Before you even begin to write your screenplay you need to know how to visualize it. Thinking in Pictures is more than just John Sayles's account of what it took to make his intellectually satisfying film Matewan ? it is also a primer for the would-be filmmaker. Containing detailed production notes and storyboards as well as a complete copy of the script, Sayles instructs the reader in a way that is much more engaging that any graduate level film course.
