Product description

A guide designed to help the beginning writer enter the world of short films, from travelogues to animated shorts. The book has been extensively revised and updated to include three new original short screenplays and detailed descriptions and photographs of two award-winning short films. Focusing on visualization, dialogue, settings, characters, structure and themes, the author provides a guide to writing scripts for films of less than 30 minutes, from gathering and organizing materials to writing, rewriting and formatting. Each new chapter includes revised ideas and examples. The glossary, bibliography, descriptions of short films, and the list of distributors of short films and videotapes have also been updated. Included are citations for short films and web site addresses useful to the short script writer.
