Summary "Have you ever thought about writing your own movie but didn't know how to get started? in "Watch Movies, Learn Screenwriting", Joan Erskine uses eight award-winning films to show how writers create great screenplays and how you can, too. From the beginning, you'll be working on your own screenplay! The guidebook explains movie basics: theme, characters, and dialogue. The workbook helps you come up with your idea, your characters, and more. The essential moments screenplay outline shows how the screenwriters plotted these terrific films by creating specific types of events at key moments and also includes space to write what will happen in your story at these moments. Screenwriter's initial draft paper: you'll begin writing your screenplay on thirty-two pages "borrowed" from the screenwriter's initial draft pad. "Watch Movies, Learn Screenwriting" contains everything you need to get started on what you've always wanted to do, but never thought you could."--back cover
