Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Cut to the Chase is now the ONLY book I use for my advanced feature screenwriting class at S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. It’s a book for aspiring screenwriters, written by professional screenwriters. The layout of the material follows an organic work-flow that mirrors the writer's process.  It’s the type of book that will one day be thanked at the Oscars!"
—Keith Giglio, Professor, Syracuse University; Screenwriter and Executive Producer whose credits include Cinderella Story

"A classic. Very readable. Very informative."
—Producer Julie Corman (New World Pictures, New Horizons Pictures)

"Cut to the Chase is a state-of-the-art collection of articles by some of the best (and most prolific) teachers at the UCLA Extension Writers' Program. In addition to practical information on craft, the reader also receives some pithy, entertaining and frank advice on dealing with the realities of a screenwriting career.  As a therapist who specializes in working with creative people of all stripes, I appreciate even more the book's wisdom and common sense. Plus, it's a lot of fun to read."
—Dennis Palumbo, author and licensed psychotherapist"There's a lot written about writing for the movies--but not much of it comes from professionals who know whereof they speak. With Cut to the Chase, readers hear from real professionals talking about the art and craft of screenwriting and learn not only the nuts and bolts of what it takes to be a screenwriter, but also how to mold their creativity into that most challenging of forms, the screenplay. If I was starting out today, I'd be looking for a book like Cut to the Chase—because I'd want advice and knowledge from people who have been in the trenches."

—Diane Lake, Assistant Professor, Visual and Media Arts, Emerson College; screenwriter for Columbia, Disney, Miramax, and Paramount


“A well-organized soup-to-nuts manual for aspiring Nora Ephrons and Charlie Kaufmans, from the faculty of a notable screenwriting program. . . . A readable writer’s how-to that goes down smoothly.”
Kirkus Reviews
 
Cut to the Chase cuts the fat out of the screenwriting process. It's lean and mean without being intimidating. I think it's incredibly smart and cuts close to the bone of what really makes a great movie; less is really more with these wise guides taking the grizzle out of process!”
—Karen Leigh Hopkins, Because I Said So, Stepmom

Cut the Chase is a great value for aspiring screenwriters, leveraging the knowledge of numerous UCLA Extension instructors with their collective experience of 20 produced feature films in one volume.  Covering everything from the inception of the idea all the way to the business end of taking meetings and pitching, this book has it all.”
—Iris Yamashita, Academy Award nominated screenwriter, Letters from Iwo Jima

From learning how to identify story ideas that make a good movie to opening career doors and keeping them open, this authoritative, comprehensive, and entertaining book, edited by Writers' Program Director Linda Venis, will be the film-writing bible for decades to come."A well-organized soup-to-nuts manual for aspiring Nora Ephrons and Charlie Kaufmans, from the faculty of a notable screenwriting program. . . . A readable writer's how-to that goes down smoothly."- Kirkus Reviews

Everything you need to know about screenwriting! 5 septembre 2013
Par C. Soudry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
It's so unique to find a book about feature film writing written by true pros working in the entertainment industry now. It's also rare to find such expert, real-world advice on how to sell your screenplay once it's complete. Not everything we write is a masterpiece (at first), any writer can agree. But, if you follow the advice from this book, you might actually have something you can pitch and -- gasp -- SELL. I love the exerpt on writing for "the Suits" and not sweating the small stuff. It's easy to get caught up in every minute detail, but author Steve Mazur (Liar Liar, Hearbreakers, The Little Rascals) reminds us that "you don't really know your story until after you've completed your first draft."

There's tons of great advice within these chapters for both the novice and experienced writer. "Cut to the Chase" is my screenwriting bible, and I keep it on my nightstand to read religiously, especially during those horrible bouts of writers block. It's candid, insightful and filled with tips you can actually use. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to improve upon their writing and sell, sell, sell!

Fantastic, comprehensive, and easy to read 5 septembre 2013
Par T Rod - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I purchased the Kindle version of this book, which has its own strong points for layout. First off, this is a comprehensive book about the craft of screenwriting from beginning in the conceptual stage through the rewrite process, and finally an actual map that shows how a script gets sold.

Subject matter experts write each chapter. This works well for few reasons. First, having several authors submit expands the experience base far beyond what any single author could offer. Second, the editing which sews these chapters together is fantastic. Often, multiple submission books seem jarring as they move from author to author. Not so with "Cut to the Chase," these chapters link together smoothly if read in order and stand-alone if read by skipping to a specific stage of screen writing. Third, and I think this is the advantage of the Kindle version, if the reader skips to a middle chapter, like Chapter 6 - Outlining, there are links to the concepts referenced in earlier chapters.

"Cut to the Chase" gets five stars for being easy to read and informative.

Great overview of the whole writing process while giving you something different than other books 25 août 2013
Par Celeste Thoms - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Great overview on all aspects of the writing process. A lot of great advice from the pros like Karl Iglesias, Michael Weiss, Deborah Dean Davis and more. I like the chapter that went into great detail about the premise and theme of movies. Books rarely go into the depth this book did and that was helpful. Quinton Peeples outlines his six step "foolproof rewrite process." Again, this is a topic that many books rarely will go into and there's a lot of great advice to help with the rewriting process.
The book is for beginners and those who are trying to step out of the beginners stage and gain new skills to take them to the next level. What I believe this book offers that many other books do not offer are discussing the rewrite process, crafting dialogue, making the script more visual and how to launch your career. Other books I've read only scheme over these topic and do not go into any details that are useful to the work you're trying to accomplish. I also like the realism that the writers bring. They do not try to sugarcoat the process. They also do not try to make parts of the process harder than it needs to be.
If you like books from UCLA professors like Richard Walter's Essentials of Screenwriting, Lew Hunter's Screenwriting 434, and Screenplay: Writing the Picture by Russin and Downs then you'll love the advice in this book as well. A great addition to your library.
