Hollywood's premier teacher of screenwriting shares the secrets of writing and selling successful screenplays
Anyone fortunate enough to win a seat in Professor Richard Walter's legendary class at UCLA film school can be
confident their career has just taken a quantum leap forward. His students have written more than ten projects for
Steven Spielberg alone, plus hundreds of other Hollywood blockbusters and prestigious indie productions, including two
recent Oscar winners for best original screenplay-Milk (2008) and Sideways (2006).
In this updated edition, Walter integrates his highly coveted lessons and principles from Screenwriting with material
from his companion text, The Whole Picture, and includes new advice on how to turn a raw idea into a great movie or TV
script-and sell it. There is never a shortage of aspiring screenwriters, and this book is their bible.
