Description du produit
Revue de presse
—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.”
“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

But what blew me away, from a teaching perspective, was how good all the OTHER chapters were.
Look: screenwriting isn't like practicing law, or engineering. There is no set plan. There is very little formula, despite what many books have said -- when a story formula does emerge, it's copied and quickly grows stale for the audience. So having a bunch of different produced screenwriters attack the craft from different angles, you get a book that's greater than the sum of its parts.
Think of it as the Blind Folks examining the Elephant. All of us get a piece of it right -- but if you read the whole thing, you might just be able to see the Elephant itself. This doesn't mean your screenplay will sell, but it does mean you'll have a greater understanding of how to tell a story well.
And that remains the only formula to creative writing: a good story, well told.
Recommended for your library. I enjoyed it very much, and I have probably 50 books on filmmaking, distributing, and screenwriting.
