An Excellent Teach-Yourself Book on Scripting with Final Draft 10.
Reading online the author’s introduction to his book, I promptly ordered a copy: “You want to be a screenwriter, not a Final Draft 10 computer expert. So this book will teach you how to use Final Draft 10 to make you a more effective screenwriter. Not only will you learn how to use Final Draft’s most common features, but also learn how to use them and how they can help you organize and write a more effective screenplay” (page 8).
The book includes 41 hands-on illustrated exercises for the Macintosh and Windows platforms. Easy, step-by-step exercises. I’ve enjoyed reading the author’s lucid writing and numerous examples of craft-elements in masterpiece films such as “Casablanca,” “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “The Godfather,” “Titanic,” “Star Wars,” “Legally Blonde,” “Die Hard,” and “Back to the Future.”
Although there are no direct references to other authors’ works, Wang most likely read books by highly influential script-doctors: John Truby’s THE ANATOMY OF STORY (2007); Robert Mckee’s STORY (1997); their predecessors Lajos Egri’s THE ART OF DRAMATIC WRITING (1946); Syd Field’s pioneering book SCREENPLAY (1979). I would have also liked to see an index with entries on exercise topics and on films cited in this 245-page book.
A five-star book.
