“The topic is scriptwriting – the job requirements, the writing requirements, and the occupational hazards and challenges.”
Previously available only to clients of Script Wizard Software, this engaging little pamphlet effectively takes readers from no knowledge to a thorough understanding of scriptwriting in under fifty pages.
Written in 1993 to support a rising tide of aspiring screenwriters who were new to the form and production requirements, Script-wise gives newcomers perspective on what they are trying to accomplish, an understanding of scriptwriting formats and conventions, and insight on how to leverage that understanding while writing.
One of the first texts on scriptwriting in the digital era, the approach and style have been widely imitated and content ‘borrowed’, but Script-wise remains unique in its understanding of the problems that plague the novice and the practical solutions it offers.
Script-wise is for students of writing and media, but it is also for novelists and playwrights adapting works for the screen, for writers stalled on a first script, or anyone who wants to write a script but doesn’t know where to start. A quick read, Script-wise is an eye-opening backstory that clarifies and illuminates an ever-expanding writing niche.
Use it to find your footing and get started, jump-start a stalled project, or launch your student’s introduction to scriptwriting. You will not be disappointed.
Available at Amazon Books and other booksellers, starting October 2017.
