In a past life I did a professional writing degree for my undergraduate BA half of which was in script writing I wish we had been taught the stuff that is contained in this book This is such a good book it is hard to praise it too highly The advice is clear and all of it good From avoiding adverbs and adjectives in your treatment to the psychology of interesting characters this book has many very important things to say to anyone thinking about writing a screenplay or anything else if you ask meThe best of this is a uote from Hitchcock about his finishing writing the script for a film and then putting in the dialogue Hitchcock was fairly obsessed with this idea saying somewhere that a good film is one where the sound could be turned off and you would still know what the film was about Film is about images Perhaps this is going a little too far although too far is hardly far enough sometimes This book is at its best when it explains how scenes need to have beats and that these beats need to be the natural beats of emotion between characters in conflict and in change He explains this with reference to a number of films including one of my all time favourite films China Town He also uses Kramer Vs Kramer one of the least impressive films I ve ever seen discussing the French toast scene sort of slapstick masuerading as drama and even the Use the force Luke scene from Star Wars Beats is a really interesting way to think about drama and I will use this stuff when teachingThere is also wonderful stuff about writing films from the inside out that is get the story right before you get the scenes or dialogue right His point being that those great scenes you have written will stop you being able to write a great film Why Because great films are so much than great scenes A great film is a whole and all of it works to build that whole This guy knows his Hegel even talks about the negation of the negation at one point and ualitative and uantitative change Change is the key here change that leads to completeness I know that is sounding vague but his point is that you should know the end of your film before you start writing and then write the film to get to the end Everything in the film should lead of necessity to that end but the paradox is that the end should also come as a surprise He suggests you do this by focusing on two fantastic uestions The first is what is the worst of all possible things that could happen to my central character and yet at the same time how could this end up being the best thing that could have happened to them And the second is what is the best thing my character could hope for and then when achieved how could that end up being the worst of all possible things The other fantastic advice he offers is to not have any bad guys in your films Like every character in Shakespeare except possibly Iago every character must be real must make decisions based on what is real to them and in their own best interests As he says you have to like all of your characters By liking them you allow them to have wants and needs and if you drive the action of the film by expressions of these characters wants and needs how could you possibly go wrongHe also has a wonderful metaphor of a film as solar system based on a central star and other characters being like planets around the star and minor characters revolving around the planets like moons But the best advice is if you can say it without dialogue then do This is actually great advice for any kind of writing It is the show don t tell advice with some substance added to it Because sometimes you can t show sometimes you do need to use dialogue but you never need to just tell there is always a better wayThis is a text well worth reading not just if you think you have a film in you but also if you want to enjoy film or you just want to write better in general The advice that 90% of what you write is written to be thrown away is the best advice on writing you are ever likely to read
