In his best-selling book, Save the Cat!(r) Goes to the Movies, Blake Snyder provided 50 beat sheets to 50 films, mostly studio-made. Now his student, Salva Rubio, applies Blake s principles to 50 celebrated non-studio films (again with 5 beat sheets for each of Blake s 10 genres). From international sensations like The Blair Witch Project topromising debuts like Pi, from small films that acquired cult status like Texas Chain Saw Massacre to Euro-blockbusters like The Full Monty, from unexpected gems like Before Sunrise to textbook classics such as The 400 Blows, from Dogville to Drive and Boogie Nights to Cinema Paradiso, here are 50 movies that fit both the independent label and Blake Snyder s 15 beats. You ll find beat sheets for works from Quentin Tarantino, Steven Soderbergh, David Lynch, Roman Polanski, Danny Boyle, David Mamet, Spike Jonze, Charlie Kaufman, Sofia Coppola, Stephen Frears, David Hare, Stanley Kubrick, Woody Allen, Wes Anderson, and the Coen Brothers, among other renowned writers and directors. You ll see how hitting the beats creates a story that resonates for audiences the world over. Why is this important? Because it gives both writers and moviegoers a language to analyze film and understand how filmmakers can effectively reach audiences. And especially if you are a writer, this book reveals how screenwriters who came before you tackled the same challenges you are facing with the film you want to write or the one you are currently working on."

In this lively and accessible book, Alyce McKenzie explores how fiction writers approach the task of writing novels: how they develop their ideas, where they find their inspiration, and how they turn the spark of a creative notion into words on paper that will captivate the masses. McKenzie's study shows how preachers can use the same techniques to enhance their own creativity and to turn their ideas into powerful, well crafted sermons. Novel Preaching offers a wealth of advice from successful fiction writers, including Isabelle Allende, Frederick Buechner, Julia Cameron, Annie Dillard, Natalie Goldberg, Stephen King, Toni Morrison, Joyce Carol Oates, and Melanie Rae Thorn, and also includes a number of sample sermons from McKenzie herself.

One of the last living pioneers of rock, Carl Perkins is best known as the man who wrote "Blue Suede Shoes," the song that galvanized a generation of teenagers and redefined the honky-tonk music of his native South for the pop mainstream. Carl Perkins was born in a three-room shack in Lake County, Tennessee, the son of a sharecropper whose family worked the cotton fields. The stirring music of his black co-workers struck a responsive chord in the young Perkins, who learned to play guitar from a picker called Uncle John. Practicing to the music of the Grand Ole Opry on his father's radio, Carl realized that "country music needed the black man's rhythms." When he finally formed a band with his brothers, Jay and Clayton, the "Carl Perkins beat" was born. But it was after Carl heard a Bill Monroe song on the radio in an uptempo rendition by a young singer named Elvis Presley that he realized he had to light out for Memphis to make his name. At Sam Phillips's Sun Records, Carl and Elvis became friends, and were joined on the road by Johnny Cash and others for history-making tours of the South. Carl's rise from abject poverty to international stardom was compromised by tragedy when his brother Jay died of a brain tumor, and Carl began a long descent into alcoholism that undercut his career and threatened his marriage. A triumphant trip to England where the Beatles recorded the Perkins compositions "Matchbox," "Honey, Don't," and "Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby" was followed by the suicide of his surviving brother, Clayton. Perkins's life alternated between musical success and misfortunes to rival the trials of Job, a star-crossed pattern that continued even after he achieved a hard-won sobriety. Lessons learned in a life lived full measure gave him the strength to overcome in his own battle with cancer, and to carry on with songwriting and performing even in his darkest hours.
