Summary
This book is a guide to screenwriting by two authors who have actually done it It is full of secret insider information about how to conquer the Hollywood studio system: how to write, pitch, structure, and get drunk with the best and most successful of them. If you are aiming to win an Oscar, this is not the book for you! But if you can type a little, and can read and speak English, then you too can start turning your words into money. The authors provide the kind of priceless tips you won't find anywhere else, including: The art of pitching ; Getting your foot in the door ; Taking notes from movies stars ; How to get fired and rehired ; How to get credit and royalties! ; What to guy with the huge piles of money you're going to make! This book takes the reader through the highs and lows of life as a professional screenwriter from the highs of hugging Gisele Bundchen, and getting kung fu punched by Jackie Chan, to the soul crushing lows of Herbie Fully Loaded. It has everything needed to make money the old-fashioned way, by "selling out" in show business!
