Write Screenplays That Sell: The Ackerman Way
by Hal Ackerman
You don’t have to attend film school to take a course with a master teacher in the field – It’s all in his book! Meet Hal Ackerman, up close and personal, just as hundreds of his students have known him through the years.
Over the last decade, a dozen screenplays written in his classes have sold and six have become films, including ones starring Tom Hanks (directed by Steven Spielberg), Gwyneth Paltrow, Hilary Swank, and Diane Lane. Many other student scripts have dominated the major screenwriting contests.
With this book every professional writer gets a lifetime collaborator and every aspiring writer has a teacher in residence on his or her shelf. From structure to rewrites, Hal Ackerman guides you seamlessly through the writing process from beginning to end.
