About this product
- DescriptionEvery author wants to see his story on the screen. A movie based on the author's work is the pinnacle of commercial success, bringing authors to fame and fortune, and book sales to otherwise unattainable heights. Eight of the top ten biggest-grossing films of all time are adaptations, and the world's top-earning authors all have heavy film involvement. Yet there is book to guide authors to this promised land. Marlow fills this gap, showing writers how to navigate the path from story through adaptation to the often baffling world of Hollywood deal-making. Far from being yet ather general book on screenwriting, this book specifically addresses the process from the n-screenwriting storyteller's point of view.
