Product description


"[This] book is written out of first hand experience; the words of an old pro. It sticks to practical reality without smothering the quest for creativity with arbitrary rules; the authors respect the artist as well as the craftsman. I recommend it without reservation." Frank Pierson "If any aspiring screenwriters read this book--and they all should-- I look forward to seeing a good number of well-written films." Larry Gelbart "I wish this book had been printed when I started as a writer. It would have been a tremendous help." Aaron Spelling

From the Back Cover

This unique, comprehensive introduction to screenwriting offers practical advice for the beginning writer, whether college student or freelancer. Based on their experience as professional writers and as teachers in a large, successful screenwriting program at California State University, Northridge, the authors provide a progression of assignments at manageable screenwriting lengths for beginners.
