Two New Screenwriting Tools Just Released

Learn screenwriting by reexamining the movies you love! It’s fun and, with ScripTipps screenplay study guides, it’s easy!

ScripTipps help aspiring screenwriters learn the craft of screenwriting through in-depth analyses of select screenplays that exhibit excellence in story structure, character development, and scene construction. Each ScripTipps screenplay study guide analyzes one movie and its story and screenplay in full, scene by scene, from beginning to middle to end, gleaning useful and practical screenwriting tips along the way.

This week, two outstanding titles join the ScripTipps family.
Ready for the remake of CARRIE opening next week? Why not revisit the original first? Watch the Brian De Palma film online for free with Amazon Prime. Download the Stephen King novel to your Kindle. Then read the brand new detailed ScripTipps analysis of Lawrence D. Cohen's screenplay adaptation.
The 1976 screenplay for Carrie features a two-act structure, a passive protagonist, a weak primary antagonist, and a secondary antagonist who drives the plot. ScripTipps takes a detailed look at how these non-standard elements worked, uncovering dozens and dozens of practical screenwriting tips you can apply to original scripts or adaptations in any genre.

Remember what movie won the Academy Award last year for Best Adapted screenplay?
ScripTipps examines the choices made by 2012 Oscar winners writer/director Alexander Payne (Sideways) and co-writers Nat Faxon (Ben and Kate) & Jim Rash (Community, The Writers' Room) in adapting the novel THE DESCENDANTS by Kaui Hart Hemmings, as well as the universally applicable screenwriting techniques they used to take their suffering protagonist (played by George Clooney) on an emotional journey of self-discovery, closure, and healing.
Both ScripTipps ebooks are available now in Kindle format for an insanely low introductory price at Amazon.com, along with ScripTipps for The Hangover, Star Trek (2009), and Superman & Superman II.
