Four Screenplays by Syd Field



Yes, you can write a great screenplay. Let Syd Field show you how.
‚ÄúI based¬†Like Water for Chocolate¬†on what I learned in Syd’s books. Before, I always felt structure imprisoned me, but what I learned was structure really freed me to focus on the story.‚ÄĚ‚ÄĒLaura Esquivel
Technology is transforming the art and craft of screenwriting. How does the writer find new ways to tell a story with pictures, to create a truly outstanding film? Syd Field shows what works, why, and how in four extraordinary films: Thelma & Louise, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, The Silence of the Lambs, and Dances with Wolves.
Learn how:
Callie Khouri, in her first movie script, Thelma & Louise, rewrote the rules for good road movies and played against type to create a new American classic.
James Cameron, writer/director of Terminator 2: Judgement Day, created a sequel integrating spectacular special effects and a story line that transformed the Terminator, the quintessential killing machine, into a sympathetic character. This is how an action film is written.
Ted Tally¬†adapted Thomas Harris’s chilling 350-page novel,¬†The Silence of the Lambs,¬†into a riveting 120-page script‚ÄĒa lesson in the art and craft of adapting novels into film.
Michael Blake,¬†author of¬†Dances with Wolves,¬†achieved every writer’s dream as he translated his novel into an uncompromising film. Learn how he used transformation as a spiritual dynamic in this work of mythic sweep.
Informative and utterly engrossing,¬†Four Screenplays¬†belongs in every writer’s library, next to Syn Field’s highly acclaimed companion volumes,¬†Screenplay, The Screenwriter’s Workbook,¬†and¬†Selling a Screenplay.
‚ÄúIf I were writing screenplays . . . I would carry Syd Field around in my back pocket wherever I went.‚ÄĚ‚ÄĒSteven Bochco, writer/producer/director,¬†L.A. Law, Hill Street Blues
