Writing a screen play is quite a feat. It may seem pretty straightforward, but there are many problems to overcome. First the writer needs to decide on and write all the individual scenes that will take place. They need to be sequenced in a way that makes sense. All this may seem quite simple, but the real challenge, according to this book, is how to get from scene to scene in a seamless manner. Think about it. When watching a movie, a good movie, one does not even think about the movement from scene to scene. There are a myriad of things that make this happen including good direction, great editing, but if the screenplay is well-written with excellent scene transitions, it will make everything else so much easier. If it’s done right, no one will notice, and that is a good thing.

This fine book is likely to become required reading in screenwriting classes. With all the solid examples from films readily available on video, a writer can really grasp the meaning of the lessons outlined in the ten chapters. This book offers a good glossary, filmography, and bibliography that round things out.
