by: Paul Chitlik

READ SAMPLE

Legendary screenwriting instructor and award-winning writer Paul Chitlik presents an easy-to-read, step-by-step process to take your script from first draft to
submission draft. He reveals the hidden structure of screenplays, sequences, and scenes, as he guides you through the process of examining your draft, restructuring it, and populating it with believable, complex, and compelling characters. Along the way he outlines how to make your action leap off the page and your dialogue crackle. While the first edition was widely used in film school rewriting classes, it was also recommended as an introduction to screenwriting craft by a number of professors and professionals. Paul Chitlik has included, for the second edition, more examples, exercises, and applications for television, the web, and other media, using a wide range of citations in film, television, and the Internet to underline his approach.

Paul Chitlik wrote and directed his first play when he was eleven, considered somewhat late by many studio executives barely out of their teens. As a college student, he went to Spain to study at the University of Madrid. There, he also learned how to duck water cannons and charging horses. After receiving his degree in comparative literature and tear gas at UC, Berkeley, Chitlik traveled all over Europe, finally landing in London where he worked as a translator and journalist for several years. When he returned to Los Angeles he began teaching English as a second language at Long Beach Community College. Soon, he was an administrator devising programs for non-literate students, a skill that has enabled him to read unsolicited manuscripts without flinching.
