Techniques are related to real-life examples throughout, from low budget to blockbuster films. The accompanying CD-ROM contains interviews with British directors Declan Lowney (Father Ted), Gillies Mackinnon (Redemption, Hideous Kinky), Pawel Pawlikowski (The Last Resort), producers Nik Powell (The Crying Game) and Nowma Heyman (Dangerous Liaisons, Mary Reilly) and writer Andrew Shea (The Corndog Man)The CD also contains sample scripts and legal contracts, a writing exercise illustrated with a video clip, a folder full of useful hyperlinks for research, and a demo version of Final Draft screenwriting software. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description
