about this item

Once you’ve learned the basics of screenwriting, ideas for your next screenplay are everywhere; whether it comes from your favorite children’s book, a news story that catches your imagination, or a chapter out of your life - if only you knew how to adapt it! Using examples from Academy Award winning screenplays, Eric Williams explains real world screenwriting strategies for writing compelling adaptations. Williams illustrates new techniques including how to use the "Triangle of Knowledge" to create tension, how to differentiate between a Macro Genres and a Micro Genres, and how to use the concepts of Pathways, Voice and Story Types to view source material in order to make successful adaptation decisions.
