This book looks at the fundamental problems a writer faces as a beginner learning to create content for media that is to be seen rather than read. It takes you from basic concepts to a first level of practice through explicit methods that train you to consistently identify a communications problem, think it through, and find a resolution before beginning to write. Through successive exercises, Writing for Visual Media helps you acquire the basic skills and confidence you need to write effective films, corporate and training videos, documentaries, ads, PSAs, TV series, and other types of visual narrative. A new chapter looks at adaptation as a specific script writing problem. Writing for Visual Media also lays a foundation for understanding interactive media and writing for non-linear content with new chapters that cover writing for the web, interactive corporate communication, instructional media, and video games. This book will make you aware of current electronic writing tools and scriptwriting software through a companion DVD, which offers links to demos and enriches the content of the printed book with video, audio, and sample scripts. Scripts are linked to video clips that are the produced result of the words on a script page. The DVD demonstrates the visual language of scriptwriting (shots, basic camera movement, transitions, etc.) discussed in the book by means of an interactive, illustrated glossary (video and stills) of terms and concepts.

The Basics Animation series follows on from the successful title The Fundamentals of Animation and offers a concise but comprehensive account of a number of definitions and approaches to script, drawing upon the available literature. The book adopts a straightforward approach that is diagnostic, advisory and characterized by a range of examples. Most importantly, Basics Animation: Scriptwriting seeks to promote the distinctiveness of animation as a form of expression, and provides a clear account of the choices and approaches available to the scriptwriter / animator / director, and the particularities of each model. Inevitably, some of these models will have common approaches, but equally, there will be localized variations dependent upon the definition/understanding of animation adopted by individuals, companies and studios.

Going beyond the conventional three act structure and exploring more inventive approaches, Alternative Scriptwriting challenges readers to take creative risks with genre, tone, character, and structure. It explores mainstream, personal, and experimental narrative forms, surveying both American and international films. In a field where novelty often equals commercial success, scriptwriters frequently strive to create screenplays that are innovative and exceptional. Alternative Scriptwriting links scriptwriting to other forms of storytelling, and discusses issues including the three act structure, working with and against genre, character identification, and the implications of screenplay form. Key issues, examples, and case studies demonstrate what works, what doesn't, and why. Exercises encourage writers to explore new ways of viewing their work and to test the limits of their skills. Additions to the third edition include: * a comparative study of how two very different filmmakers handle different types of film. * a look at ways in which narrative tension, story structure, and perspective can be used when writing for the digital film * a study of adapting contemporary literature for film *Examines a wider variety of genres than ever before, including extreme forms such as the melodrama and the thriller *Includes a discussion of alternative film in the context of DVD technology *Features a new study of adaptation from contemporary literature

To make it as a scriptwriter, a working writer, a writer who gets paid, you need to have the right attitude and approach. This guide is going to break down practical and proactive techniques to help you get started, and show you how to maintain a career once you're up and running. It's a guide that's less about the craft of scriptwriting and more about being a working writer. There are lots of books about rare occurrences of someone "selling it big." This book is about being part of the hard-working majority, not a one-off fluke. If you picked up a book about investing your money, you'd be rightly disappointed if the advice inside was "win the lottery." There'll be no "sell a script for a million dollars on your first go" nonsense here. This book is about long-term success through graft. How do you survive as a writer?
