Jul 09, Mznual rated it did not like it. All the windows in the house are dark, except one on the second floor. On the floor, a small dog is curled up and lightly snores. A man is reading on the left side of the bed by the reading light.

THE MAN, a nerdy-type with glasses and a stack of books on his bedside table, slowly exhales while he turns a page. The bookmark rest between his fingers, which manuwl the cover of the book. The book nanual “Screenplay: The Foundations of Screenwriting” by Syd Field. The mabual slowly turns the last page, roterio, and resting the book on the bedside table next to the lamp.

MAN Well, that was a pile of garbage. Turn off the light. The man turns off the light and lies on his back, his eyes open staring at the ceiling.

He thinks of the time he spent reading the book and how he will never get that time back. Defeated, he exhales slowly. All the windows in the house are dark. View all 4 comments. Sep 17, Cory rated it it was amazing. I thought this book was going to be a technical guide to formatting a screenplay.


I finished this book having no idea how to do that. Field spends half a chapter on formatting. Thank God for software like CeltX. But I finished this book with a greater appreciation of the writing process. I now have a better idea of how movies are written, and thus a much more technical appreciation of the writer’s creative decisions when I watch movies. All movies are structured identically: That frees your creativity: I got more than I bargained for with this one, and it was worth every penny.

Snyder wants to cash in on the mostly clueless get-rich-quick crowd whereas Field aims at aficionados who have good concepts but no idea how to execute; If Save the Cat is like arithmetic, Screenplay is like algebra. What does it do well? For one, it breaks down several scripts line-by-line sjd explains not only why they work, but how they work.

Turns out that the screenplay form has magical properties that novels, plays, and poems lack vice versa, of courseand that understanding them is key to animating your text. The technical, visual, and emotional aspects are all covered, as are the common pitfalls that trap novice screenwriters. Field tells of F. All of which mannual great fun. David Foster Wallace offers: They vulnerabilize you and then dominate you.

Part of the magic of going to a movie is surrendering to it, letting it dominate mxnual. I, for one, prefer films that allow audiences to come to terms with our common humanity, as opposed to those which shape our worldview into something simple and zombified. As such, the creation of a film is wrought with ethics through and through. You might ask why I only give this four stars, and the reason, ironically, has to do with form.

While this was broadly true of Hollywood when the first edition of the book came out, od seems disingenuous to fit Memento and Pulp Fiction into the model — round pegs into square holes — much less the art cinema of Rive Eo and Haneke or mind-benders like Primer.

Std, constrained by time, must have a beginning and ending, but how they are structured in between is not nearly as fixed as Field suggests.

I eagerly await the day someone makes a film whose ending is not the actual ending and whose actual ending must be deduced by the audience after the fact. I guarantee the first person to do this will be hailed as a genius.


Oh rooteiro, I’ve just read a couple screenwriting books.

That could be me! Watching Chinatown is required before you start reading; Field references it extensively. Without conflict, you have no action; without action, fielx have no character; without character, you have no story; and without story, ro have no screenplay. Have you ever heard phrases like: These are all points of view. We all have points of view, singular and unique, individual to the personal experience and expression of each person. It should be mentioned that a point of view is acquired through personal experience.

Nov 13, Louis Kirby rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I first wrote shadow of Eden as a Screenplay and this book is on the must read list for screenwriters. Well, I must say, it is extremely useful for novelists as well. I learned several key things from this book: Know your structure and build on it.

Otherwise you’ll have no direction, no form and the reader will sense it in three pages and bolt – or give you a bad review. Create this buildup and have it payoff during the key scene s. It make a photograph, incorporate it into your novels. Your hero must have ups manula down, like life. Make your reader feel it. Oct 17, Bahareh Mahooti rated it really liked it Shelves: Well I wasn’t goin to read the book cause I’d heard rumors about how simple the book is.

But I decided to give it a rotekro myself and there we go This book is considered a bible in the industry — ALL Hollywood screenwriters now conform rigidly to Field’s notions of screenplay structure — and that’s why I consider this book to be the Root of All Evil. Clear and straight to the point. Good practical knowledge and examples, still I wish Field would have used more than the same half a dozen books over and over again to prove his point. Would totally recommend for aspiring screenwriters of all ages and generations, this book has a few years on his hardcover but it still stands.

Dec 14, Catherine rated it it was amazing. Jun 08, Cicada rated it really liked it Shelves: I read this book because it was recommended in The DC comics guide to writing comics.
