The Bare Bones Book of Screenwriting: The Definitive Beginner’s Guide to Story, Format, and Business

The Bare Bones Book of Screenwriting is one of the most authoritative, popular and useful books on screenwriting, written by a USC Cinema-Television alumni with several sold, optioned, produced and award winning screenplays. Using a ‘let’s-get-down-to-brass-tacks’ approach it focuses on the essentials of screenwriting: creative, technical and business principles. For teens, college students and beginners of all ages, this easy to understand filmmaking resource provides screenplay tools to help with feature film writing, short screenplays and TV scripts: script formatting, screenplay outlines, contest and competitions, writing the synopsis, treaments, story development, the hero’s journey, three act structure, book adaptations, character, dialogue, structure, plot, mechanics, comedy writing, selling a screenplay, screenwriting agents and managers, working with producers, directors and more. Referred to in the industry as “the bootcamp for screenwriters” this is one tool any aspiring screenwriter needs in their toolbelt.

An “all in one” guide to writing screenplays that sell for beginners and intermediate writers. Film school is expensive, and won’t give you real world experience. The lessons will teach you the correct format and storytelling rules, tricks and mistakes to avoid when writing your screenplay. Any film or TV writer can benefit as it walks the reader through creating a professional industry standard Hollywood screenplay to attract agents and filmmakers. Students, non WGA and WGA members use this for help during outlining and writing screenplays.

Film school or college can only teach an aspiring film writer so much. This screenwriter’s “bible” offers trade secrets and education only found by working as a professional screenwriter.
