5.0 von 5 Sternen Martell knows his stuff 5. September 2011
Von RP - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
There is no formula, no blueprint, for high quality screenwriting. Too many people who offer themselves up as screenwriting "teachers" try to give people a blueprint or "how-to" system for writing a screenplay as if developing and writing a high quality screenplay is akin to putting together a set of shelves from Ikea. Martell isn't one of those screenwriting teachers. Martell isn't going to tell you to make sure to put your inciting incident on page 30 or to make sure your hero gives a stray dog some food in order to make him likeable. Martell breaks things down to their base level, trying to get the reader to understand the "why" behind it all rather than just telling you the "how to". Using multiple examples from existing movies and screenplays, Martell helps the reader to truly think about and understand what they're doing when creating characters (as in this specific book), allowing readers to honestly create their own, more realistic characters rather than just offering up a carbon copy (carbons are things that old people used to make copies. Ask me about my mimeograph machine some time if you're interested in ancient copying techniques) of what the reader has seen before (or what some so-called screenwriting expert told them to make).

5.0 von 5 Sternen One step beyond other screenwriting books 21. September 2011
Von William B - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Bill's Blue Books were recommended to me by a producer back when they were only available as traditional, printed books. In the years since, others in the industry have mentioned them as essential reading. There is a simple reason why they are highly regarded in Hollywood. They're good.

I own both the print and ebook versions of Creating Strong Protagonists. The new ebook version is greatly expanded with about 100 more pages of new material and practical examples. The information is solid, detailed and down-to-earth practical.

This isn't a book for people who are trying to learn how to write their first screenplay. This is a more advanced book that will help you fine-tune your protagonist to make sure that the screenplay you write is a screenplay that will sell.

And speaking of screenplays that sell -- Bill Martell makes his living writing and selling screenplays, not teaching. He comes at things from a different perspective because he's a working screenwriter. Personally, I've found his perspective very useful. But don't take my word for it. Download the ebook sample to your Kindle or computer and decide for yourself.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just one in a great series 5. September 2011
Von The Fool - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I was given William Martell's screenwriting Blue Books as a gift from a relative who knew I was interested in screenwriting, but didn't know my level of experience. I had already attended film school and taken countless screenwriting courses and read all the major books. The last thing I needed was another book on how to write compelling characters and active heroes.

Boy, was I wrong.

Simple, yet in-depth, Martell knows his stuff and is able to effectively communicate important facets for developing a unique and engaging main character.

Hmmm...Martell -- not a bad name for a strong protagonist.

Hands down, the best book I've ever read on creating a strong, likeable protagonist. Whether you're writing books, scripts, short stories or poetry, this book will guide you into greatness. Think you've developed a great hero? Compare it to what William Martell says in this book and you might be surprised at how much you missed. Truly, an excellent gem from anyone serious about creating strong, likeable protagonists.

Martell says what many others have but in simple, direct, easy to grasp and honest way and the best is he talks from his own experience as writer.
