From the critically-acclaimed independent filmmaker, Michael Roemer, comes Film Stories: Screenplays as Story, a highly-anticipated first collection of screenplays. Beyond film scripts, this volume (the second of two) is designed to help film students master concepts like three-act structure, conflict, surprise, rising action, and crisis, while crafting t only a story, but a story that tells. Volume Two contains the screenplays for Losing Emily, Famous Long Ago, Mortal Longings, Act of God, and Sad but Funny.
Michael Roemer is Professor of Film at Yale University, where he has taught courses in filmmaking and screenwriting for more than 30 years. He is also the independent filmmaker of such movies as The Plot Against Harry, Nothing But a Man, Pilgrim Farewell, and the widely-celebrated documentary, Dying.
