Kurzbeschreibung

10. August 2006
A professional TV writer's real-world guide to getting paid to write great television

"No need for me to ever write a book on TV writing. Alex Epstein has covered it all . . . along with a few things I wouldn't have thought of. Save yourself five years of rookie mistakes. Crafty TV Writing and talent are pretty much all you'll need to make it."
--Ken Levine, writer/producer, MASH, Cheers, Frasier, The Simpsons, Wings, Becker

Everyone watches television, and everyone has an opinion on what makes good TV. But, as Alex Epstein shows in this invaluable guide, writing for television is a highly specific craft that requires knowledge, skill, and more than a few insider's tricks.

Epstein, a veteran TV writer and show creator himself, provides essential knowledge about the entire process of television writing, both for beginners and for professionals who want to go to the next level. Crafty TV Writing explains how to decode the hidden structure of a TV series. It describes the best ways to generate a hook, write an episode, create characters the audience will never tire of, construct entertaining dialogue, and use humor. It shows how to navigate the tough but rewarding television industry, from writing your first "spec" script, to getting hired to work on a show, to surviving--even thriving--if you get fired. And it illuminates how television writers think about the shows they're writing, whether they're working in comedy, drama, or "reality."

Fresh, funny, and informed, Crafty TV Writing is the essential guide to writing for and flourishing in the world of television.

Synopsis

This is a real-world guide to getting paid to write great television. A professional TV writer takes readers inside the world of screen writing. Everyone watches television and everyone has an opinion on what makes a good show. The difference between knowing what makes a good show and being able to write one is this book. TV writing is a highly specific craft that requires knowledge, skill and a raft of insider's tricks. It is not enough simply to have good ideas, or to be able to tell what ingredients make a show work where others make it suck - any aspiring television writer needs to be armed with the practical know-how that people outside the business are not privy to. Epstein, a veteran TV writer and show creator, provides essential information on the entire process of television writing, both for beginners and professionals who want to go to the next level. He explains how to understand the hidden structure of a TV series - the best ways to generate a hook, write an episode, create characters the audience will never tire of, construct entertaining dialogue and use humour.

He shows readers how to navigate through the tough but rewarding TV industry - from writing their first "spec" script, to getting hired to create a show, to surviving - and even thriving - in the event of being fired. Fresh, funny and informed, "Crafty TV Writing" is the essential guide to writing for and living in the world of the small screen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen just what you need to know. 15. Juni 2006
Von Scotto Moore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I just finished my compulsive three-day read of "Crafty TV Writing" after following Epstein's blog for quite some time. The same things I like about his blog are totally on display here: straightforward, no-nonsense, right-to-the-point advice about every aspect of TV writing you can think of. He's got multiple audiences with this book: I imagine only a sliver of his readers are in a position to actually pitch pilots to important people, but there's still a ton to be gleaned about the techniques of episodic storytelling that are of use in a wide range of contexts - I picked up the book because I've been writing and developing episodic internet shows, for instance, and although I may never get to enjoy sitting in a professional writers' room, the insight into collaborative storytelling is quite valuable. Ultimately what I appreciate most about the book is that, like the best television, it's not pretentious; it acknowledges that television at its best is a wonderful art form, but it's also a craft, and frankly, it's also a day job for the people who are doing it right. Shed some romanticism and learn the nuts and bolts - that's what I appreciated most about this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Crafty and Wise 23. November 2007
Von Lee Goldberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Alex Epstein's CRAFTY TV WRITING is a terrific new book full of great advice about the craft of episodic writing and insights into the business of television (and I'm not just saying that because he quotes liberally from me and my blog). If I didn't have a book of my own, Successful Television Writing, to recommend, this is the one I'd tell every aspiring TV writer to buy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great book for Beginners 28. April 2008
Von M. Archibald - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is perfect for beginners. It uses simply, practical words. Contains a glossary of terms. Displays an example of a breakdown, beat sheet, and Act. It's a straight forward book. Tells the ups and the downs of the business in both America and Canada. Tells you how to break in, and what to expect as a staffer among other things.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Buy this now if you want a tv gig 18. August 2006
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I own both of Alex's books and I have to say that this is my favorite. What you'll get with this book is straight talk with workable examples. His take is fresh and his comments are clear.

There comes a time when you stop reading these kinds of books and you just start writing. I've cleared my writing bookshelf of how-to books, but Alex's two books remain. Make time for this read and you won't regret it.
