attention spans. As stated previously, he recommends having something big occur every 10 pages. "Introduce the antagonist early." If you think about it, many great movies have the villain introduced early, whether he was primarily a villain or became one later on.
Rogan also helps the reader by suggesting software for screenwriting, reading professional scripts, and other sources. He offers many valuable tools. If there is a method, Rogan has found it. If you're a screenwriting newbie, amateur, or want to try something new, Rogan has the tools for you to get your screenplays noticed.
but Michael Rogan is a genuinely helpful person who has worked hard to make it easier for people like me who want to write much better than average scripts in my free time.
for me on a value for money scale its 10 outa 10
