Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From it's a Wonderful Life, to Star Wars, fantasy is not bound by a specific formula. It spans all genres, times and locals, and has contributed to the folklore and literature of every culture around the world. Writing the fantasy film guides you through the fantasy script process, without having to sprinkle the fairy dust.

Book News Annotation:

Jak, a contributor to Scr(i)pt magazine, describes the traits of stock fantasy characters and the standard fantasy film plots to help aspiring screenwriters follow the rules of the genre. She also outlines the principles of magic, the format of battle scenes, the role of religion and politics, and sources for further research on history and cultures. No index is provided.
