25. November 1997
Robert McKee's screenwriting workshops have earned him an international reputation for inspiring novices, refining works in progress and putting major screenwriting careers back on track. Quincy Jones, Diane Keaton, Gloria Steinem, Julia Roberts, John Cleese and David Bowie are just a few of his celebrity alumni. Writers, producers, development executives and agents all flock to his lecture series, praising it as a mesmerizing and intense learning experience.

In Story, McKee expands on the concepts he teaches in his $450 seminars (considered a must by industry insiders), providing readers with the most comprehensive, integrated explanation of the craft of writing for the screen. No one better understands how all the elements of a screenplay fit together, and no one is better qualified to explain the "magic" of story construction and the relationship between structure and character than Robert McKee.

Writing for the screen is quirky business. A writer must labor meticulously over his or her prose, yet very little of that prose is ever heard by filmgoers. The few words that do reach the audience, in the form of the characters' dialogue, are, according to Robert McKee, best left to last in the writing process. ("As Alfred Hitchcock once remarked, 'When the screenplay has been written and the dialogue has been added, we're ready to shoot.' ") In Story, McKee puts into book form what he has been teaching screenwriters for years in his seminar on story structure, which is considered by many to be a prerequisite to the film biz. (The long list of film and television projects that McKee's students have written, directed, or produced includes Air Force One, The Deer Hunter, E.R., A Fish Called Wanda, Forrest Gump, NYPD Blue, and Sleepless in Seattle.) Legions of writers flock to Hollywood in search of easy money, calculating the best way to get rich quick. This book is not for them. McKee is passionate about the art of screenwriting. "No one needs yet another recipe book on how to reheat Hollywood leftovers," he writes. "We need a rediscovery of the underlying tenets of our art, the guiding principles that liberate talent." Story is a true path to just such a rediscovery. In it, McKee offers so much sound advice, drawing from sources as wide ranging as Aristotle and Casablanca, Stanislavski and Chinatown, that it is impossible not to come away feeling immeasurably better equipped to write a screenplay and infinitely more inspired to write a brilliant one.--Jane Steinberg


A guide to the art of screenwriting explains how to develop a storyline, refine a work in progress, and do other key aspects of creating works for film.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Whether you're writing a screenplay, a children's story, or a literary work of art, the lessons in this book challenge you, as a writer, to push the limits. This book doesn't necessarily give you ideas, but assists you in determining how best to execute them. Story is a thick book and takes some time to get through, but well worth it!
Story has been an invaluable reference to me, because it identifies the more elusive components that distinguish quality stories from ho-hum. I've only had this book a year and already have a few frayed pages from continual use.
For me, this book makes me think bigger, and drives me to reach for extraordinary ideas that work! Well worth the hardcover price, since you'll be using it for a long time. My work continues to improve as a result of reading this book and regularly using it as a resource.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unverzichtbar für alle (Drehbuch)-Autoren 6. Mai 2002
Ich kann nur sagen: McKee hat mit seinem Buch die Wissenschaft des Geschichtenerzählens erklärt. Wenn man "Story" Kapitel für Kapitel liest, stellt man fest, dass man eine Geschichte bzw. ein Drehbuch, an welchem man arbeitet, um sovieles verbesseren und erweiteren kann. McKee setzt dabei nicht auf abstrakte Anweisungen wie "Motivation ist das wichtigste für eine gute Figur" oder "Suchen Sie nach Konflikten", sondern gibt praktische Tipps und anwendbare Hinweise, die er anhand zahlreicher Filmbeispiele erläutert, so dass man sie auch wirklich direkt versteht und umsetzen kann.
McKee hat mir gezeigt, wie man eine Geschichte nicht nur konstruiert, sondern auch mit Leben und Dramatik füllt, so dass sie wirklich funktioniert, und seinen wichtigsten Test besteht(der wird hier aber nicht verraten).
Neben Christopher Voglers "Odyssee eines Drehbuchschreibers" (The Writer's Journey) ist "Story" meine zweite Bibel, was das Drehbuchschreiben angeht.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not perfect but the best of its kind 7. Januar 2013
Von Wolfram
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is by no means perfect - but its still one of the best (maybe THE best) about the topic of "story".

1) The book starts with pages and pages of facts and theory that are quite obvious. You read page after page and say "Yes, he's right, that's true", and it is, but its meaningless. Even if this is the first time in your life you think about "story". But if you continue reading, the pages start bearing more significance. Would have been better with just 200 pages instead of 400.

2) Although the book has the word "structure" in its title, the books own structure is horrible, if not completely absent. If you really want to "work" with the book, its probably a good idea to write down the essence of the book in short notes and give them your own structure afterwards.

3) McKee is very dogmatic. Obviously he has an incredible (philosophical) knowledge about the topic. Enough to make him a story guru in my opinion. But dogmatic statements are never a good idea. And with some statements I think, he's wrong. But honestly that doesn't really matter, because ...

1) ... Even if McKee might be wrong with some of his claims (in my opinion), the great achievement is, that without McKee pointing out some aspects, I had never given them a single thought. So no matter if you share all of his opinions or not - while reading his book, you start to think about "story" in a new and different way. That's brilliant. And even if you contradict - you almost certainly learned something new and valuable. But the point is: don't just shovel the pages into your brain like a bowl of Kellogg's Frosties. Think, criticize and question everything. Make your own mind!

4.0 von 5 Sternen One for the Writer's Library 1. Februar 2000
Von Jon Fain
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
STORY, while ultimately a screenwriting guide, focuses enough on building a compelling character-driven tale that I recommend it to anyone out there who is writing fiction as well, especially novels. Much of the book will startle you with its clarity and insight. Take for example the importance of the Inciting Incident, that moment in the story where the protagonist is thrown into action. While not necessarily a new idea, McKee's presentation and discussion of this and other story components is impressive. Although the book does at times dip into detail on structure that becomes overwhelming, it's a nice tool to add to the library. Like any good "how-to" book it's best when savored for its resonating nuggets and used as a jumping-off point for finding your own way.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Unlike many "screenwriting consultants" currently marketing their snake oil to the masses, McKee offers no simple solutions or ten quick steps to success. He knows there aren't any.
Instead, he discusses exactly what his title implies: Story. There are meaty, richly detailed insights into everything from why stories are important to civilizations, to insightful chapters on story structure -- beat by beat, scene by scene, and act by act. No formulas. No gimmicks. Just a solid foundation for a lot of hard work.

Taking a no-nonsense approach that reads like a breath of fresh air, McKee patiently lays out what it takes to make a good story. Just as important, he explains what a "good story" really means. Numerous examples from films past and present are used in an illuminating and thought-provoking manner.

Don't look for spicy but empty chapters entitled "How to Get an Agent" or "How to Sell Your Script" here -- this is the real meat and potatoes, the essence of good screenwriting conveyed in a way that you can return to again and again, picking up something new each time.

Finally, someone decided we all needed to worry a little less about how to sell a screenplay. Instead, we should learn what it takes to make a screenplay worth selling -- and watching. "Story" is a landmark work that instantly catapults itself to the front and center of a flashy but often unfulfilling genre. Thoughtful, well-written and solidly structured, it deserves to be the new standard screenplay "how to" text for years to come.
