A must read for any storyteller

If you have any ambition to write screenplays, this is a wonderful book, beautifully typeset, with extraordinary insight into what makes characters and stories work, and what makes them fail. If you want to get a preview, check out Michael Hauge’s dissection of “A Few Good Men” which you can see on YouTube.

Great book, easy read. I’m a danish screenwriter and just sold my third script. This is one of the great books on screenwriting that I always return to just before starting a new project. Especially part 1 on structure and character, I don’t really have an opnion on the actual “selling the screenplay” because the danish funding system is very different than in Hollywood. There is a lot of books on character and structure etc. but this book covers the elements in a concise and easy way – a great tool for refreshing your memory and make sure you remember all the important ingredients that goes into a great script. I’m a big believer that there’s not just one screenwriting book that covers everything you need. You have to find a couple of books that suits your creative needs and Hauge’s book is definately one of the books that helps me.

you might have the greatest idea in the world for a screen play

The book provides valuable advice to writers who want to write screenplays. For instance, if you going to write screen plays you need to watch movies, a lot of them. Not only that, you need to watch new movies, the movies that that been produced in the last few years. In other words, you might have the greatest idea in the world for a screen play, but if it is not commercially viable, it will never sell. This is just one example of the guidance the author offers in his book. I think any nascent screenwriter will find the book helpful.

Michael Hauge is a genius. After reading this book, I went to his website too and the wealth of helpful information is endless. I could read his take on story structure all day.

Awesome resource, easy read, hits the nail on the head. This book gave very specific direction for writing a great screenplay. I found it immensely useful for writing a screenplay based on a fiction novel. I Highly recommend it, especially if you are a fiction writer venturing into screenwriting territory.

Brilliant tips on both screenwriting and breaking into the film business!
