Writing Screenplays That Sell

7b786157-ff7d-4045-bc43-290bf60c9af3

Michael Hauge’s classic how-to book on screenwriting was first published over twenty years ago and since then has sold 75,000 copies. Now comes a new updated edition that has been revised to meet the needs and reflect the demands of today’s market.

The new edition starts right from the basics, from how to find ideas for screenplays that can be developed into what is known in the business as a Story Concept.  From there it looks in depth at each aspect of developing the concept: screenplay structure, theme and character arc, scene writing and so forth. Finally, Michael Hauge brings up to date advice on the business of marketing yourself as a screenwriter and selling your script.

At each stage in the creative process, Mr Hauge uses examples of successful film scripts to illustrate the points that he makes so that you can see how the theory takes shape in practice. It is a practical working guide to competitive business.
