Screenwriting with Frederick Bailey
The greatest excitement for a writer is to see your work leap from the page onto the big screen. Scriptwriting is an ongoing process of writing and revising, digging deeper to get to the heart of the story. The writer provides the sense and the logic of the story, and that means a careful application of craft and soul to achieve the most effective result. The screenplay serves as a crucial blueprint for the film. Without a good story, nothing else matters.
Hosted by Frederick Bailey (Mentor, International Academy of Film and Television), The Filmmaker Series: Screenwriting leads us through the twists and turns of how to build character and dialogue and all the
intricacies of plot structure. With references to the principles of legendary writers like William Goldman, David Mamet, Kurt Vonnegut, and the priceless insights of Robert McKee, this guide sheds invaluable light on the art and economy of storytelling for movies.
