Syd Field Screenwriting Crash Course

When speaking about her respected comedy “Mean Girls”, Tina Fey had this to say about the writing process: “I did a million drafts. And I did the thing everybody does. I read Syd Field and I used my index cards.” Field’s bestselling manuals, Screenplay: The Foundations of Screenwriting, The Screenwriter’s Workbook, and The Screenwriter’s Problem Solver are assigned in nearly 400 colleges and universities and have been translated into 19 languages. A master of keeping a story’s action engaging and narratively significant, Field—dubbed a "screenwriting guru" by CNN—is chockfull of tips about basic dramatic structure, compelling dialogue, and the importance of writing in sentences instead of Jeopardy! clues. His former students include Oscar-nominated John Singleton (“Boyz n the Hood”) and Anna Hamilton Phelan (“Gorillas in the Mist”), and in 2001 he was the first-ever inductee into the Screenwriting Hall of Fame.
