Screenwriting Fundamentals: The Art and Craft of Visual Writing
takes a step-by-step approach to screenwriting, starting with a
blank page and working through each element of the craft. Written
in an approachable anecdote-infused style that's full of humor,
Bauer shows the writer how to put the pieces together, taking the
process of screenwriting out of the cerebral and on to the page.
Part One of the book covers character, location, time-frame and
dialogue, emphasizing the particularity in writing for a visual
medium. Part Two of the book focuses on the narrative aspect of
screenwriting. Proceeding incrementally from the idea and story
outline, through plotting and writing the treatment, the
workshop-in-a-book concludes with writing the First Draft. A unique
emphasis on the visual elements of storytelling because the camera
is always present-the screenplay must act as a guide for the
director and the editor. A "workshop in a book" approach that walks
the reader step-by-step through a screenplay-focusing on character,
location, time frame, visual components, and transitions-with
plenty of exercises that generate material for the narrative
writing process. A process-oriented approach, combined with a
lighthearted tone and approachable style, that allows the reader to
ease into the daunting task of writing a First Draft and takes them
all the way through to the end- First Draft in hand.
