Screenplay From the Inside
By Edward Di Lorenzo
You know in your heart that you can write better than what’s out there – and you can. All you need is a little help from someone who has been where you want to go.
Today is your lucky day.
There are three objectives to writing fiction in any form: story, structure, believability. The major problem with most screenplays and films is the long second act. About the 60 minute mark in the film, you can go to the restroom, have a cigarette, whatever, and when you ask your partner, “What did I miss?”, you already know the answer – nothing, nada, niente, zilch. Why is that? The second act blues is the curse of the 3 act structure. The screenplay is, was, and always will be a 4 act structure. The cure for the second act blues is so simple, you’ll wonder, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Structure DOES NOT hinder your creativity, IT FREES IT!
What else is this book going to show you that all the screenwriting books have not done – absolutely nothing. Unless you fill in the blank pages using all the guidelines and all the inside stuff this book will show you, you’ll still be trying to put the square peg in the round hole.
Yes, this book covers – Building a character, structure, dialogue(never write the way people talk), scene, sequence, counterpoint stories (never heard of that one, have you?), and the rest, but in a more clear, helpful way and not what you expect.
Everything in this book comes solely from my years of doing it myself in four different countries.
We all know how important it is to THINK like a writer, but what is more important is to FEEL like a writer. This book will SHOW you how to do both.
SCREENPLAY – FROM THE INSIDE, will give you the DREAM, not the fantasy.
