5.0 von 5 Sternen Why settle for less when you can have the best?! 6. April 2007
Von Tennessee Pen Slinger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
By far this is the best screenwriting book on the market. When I submitted my script to my agent he laughed and asked where I learned to write. I told him that I used a couple of Syd Fields books and he laughed even harder. Not really understanding what he was laughing at, he told me to buy the Screenwriter's Bible by David Trottier.

After reading it and using it as my reference tool, I realized the mistakes that Mr. Fields reference had caused and I rewrote the script I had.

Now, after years of doing it "wrong" I have had three meetings with several bigwigs in the movie industry and sold two screenplays, a couple of treatments, and am currently having a script looked at by another industry staple.

I'm not saying that it will work for everbody, but if you want people to take you seriously you have to buy this book and read it from cover to cover. Trottier shows the correct way to put everything together and thanks to him I'm making money doing what I love to do!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Most Practical Book on Screenwriting Basics 19. Mai 2008
Von C. J. Singh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
THE SCREENWRITER'S BIBLE, in one volume, comprises six substantial guidebooks:

Book I: How to Write a Screenplay--A Primer;
Book II: 7 Steps to a Stunning Script--A Workbook;
Book III: Proper Formatting Technique--A Style Guide;
Book IV: Writing & Revising Your Breakthrough--A Script Consultant's View;
Book V: How to Sell Your Script--A Marketing Plan;
Book VI: Resources and General Index.

The book's large format 386 pages, eleven by eight-and-a-half inches, would equal at least 600 pages in the more common format of nine-by-six inches.

Book I: How to Write a Screenplay. Aptly subtitled a primer, it presents a compact introduction to screenwriting. In particular, Trottier focuses on the three-act structure with six key turning or plot points: the catalyst; the big event; the pinch (or midpoint); the crisis (low point); the showdown; the realization. Throughout, the author includes examples from well-known films.

Book II: 7 Steps to a Stunning Script. This workbook includes 25 checkpoint lists and a character/action grid.

Book III: Proper Formatting Technique--A Style Guide. "The spec script is the selling script, sometimes called the writer's draft. You write it with the idea of selling it later or circulating it as a sample. Once it is sold and goes into pre-production, it will be transformed into a shooting script, also known as the production draft. The spec-script style avoids camera angles, editing directions, and technical intrusions" (page 114). To illustrate formatting a spec script, Trottier includes his humorous three-page script "The Perspicacious Professor." This book convinced me to use the author's software "Dr Format" instead of "Final Draft."

Book IV: Writing & Revising Your Breakthrough--A Script Consultant's View. Trottier provides tips on "how to direct the camera without using camera directions" and exercises, based on his clients' scripts, to guide reader in revising to current spec-writing style.

Book V: How to Sell Your Script--A Marketing Plan. In addition to numerous suggestions on marketing, Trottier cautions screenwriters to protect their works. "Registering one's copyright and displaying the copyright notice on the script's title page is no longer seen as something done by paranoid writers." Writers Guild of America will register one-page synopsis, longer treatments, as well as draft(s) of a screenplay.

Book VI: Resources and General Index. This book includes several lists containing "carefully selected entries." I promptly looked up the first entry: "Updates to The Screenwriter's Bible" on the author's website... and found a useful tip on formatting as well as revisions on one of the exercises in Book IV. Presumably these changes will be included in the next edition.

Five shining stars to this book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Tremendously useful but phenomenally disorganized! 24. Dezember 2005
Von R. Barbir - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
That's right, i took away 2 whole stars because of the author's lack of organization in the book. To be fair though, i also took some points away because his writing examples (using his own spec scripts) are so incredibly bad, they had me getting pissed off at the end of the book. So it's not just the organizational problem i'm upset about.

The book is really pretty useful and filled with valuable information about how to structure your story (using many examples of movies past) how to format your script (this time using the author's own writing as a reference) and finally, how to land an agent or sell a script on your own. All of those are really very informative and the author's style works well in getting his point across. I didn't have any trouble understanding the concepts he was presenting from the first page to the last. That's very good.

My problem was, like i've already said, with the lack of organization. Someone else mentionned this in another review but i'd like to say it again. The author has you constantly jumping from one page to the next and back. It's that way throughout the book! You start your read with the first few pages and already, you see things like "i suggest you jump ahead and take a look at this or that". Well, Mr. Trottier, maybe you should have prepared the book in such a way that i could just read it like any other book? Why the hell do i have to keep jumping back and forth because he refused to take the time to get the order right in the first place?? Maybe my next script should involve me indicating to the reader that they should jump to page 64 or they won't understand the plot. Or maybe not.

Second, anyone who actually believes the examples of the author's own writing are good probably don't have a shred of hope of ever becoming a writer. I'm no genius but it doesn't take one to figure out that his script samples reek of crap. The only thing they do effectively is get his point across.

I would suggest that those interested in starting to write buy this book, just don't make it your only book. Whatever you pick up from reading it will be incredibly hard to go back to because the whole thing is so disorganized. I've often found myself wanting to re-read something i knew he had written somewhere, but couldn't find it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen everything you need in one 26. Mai 2006
Von K. Hughes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
there are a couple great screnwriting books out there, but they don't do anything other than dictate the craft to you. This book as a workbook section that propels questions back at you to help you get your story in gear. No other book I have read has done that. It has that, plus five other huge sections that cover everything you could possibly want to know about screenwriting. Except for maybe "Creating Unforgettable Characters" by Linda Seger, this could easily be the only book you'd ever need.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Only Book You Need 29. Mai 2009
Von Gary W. Allison - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Whenever someone asks which book they should buy to learn about screenwriting, I always say The Screenwriter's Bible. It is the book that helped me break into the business and I cannot recommend another.

Let's face it. If you know how to tell a story then you're half way there. If you don't know how to tell a story then this book isn't going to help at all. This book is about structure and fine tuning your skills. It isn't about helping Joey Wannabe become a million dollar screenwriter even though he has never written one word in his life.

If you have the chops and you want to know what the industry is looking for in a screenplay (speaking of course about format) then this is the book for you. Don't waste your time with another book.
