We're living in a time of unprecedented diversity in produced media content, with more characters appearing who are Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT), disabled, or from other religions or classes. What's more, these characters are increasingly appearing in genre pieces, accessible to the mainstream, instead of being hidden away in so-called 'worthier' pieces, as in the past. How to Write Diverse Characters discusses issues of race, disability, sexuality and transgender people with specific reference to characterisation - not only in movies and TV, but also novel writing. Taking in blockbuster movies such as Mad Max Fury Road, Russell T Davies' ground-breaking TV series Cucumber and and the controversial novel Gone Girl, the book explores: - How character role function really works - What is the difference between stereotype and archetype? - Why 'trope' does not mean what Twitter and Tumblr think it means - How the burden of casting affects both box office and audience perception - Why diversity is not about agendas, buzzwords or being 'politically correct' - What authenticity truly means and why research is so important - Why variety is key in ensuring true diversity in characterisation Writers have to catch up. Knowing not only what makes a 'good' diverse character doesn't always cut it; they need to know what agents, publishers, producers, filmmakers and commissioners are looking for - and why. This book gives writers the tools to create three dimensional, authentic characters ... who just happen to be diverse.

Writing and Selling Thriller Screenplays has the lowdown not only on getting your thriller feature script on the page, but getting it in front of producers and investors. From premise to resolution, Lucy V. Hay guides you through the craft of thriller writing, citing classic thrillers such as Psycho, The Shining, The Sixth Sense and Fatal Attraction and lesser-known gems like Red Eye, Desperate Measures, Impostor and Deviation.

Hay asks: what is flight vs. fight? What is the difference between horror and thriller? What are the different sub genres of thriller? What part do actors play in film finance? How can limited locations create new opportunities in storytelling and financing? Why is the lone protagonist so in demand? Why are female characters so popular in thriller? And much, much more...

It may be drama features that win the most awards and kudos from critics, but in the current marketplace you're unlikely to sell a drama screenplay in the way you would a genre script. Breaking down the nuts and bolts of what differentiates drama from genre, Writing and Selling Drama Screenplays will consider questions such as: What is 'emotional truth'? What separates stereotypical and authentic characters? What are the different types of drama feature screenplay? How do we make these films, when there's 'no money'? What are the distribution opportunities for dramas? Exploring the ways in which drama and authenticity work, it will empower screenwriters to make their own story and character choices, so they can write and also help to package, finance and even make their own drama features. Writing and Selling Drama Screenplays will include detailed case studies of produced dramas made on both shoestring and bigger budgets, and industry insights from their writers, directors and producers. It looks in-depth at Scottish BAFTA-winning Night People, the iconic coming out movie Beautiful Thing, the touching New Orleans drama Hours, starring the late Paul Walker, and the ambitious true story of Saving Mr Banks, based on the battle of wills between Mary Poppins author PL Travers and Walt Disney himself. It will also discuss films such as Brokeback Mountain, American Beauty, The King's Speech, Juno, Erin Brockovich, Changeling and Girl, Interrupted.

Using sources from a wide variety of print and digital media, this book discusses the need for ample and healthy portrayals of disability and neurodiversity in the media, as the primary way that most people learn about conditions. It contains 13 newly written chapters drawing on representations of disability in popular culture from film, television, and print media in both the Global North and the Global South, including the United States, Canada, India, and Kenya. Although disability is often framed using a limited range of stereotypical tropes such as victims, supercrips, or suffering patients, this book shows how disability and neurodiversity are making their way into more mainstream media productions and publications with movies, television shows, and books featuring prominent and even lead characters with disabilities or neurodiversity. Disability Representation in Film, TV, and Print Media will be of interest to all scholars and students of disability studies, cultural studies, film studies, gender studies, and sociology more broadly.

Private Investigations Book One and Two By: Darryl C. Vickers Book One: Private Investigations revolves around the world of Sam Aquino, an old fashioned Filipino private detective who relies on his wits, people skills, and if necessary a few tricks up his sleeve to solve some mysterious cases within his local Westlake community. But Sam isn't alone, he's got a diverse community of friends and family to help him because that's what people do. Westlake is a community loosely based on my experiences growing up in my diverse neighborhood in San Diego, Ca. during the 60's and 70's. Things were much different back then. People knew each other, and families weren't limited to blood relatives. There was a sense of community and good will towards everyone no matter what their gender, race, skin color or ability. In Book One, what starts out as Sam’s frustration with a high tech surveillance firm operating nearby and a case involving the missing daughter of a client, who’s a close long time friend of Sam’s asst. ends up intersecting, forcing Sam to use his street smarts and personality skills to gain information to solve a human trafficking case. And that case directly involves members of his extended/blended family, which includes his personal assistant Donna, Sam’s daughter in-law Christine as well as his college aged granddaughter Megan and her close friends who have detective skills of their own. Mystery, intrigue, suspense, and coincidences are all intertwined throughout this fast paced adventure featuring multi-generational and multi ethnic characters, who sometimes speak different languages, including many of the female characters who display smart and strong personalities. Book Two: Private Investigations is not only a story about Private Investigator Sam Aquino (an old fashioned Filipino private detective) who goes about investigating his cases within his local Westlake community, but a story about promoting goodwill and diversity that mirrors the world we now live in which consists of many people of diverse cultures, races, economic backgrounds and abilities. Readers will find the world of Private Investigations very different. It concentrates on those human connections. You’ll find the characters in Private Investigations aren’t too far from reality and not too much the reader can’t relate to. Private Investigations celebrates all our differences yet shows how including all of these different traits makes us a very powerful community. All the main characters from Book One are back in Book Two, including Sam’s granddaughter Megan, her three friends Jennifer, Samantha and Nicole, Christine (Megan’s mother), Sam’s assistant Donna Jones, Detectives Harrington and Chambers among others. Only this outing, we dig deeper into their personal lives and some of the issues they’re dealing with on a daily basis, while also introducing new and potential family members. Readers will be introduced to a whole host of new characters either connected directly or indirectly to PI Sam Aquino, such as Tsunami Football Players, employees of the Nutrition Booster company and Memorial Hospital. District Attorney’s and members of several law enforcement agencies are also prominently featured. This outing Sam is forced to circle the wagons per se and call for help when members of his own extended/blended family become exposed and targeted as he continues taking on more cases. Mystery, Intrigue, Suspense and Coincidences is still intertwined throughout Book Two which features many more multi-generational and multi ethnic characters speaking different languages and accents.

This critical anthology sets out to explore the boom that horror cinema and TV productions have experienced in Spain in the past two decades. It uses a range of critical and theoretical perspectives to examine a broad variety of films and filmmakers, such as works by Alejandro Amenábar, Álex de la Iglesia, Pedro Almodóvar, Guillermo del Toro, Juan Antonio Bayona, and Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza. The volume revolves around a set of fundamental questions: What are the causes for this new Spanish horror-mania? What cultural anxieties and desires, ideological motives and practical interests may be behind such boom? Is there anything specifically "Spanish" about the Spanish horror film and TV productions, any distinctive traits different from Hollywood and other European models that may be associated to the particular political, social, economic or cultural circumstances of contemporary Spain?

This collection of essays focuses on the representations of a variety of “bad girls”—women who challenge, refuse, or transgress the patriarchal limits intended to circumscribe them—in television, popular fiction, and mainstream film from the mid-twentieth century to the present. Perhaps not surprisingly, the initial introduction of women into Western cultural narrative coincides with the introduction of transgressive women. From the beginning, for good or ill, women have been depicted as insubordinate. Today’s popular manifestations include such widely known figures as Lisbeth Salander (the “girl with the dragon tattoo”), The Walking Dead’s Michonne, and the queen bees of teen television series. While the existence and prominence of transgressive women has continued uninterrupted, however, attitudes towards them have varied considerably. It is those attitudes that are explored in this collection. At the same time, these essays place feminist/postfeminist analysis in a larger context, entering into ongoing debates about power, equality, sexuality, and gender.

Beginning in the 1960s through its heyday in the 1970s and beyond, the telefilm remains an important cultural artefact masquerading as disposable entertainment. Made specifically for the small screen, within the tight constraints of broadcasting standards, what these humble movies lacked in budget and star appeal, they made up for in other ways. Often they served as an introduction to genre films, particularly horror, mirroring their theatrical counterparts with a focus on sinister cults, women in prison, haunted houses and even animals in revolt. They were also a place to address serious contemporary issues—drugs, prostitution, sexual violence and justice—albeit in a cosy domestic environment. Production of telefilms continues to this day, but their significance within the history of mass media remains under-discussed. Are You in the House Alone? seeks to address this imbalance in a series of reviews and essays by fans and critics alike. It looks at many of the films, the networks and names behind them, and also specific genres—everything from Stephen King adaptations to superheroes to true-life dramas. So, kickback and crack open the TV guide once more for the event that is the Movie of the Week!
