Présentation de l'éditeur

Vale's Technique of Screen and Television Writing is an updated and expanded edition of a valuable guide to writing for film and television. Mr. Vale takes the aspiring writer through every phase of a film's development, from the original concept to the final shooting script. Teachers of the craft as well as writers and directors have acclaimed it as one of the best books ever written on how to write a screenplay.

This book combines practical advice for the aspiring or established writer with a lucid overview of the unique features of this most contemporary art form, distinguishing film and video from other media and other kinds of storytelling. It teaches the reader to think in terms of the camera and gives practical advice on the realities of filmmaking. At the same time, Vale, who began his own career as a scriptwriter for the great French director Jean Renoir, provides a solid grounding in the history of drama from the Classical Greek theater through the great cinematic works of the twentieth century. Both philosophical and pragmatic, this is a very readable book for students and active professionals who want to improve their writing skills, and for film enthusiasts interested in knowing more about what they see on the screen.

Mr. Vale is that rare combination, a practitioner of great experience who can offer a lucid explanation of his craft.

Eugene Vale was born in Switzerland and began his career in France in the 1930s. He was an award-winning novelist, film and TV scriptwriter and teacher, whose works include the bestselling novel The Thirteenth Apostle and the scripts for Francis of Assisi, The Bridge of San Luis Rey, and The Second Face. He also worked in many other areas of the motion picture industry, including directing, producing, cutting, distribution and finance. His archives are held by Boston University and University of Southern California. Mr. Vale died in 1997, shortly after he completed the updated version of this handbook.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Poor printing quality for a $50 book 9 juin 2010
Par Nutella Crepe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The content is terrific and presents a way of thinking about screenwriting which differs from other books I also use from Karetnikova, Frough, and McKee. However: the print quality is on par with a fuzzy, wavy photocopy. (Look carefully at the "Look Inside This Book" images -- their quality represents how the book really looks, not some digitized-aliasing...) Some lines are shorter (the characters look squashed) than others, etc., so much so that when I see a reference to a film later than the 1970s I'm surprised because the inside of the book looks so old. Yes, it's better than nothing, but since this thin book retails for ~$50 and it looks like a $10 photocopy with the same quality I could make, I think it's not a superb value. Focal Press should have re-OCRed it. There are no diagrams, so it would have been easy to make this edition un-noticeably professional, instead of noticeably lacking.

Yet, you should read it, so try to find a library copy or borrow a friend's. Or see if they come out with a better-printed edition -- mine is the 4th print run, 1998.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lousy title, fantastic content 19 décembre 2012
Par Carol M - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I've read and studied the dozen or so standard books on screen writing. I took Robert McKee's screen writing course. If you're looking for the cookie cutter screenplay formula, there are plenty of other books. But if you're interested in the science (so to speak) of screen writing, then this is a fantastic book. Vale explains "what makes it interesting." He explains the nuts and bolts of suspense. He explains how screenplays are different from stage plays which are different from novels and short stories. I would like to buy the rights to this book and sell it again, but with a different title.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Vale's Technique of Screen and Television Writing 7 janvier 2002
Par D.H. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Vale's book should be a cornerstone of any screenwriting education...a classic that has withstood not only the test of changing times and movie tastes, but eloquently focuses on those
basics which make for great screen story. This book deserves to be on any screenwriters top shelf, and will be returned to often and for life!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Internal Nuts & Bolts of Story Telling! 20 mars 2013
Par C. R. Lewis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is so Powerful that I have both the paperback and Kindle editions. I'm not a filmmaker, but I am a Professional Speaker, and having the ability to tell stories in a fresh, unique manner is extremely important, not just for me, but also for my audience. And knowing how to move my audience with the two motivators, Pain or Pleasure is exciting. When I first decided to buy the paperback edition, I thought it was a bit too pricey, especially when compared to other books on filmmaking or story-telling. But once I read it, it was well worth the money I invested - both times. I'm not certain what you may be looking when it comes to telling stories, but this book gave me an additional edge over other speakers when presenting stories. And I wasn't looking for an edge. I just wanted to be a Better Story-Teller. And Vale's Techniques took me over the top. I am very grateful!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent tool 7 novembre 2001
Par Kasper - Publié sur Amazon.com
In this book Eugene Vale develops and explains his excellent technique of writing a movie or teleplay script, thereby covering all aspects of the production of a script from the initial idea to the finished shooting script. Although the book explains a lot of theory, it's firmly rooted in common sense and is more than anything about the craft of screenwriting from a craftsmans point of view. The theory is very well explained and easy to understand. With this book Mr. Vale gives us an important and advanced tool for analysing and creating a working dramatic construction. I won't hesitate to recommend the book, it's simply a must for students and aspiring screenplay writers.
