Product description

WRITING MOVIES FOR [FUN AND] PROFIT is a hilarious insider's look at the world of big ticket commercial movie making. Written by two screenwriters whose movies have earned over a billion dollars combined at the box office, this book is full of juicy insider knowledge as well as practical information like how to survive and conquer the Hollywood studio system. By now, you've noticed that the words "fun and" have been crossed out from this edition of the book -- and for good reason: this is not some fruity William McKee screenwriting guide that's going to help you "crack" your story. This book is not about screenwriting "theory." Part one introduces the reader on how to get started, the art of pitching and simple things like making sure you've spell checked your script before sending. Part two focuses on writing the script, from how to form a character down to book rights.

Review quote

"Some screenwriters have a knack for capturing the heart and soul of characters, the nuance of themes, the richness of the human experience. And some are like Tom and Ben." --Shawn Levy, Film Director & Producer
