Making a good script great is more than just a matter of putting a good idea on paper. It requires the working and reworking of that idea. Making a Good Script Great takes you through the whole screenwriting process-from initial concept through final rewrite-providing specific methods that will help you craft tighter, stronger, and more salable scripts.
While retaining the invaluable insights that placed its first two editions among the all-time most popular screenwriting books, this expanded, revised, and updated third edition adds rich and important new material on dialogue, cinematic images, and point of view, as well as an interview with screenwriter Paul Haggis.
If you’re writing your first script, this book will help develop your skills for telling a compelling and dramatic story. If you’re a veteran screenwriter, it will help you articulate the skills you know intuitively. And if you’re currently stuck on a rewrite, this book will help you analyze and solve your script’s problems and get it back on track.
