Read full description of the books Four Screenplays: Studies in the American Screenplay:Syd has some very useful things to say about the craft of screenwriting. His analysis of these four screenplays __ excellent choices by any measure __ is helpful. But as with most guide books to doing anything well, they are after the fact, and merely indicate what was done well and how that was achieved, conforming understandably to the formula which Syd has extracted as a necessary structural component of all effective and successful screenplays.
While the formula is critical and necessary, there is still no way to extrapolate a path for writing a good story. Good stories are the product of an excellent imagination in tune with those aspects of human nature which resonate with vast numbers of human beings.
The template for effectively telling a story does not produce the story. Sometimes I get the feeling that Mr. Field, like many in Hollywood boring us to death with predictable and soulless cinema, forgets that.
Read information about the authorSydney Alvin Field was an American screenwriting guru who wrote several books on the subject of screenwriting. He also conducted workshops and seminars on the subject of producing salable screenplays. Hollywood film producers have increasingly used his ideas on structure as a guideline to a proposed screenplay's potential.
