Item Description...
With the growth of film festivals, cable networks, specialty home video, and the Internet, there are more outlets and opportunities for screening short films now than at any time in the last 100 years. But before you can screen your short film, you need to shoot it. And before you can shoot it, you need to write it. The Short Screenplay provides both beginning and experienced screenwriters with all the guidance they need to write compelling, filmable short screenplays. Explore how to develop characters that an audience can identify with. How to create a narrative structure that fits a short time frame but still engages the audience. How to write dialogue that's concise and memorable. How to develop story ideas from concept through final draft. All this and much more is covered in a unique conversational style that reads more like a novel than a "how-to" book. The book wraps up with a discussion of the role of the screenplay in the production process and with some helpful (and entertaining) sample scripts. This is the only guide you'll ever need to make your short film a reality!

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Book for Beginners and Just About any Short Length Filmmaker  Sep 5, 2007
"The Short Screenplay" by Dan Gurskis is a wonderful and insightful book on the process of writing a short screenplay, getting it into the production stage and actually producing a finished product. Before you start making your short films, read this book first, it will help you in more ways than one.

Plus, the author happens to be the head of the film department at my college, and it is mandatory reading for all film students, so I have to praise it!
The best screenplay textbook   Jun 20, 2007
I use this book for all my screenwriting and production classes at the Savannah College of Art and Design. For clarity and readablity, it is unmatched, and all my students agree. If you buy just one book about screenplay writing, this should be it.
Gurskis' strikes a cord with new-age business people  Dec 20, 2006
With YouTube and the global adoption of the internet delivered marketing messages, WE have become the screen writers of the 21st century. Gurskis provides a straight forward Help Guide on How To create the core story and successfully deliver the message to this new and exploding audience. Clearly Gurskis with 20+ years of experience both professionally as an Emmy Award winner but also academically as Chair of the Department of Film Studies at Brooklyn College walks the novice screen writer through this process. I rate this an entrepreneurs' five star, must-read.
