The art of screenplays: a writer's guide

Mukherjee, R (2014) The art of screenplays: a writer's guide. Creative Essentials, Harpenden. ISBN 9781843442004

Abstract

The author of the screenplay for Lore demystifies the screenwriter's art, providing informed advice in a working handbook for writers with stories to tell. Addressing the key issues of creativity and craft, this guide aims to connect with our natural understanding of story and to enable fresh, original, and authentic writing. Working on the central premise that drama reflects nature, and screenplays simply echo life as we know it, the areas discussed here include how to gather, ferment, and communicate story; understanding structure through observation; delving into the levels of characters; vertical structure; and the art of not writing dialogue.
