Seven Strategies to Improve and sell your work Foreword by Scott Frank

How to handle the working screenwriter’s toughest assignment: reworking, rewriting, and revising, from the author of Secrets of Film Writing.

Every screenwriter needs to rewrite-more than once, probably many times-to make the story work and then to make a sale. And then again later on, to please producers, studios or stars. Tom Lazarus -author of Stigmata, among other scripts- is a working screenwriter and instructor at UCLA extension. In this book, he’s distilled his own experience and that of other screenwriters into a system. Rewriting Secrets for Screenwriters will teach writers how to

  • Prioritize big scenes.
  • Track Transitions.
  • Plot Corrections.
  • Add new information.
  • Pass through for dialogue.
  • Do an “on the nose” rewrite.

Hugely valuable for first-time screenwriters and veterans of Hollywood pitch wars alike, Rewriting Secrets for Screenwriters is laced with humor and attitude as well as information. Its anatomy of a screenplay rewrite breaks down the books lessons into their practical application-a must for anyone looking for a break in the film business.
