*Discusses seven critical elements of any movie script and how to practically apply them *Helps writers structure scripts so that they are more accessible, natural and appealing It's a common misconception that formula films are bad. Bad films aren't formulaic-and that's the problem. in this guide, beginning scriptwriters will learn how to structure their screenplay by using seven critical elements (The Formula) so that every other element falls into place perfectly, creating a salable, high-concept movie. Screenwriter, novelist and lecturer Rob Tobin takes the mystery out of writing and analyzing scripts, and makes formulaic a good word again by presenting the keys to a successful and salable script.
