The worst stories in the world are linear stories 16. Dezember 2014
Von zhabazon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This statement made by the author, Martie Cook, sums it up. All too often, aspiring writers for visual medium have difficulties transferring from the page to the screen. This is why so many programs and films are adapted by professional script writers.

In Write to TV: Out of Your Head and onto the Screen, an aspiring writer for television is presented with all she/he needs to learn about the business, process, resources and presented with examples for entry into the field. What's especially important to me is the author's stressing the value of internships, an option that many students of film and television seem to ignore. As a former adjunct professor in the field, I personally witnessed students who expected immediate rewards without efforts. It is possible to be the one in a million, but most of us are members of the other 999,999,999. This book is much more concise and informative for the real world than any of the script writing books I've read.

Literally Everything You Need To Succeed 29. Oktober 2014
Von Quirky Girl - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This should be called "Write For TV; A-Z"
This is a great book not only for those looking to work in the field of scriptwriting, but it's also helpful for fiction writers as much of the advice centers on different structure for drama/comedy as well as plots, character, and dialogue.
There is advice on how to break into field of TV, how to pitch, how to network, interview, plan.
One thing that makes Cook's stand out from many other books in this genre is that she advises what to expect AFTER you've landed the job.
Write To TV is well structured, organized, and most importantly, told in an easy going, friendly, and at time humorous manner.
A Must-Read for Beginning TV Writers 18. November 2014
Von Tamara Thorne - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Whether you're looking into breaking into writing for television or movies or write books, there's something for you here. I'm a fiction writer myself and have only written a little for television - my partner for that work is a TV guy so I leave the business end to him and knew only the most basic facts about TV writing included in this very detailed book. Once I began reading, I honestly could not put this book down. It defined things about character and plot that I am already very familiar with as a novelist, but did so in a way that had me examining my knowledge in new and different ways. It's also great for helping any writer understand how to plot.

This detail-packed and very entertaining book is divided, logically, into fourteen parts. It begins with an overview of the television industry, then goes in-depth into writing for sitcoms, explaining script development for existing shows and creating new shows. It explains structure that applies to most any kind of writing then goes on to describe the differences between writing for single-camera and multi-camera shows. (It had never occurred to me to even wonder about that.) Writing for animation, late night, sketches and standup/improv are also covered. I especially liked the "week in a sitcom writer's life" to show what the job is really like.

Author Martie Cook then tells us all about prime-time drama requirements and defines plot-driven and character-driven dramas, then goes into research and how to talk to pros like cops, lawyers and doctors - and how to write for and create good ideas and scripts. Next, she sheds light on writing TV movies and mini-series. After that, Cook moves on to character creation, the tween market, writing good dialogue, and rewriting scripts.

Next up is what to expect when pitching, followed by writing for web series and all about reality TV. She winds the book up with a lot of information on the business side - agents, attorneys, managers - and how to write queries, what the Writers Guild is, and the pros and cons of a writing partnership. The final chapter is called "Getting Your Foot in the Door" - and that's exactly what it's about, from resumes, cover letters, phone etiquette and internships to getting interviews, what not to do, and the importance of networking.

This is a fabulous book for anyone wanting to write for television - and for writers in general. I learned a lot and will continue to scan through this book whenever I want a little inspiration and entertainment.
Comprehensive, informative, covers all the bases 3. November 2014
Von Kcorn - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This is the newest version of an earlier book written by the author and it contains the latest info and updates of a book that was already great. An additional 25 industry professionals are interviewed. Also, the earlier edition was written in 2007 and there have been some incredible changes in technology and the options for watching shows.. Programs can be watched on computers and phones and more and more online sites are creating their own programs.

As the author notes, "Change...equals opportunity. And right now, the future for television and television writers never looked quite so bright." But he doesn't sugar coat the reality - becoming a great writer, one who stands out, is not easy. He urges aspiring writers to write daily and includes motivational advice to help them up their game.

Then he focuses on specific types of shows: situational comedies, prime time dramas, made for tv movies, and more. There's a chapter devoted to the television pilot and how to create original scripts and sell them. Other sections on writing dialogue and how to rewrite effectively. Reality shows are given their due time in the spotlight as well (the author thinks they're here to stay).

Although the entire book is the most detailed and informative guide I've found, I particularly liked reading sample excerpts from scripts for prime time drama, tv series and more. Not only did this show how to format scripts but the examples gave me a sense of flow and pacing.

And then there are the quotes from professionals in the industry. They are interspersed throughout the book, mostly in short paragraphs that drive home specific points: have at least one character you care deeply about, understand legal issues, find a subject area that's not on television right now, write brief but compelling scripts, etc. Industry pros as diverse as Kevin Bright (executive producer of Friends) and Daniel H. Black (entertainment attorney) share their advice.

I've barely scratched the surface of what's contained in this highly recommended resource for anyone who has a passion for writing for television.

Do you have an idea for a TV series? Maybe you just know you could write a great episode of your favorite series? Then get this book.

This is basically the career bible for anyone who wants to enter the television writing business. The 33 chapters are divided into 9 sections which cover what anyone entering the industry needs to know. The first section deals with how Hollywood works with insider info on staff writing vs. freelance, explaining spec scripts, and even tips for getting your work out there without it being stolen. The next sections cover the different genres of television writing including comedy, drama, made-for-TV, reality TV, Tween shows, etc. Other sections deal with the mechanics of writing a script so that your writing will appear professional when you submit it, creating compelling characters, how to pitch your script, and then how to develop the necessary job search skills like networking and interviewing.

Individuals pursuing a career in television writing already know that it's a competitive business-- following the advice in this book will definitely give you an advantage in the market. Excellent and highly recommended!
