5.0 von 5 Sternen You will NOT write a movie in 21 days...
...at least not one that's actually sellable, or that has enough depth and craftsmanship to survive in the real-world marketplace. To think otherwise is to be laughably naive. Having said that, I strongly recommend this book!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Haste makes waste
This was the first book I bought when I was learning how to write screenplays. I have a finished screenplay now, but this book was not at all helpful. In my opinion this book adds to the difficulty of writing a screenplay when there is a time factor. I would suggest a period of at least 2 months, most of the time going into planning. Who really cares about how quick...

Rezension bezieht sich auf: How to Write Movie in 21 Days: The Inner Movie Method (Taschenbuch)
...at least not one that's actually sellable, or that has enough depth and craftsmanship to survive in the real-world marketplace. To think otherwise is to be laughably naive. Having said that, I strongly recommend this book!
Why the discrepancy? Simple. I've been writing for years, off and on. I've read dozens of screenwriting books, and taken a few of the big screenwriting courses. I've started writing about 50 screenplays, and completed about 3 of them.
One of the troubles I had (sound familiar?), is that I would begin writing, get about 30 or 40 pages into it, and then stop. Either I went off-course, I began to hate my concept or characters, thought my writing was atrocious, or came up with "a better idea." The result? Dozens of half-completed screenplays.
A writer writes. And writing is re-writing. You'll never fully appreciate these clichés until you ACTUALLY SIT DOWN AND WRITE! And don't stop!
The script I wrote when I actually APPLIED this book (about 2 years after I bought it) was written in about 48 days. Hmmph! But you know what? It was WRITTEN. It was complete. It was my first, fully-completed screenplay. And it was actually pretty darn good.
Truth be told, when you finish writing the script Viki King helps you get out on paper, it will likely be only a FIRST DRAFT. Chances are, there'll be a lot more work to do. Re-writing. Making it more organic. Adding depth and breadth to your characters. Expanding your subplots and building elements necessary to your story that Viki's book overlooks (things experience will teach you). But if you've never written a screenplay before (or never completed one you like), this book will talk you through it. And it will give you the basic tools needed to actually complete it. Because before you can re-write, hone, and perfect... you need to get it on paper in the first place!
Make no mistake about it. If you buy into the idea that you'll get this book and have a sellable screenplay a month later, you'll be disappointed. You're not a writer. You're a get-rich-quick wishful thinker. Writing screenplays is a tough business, let alone a difficult process. It just doesn't happen overnight.
The power and beauty of this book is its ability (if you actually FOLLOW it) to help you get through the battle that happens inside, when you sit down to write. It will get your script on paper. It will make you a writer. The quality of your writing gets better with experience. Applying the principles of this book will give you that experience.
Also: Others have accused this book of being "spiritual". It's not. It's motivational, it's inspirational, it's conversational. Just what a first-time or would-be writer needs to overcome his battle with himself.
Some people talk. Other people act. Those who act will get value out of this book.
As I write this review, the script I wrote (in, umm, 48 days) is currently in post-production. And the script I'm working on now is even better.
It's a process. And this is a wonderful first step. A wonderful tool to help you through the self-imposed barriers to succeeding at this craft.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent way to jump-start the screenwriting process, 13. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: How to Write Movie in 21 Days: The Inner Movie Method (Taschenbuch)
I had already written a couple of screenplays before I read this book. While I can't say I agree with everything in this book's approach, I can say that it helped me put "pen to paper" when I was "stuck" otherwise.
There are a couple of weak points to the book. One is that King should have advised that the writers know something about supporting characters before starting to write the actual screenplay. Another is that she advocates a set pattern of writing when in reality such a formulaic method will not apply to all people.
But, I still highly recommend this book as it was extremely helpful to me. I would just add a cautionary note to modify her method of writing to fit your own. Once you do that, you will become more prolific in your writing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen THIS BOOK IS A MUST!, 25. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: How to Write Movie in 21 Days: The Inner Movie Method (Taschenbuch)
This book is brilliant! I just finished my first screenplay (currently rewriting it) and I can honestly say that everything she says in this book is TRUE! This book is more a confidence builder and motivator than anything else -- it tells you to get up off your ass and JUST DO IT! She also tells you to use your day job to write your script--which is what I did, I actually wrote my script in my free time on the job! That way you can use your job to better yourself and pay your bills at the same time! (she advises you to use your company's Xerox machine to copy scripts--it gives you a reason for being on a job you hate!) I started out writing a page a day--the point of the story is, you DO have time to write--you just have to use spare minutes within your day to do it. She also helps you understand that self-doubt is normal, especially on the first script, so she recommends that you surround yourself with supportive friends and family--I couldn't have gotten through my first script without the support of a few friends who believed in me.
She's been there and done that, and it's amazing how good she is at shoring up your self-confidence.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A great book to help you actually begin writing your story., 6. Januar 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: How to Write Movie in 21 Days: The Inner Movie Method (Taschenbuch)
The great thing about this book is that the author gets you started writing immediately. One word to define this book which makes it stand out among others - "participation". In 21 days, you will have not only some great advice and insight into how to develop your story, but you will have created your script. I like the way the author breaks the process into small, manageable, parts which are put into actual time elements. The only thing left out is the assumption that the reader is familiar with script format. But that should not keep anyone from reading this great book. It really makes writing a script enjoyable and less complex. Thank you, Viki King!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Spiritual Methoud to ScreenWriting That Works!, 11. Januar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: How to Write Movie in 21 Days: The Inner Movie Method (Taschenbuch)
This book and it's method is fantastic and relative to the professional writer still waiting on the big break and the beginer still just wishing...Sit down, read it, then do the work. You won't even notice what a better person you'll become in the process...and the side effect is becoming a better writer. I keep this book by my bedside and in every luggage...Luck has nothing to do with writing a great script. It's all about; a good idea and an even better technique...This book will help you discover how YOU can get both.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A refreshing view of the scriptwriting process, 19. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: How to Write Movie in 21 Days: The Inner Movie Method (Taschenbuch)
Ms. King has a winner in this book, defining and explaing a clear cut process for assembling ideas into a top notch script. If you feel just the slightest bit unprepared in your work, or completely lost, "21 Days" will guide you to the destination of a well thought out script. It is a no fail process she takes you through. this is the best method I've used, thanks again Viki,
Joe Dolan (up and coming writer)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Really helps to cut production costs, 14. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: How to Write Movie in 21 Days: The Inner Movie Method (Taschenbuch)
Viki King's small but precious gem has drastically simplified the teleplay scripting progress with us at Talent Industries. King sets up strict time limits for each stage of scriptwriting, making it easy to plan schedules and estimate costs. The greatest thing is that this book has helped us to prove it to certain scriptwriters that writing by a strict schedule is really possible, and can indeed produce some quite saleable results!

Rezension bezieht sich auf: How to Write Movie in 21 Days: The Inner Movie Method (Taschenbuch)
I really didn't plan on writin a *movie*, but I was looking for something that would serve as a cheerleader and coach, a mentor with a deadline, to get me to write and finish SOMETHING, hopefully in a relatively short about of time.
