'a wonderful addition to the library of anyone hoping to write a good screenplay.' Andrew Bovell, award-winning screenwriter ‘This is something fresh. It adds another tool to the writer’s kit and provides a way of grappling with a story idea. I just LOVE the ‘shape’ idea. It’s a solid, accessible concept, easy to grasp and explain.’ Henry Sheppard – www.adelaidescreenwriter.blogspot.com.au ‘This is a must read book NOT just for screen writers but also novelists and other creative writers!' Lou Denley (via amazon.com) Each and every great screen story has a natural and seamless shape that lies within the script. That shape might be a journey, a task, a place or a time limit. Screenwriter and teacher Chris Tugwell draws on more than 20 years of industry experience to introduce a revolutionary step-by-step approach to an age-old problem – uncovering your story's own singular shape. Dinosaur Theory helps free you from the tyranny of the three act structure and reveal the real shape that is hidden within your story. Dinosaur Theory shows you how to use that shape to create your own powerful and unique screenplay.
