Summary: Acclaimed USC screenwriting teacher David Howard has guided hundreds of students to careers in writing for film and television. Drawing on decades of practical experience and savvy, How to Build a Great Screenplay deconstructs the craft of screenwriting and carefully reveals how to build a good story from the ground up. Howard eschews the "system" offered by other books, emphasizing that a great screenplay requires dozens of unique decisions by the author. ...show moreHe offers in-depth considerations of:

  • characterization
  • story arc
  • plotting and subplotting
  • dealing with coincidence in story plotting
  • classical vs. revolutionary screenplay structure
  • tone, style, and atmosphere
  • the use of time on screen
  • the creation of drama and tension
  • crucial moments in storytelling
Throughout the book, Howard clarifies his lessons through examples from some of the most successful Hollywood and international script-oriented films, including Pulp Fiction, American Beauty, Trainspotting, North by Northwest, Chinatown, and others. The end result is what could very well become the classic text in the field---a bible for the burgeoning screenwriter. ...show less
