Synopsis:

Now bestselling author Syd Field, who works on over 1,000 screenplays a year, tells you step-by-step how to identify and fix common screenwriting problems, providing the professional secrets that make movies brilliant - secrets that can make your screenplay one headed for success...or even Cannes. Learn how to understand what makes great stories work; make your screenplay work in the first ten pages, using Thelma & Louise and Dances With Wolves as models; use a "dream assignment" to let your creative self break free overnight; make action build character, the way Quentin Tarantino does; and recover when you hit the "wall" - and overcome writer's block forever.
