If you don’t have family connections and don’t want to depend on luck alone, the best shot you have at hitting the screenwriting jackpot is to write a kick-butt screenplay. Big Fat Paycheck will show readers how simple it is to write a script. Readers, however, will have to supply the kick-butt. Filled with quirky black-and-white illustrations and accessible, easy-to-understand guidance, author Colton Lawrence gives readers the rules on scriptwriting and how to sell their screenplay to Hollywood. Topics include characterization, dialogue, structure, the writing and rewriting process, and getting a screenplay read by a Big Fancy Hollywood Script Reader.
