Reviews - What do our customers think?
Completely misnamed.  Aug 12, 2008
I have been studying screenwriting for about ten years now and I find it hard to locate books on screenwriting that are not targeted at beginners, that go beyond the basics of three-act structure and truly go into an "advanced" analysis of screencraft and provide some sort of insight that I have not read before. This is not one of those books. There is nothing "advanced" about the contents of this book. Most of it is in the beginner or intermediate level. Furthermore, I was surprised to see that Seger oversimplifies complicated concepts in a way that is not altogether correct or helpful to beginning or intermediate writers. She completely overlooks essential concepts such as the story spine, and some of her statements I found myself disagreeing with completely. On top of this, the book lacks focus. The chapters are more of a hodgepodge of miscellaneous tidbits mixed in with a rehash of her previous books than any kind of guide on how to raise your knowledge and understanding of screenwriting to the next level.
Dialog Chapter  Apr 15, 2008
This book has a very good dialog chapter. I especially enjoyed the section on subtext. Sometimes what a character says is more important than what he/she doesn't say. Dr. Seger talks a little about her life in Wisconsin and about having your movie actually produced. In spite of the fact that yes, you probably do need to have connections, I really enjoyed her book. It made me want to finish my Different Flags script and to actually see it on the big screenDifferent Flags. Eugenia Renskoff
Worthy Follow-up To MAKING A GOOD SCRIPT GREAT  Sep 19, 2007
After reading some of the "reviews", I'm wondering if the "reviewers" are actually critiquing the content of the book or simply making remarks about the author. I read ADVANCED SCREENWRITING & felt it addressed the emergence of alternative structure, which at the time this book was published, hadn't really been mentioned much. I certainly did not get the feeling that Seger was turning her back on the classic 3-act structure, but was merely informing writers that occasionally, writers are able to push the envelope & come up with alternative story structures that work well. Heard she has a new book coming out which actually details the Oscar-winning movie CRASH, which is an example of creative structuring that works. When all is said & done, most stories still have a beginning, middle & end. ADVANCED SCREENWRITING seems a worthy & apt follow-up to MAKING A GOOD SCRIPT GREAT & I found it to be very informative & most useful.
superb!  Sep 17, 2007
A tremendous resource. But don't start here--as the title suggests, this book is meant for those who have already developed the basic and intermediate skills set forth in Dr. Seger's prior screenwriting how to's. As a professional screenwriter, I have used the techniques put forth in Advanced Screenwriting on many occasions and multiple scripts. I highly recommend it.
Ways to Improve Your Screenplay  Sep 14, 2007
In my Script Consultating sessions with clients who have written three or four screenplay I always refer them to Dr. Linda Seger's Advanced Screenwriting as the go-to textbook. This accessible book teaches many ways to dimensionalize and deepen your script and to continue engaging the reader. Absorbing and using the information in this book will improve a writer's chances in the marketplace.
