We created this course to give you all the tools you need to accomplish exactly that. This system is laid out in a way that we hope writers of all experience levels will find easy to use. Our promise is simple: follow this system and in 10 days, you'll have a powerful scriptfinished!" - Travis Donnelly, writer & producer of Medium,co-author of The 10-Day Screenplay Some of the most famous movies in history were written in 10 days or less. Sylvester Stallone wrote Rocky in just three days. The movie became one of the most successful of all time and made Stallone an international superstar. Kevin Williamson wrote Scream in four days. The script created a hot bidding war and made Williamson one of the highest-paid screenwriters in Hollywood. John Hughes, one of the most successful screenwriters ever, loved to write fast. He wrote National Lampoon's Vacation in seven days, Ferris Bueller's Day Off in four days, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles in three days, and The Breakfast Club in just two days. Joe Eszterhas wrote Basic Instinct in 10 days. When he was finished, he shipped the script to his agent and sold it three days later for $3 million. Not only is it possible to write a great screenplay in 10 days or less, but spending too much time on a script is actually one of the worst mistakes a screenwriter can make! It can lead to boring, dull, and unoriginal scripts. Stop wasting so much time and energy trying to write your next screenplay. Simply follow this program and in as little as 10 days, you'll finish the screenplay that could just launch your screenwriting career! The 10-Day Screenplay system works like this: STEP 1: The 10-Day Screenplay shows you how to evaluate your initial idea using the five requirements of every great movieidea. Is your idea unique? Is it big enough? Will it make for a compelling two-hour movie? What can be done to make your idea bigger and better? STEP 2: The 10-Day Screenplay system forces you to flesh out your characters. Contrary to anything you may have heard, great characters make great movies. You need to really know your characters and let THEM dictate your plot, NOT the other way around. Amateur screenwriters come up with a plot and then plug in forced characters to play it out. This is a huge mistake and you'll never succeed this way! STEP 3: Once you have your idea and your characters, it's time to write your script following The 10-Day Screenplay course. Each day of the course includes an important lesson on what your story objective should be for that day along with a manageable writing assignment. If you simply follow this course, at the end of the 10 days, you will have a finished script! To make this process easy to understand, The 10-Day Screenplay breaks down 10 blockbuster movies along the way - Rocky, Braveheart, Home Alone, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, There's Something About Mary, Bridesmaids, Toy Story, Back to the Future, Die Hard, and Scream. You'll see how our plot and charactertechniques worked in each movie and how they can be applied to your screenplay. It's time to stop dreaming and start writing! This book will show you theway.

The Making of The Magnificent Seven

Behind the Scenes of the Pivotal Western

The story behind The Magnificent Seven could have been a movie in itself. It had everything—actors’ strike, writers’ strike, Mexican government interference and a row between the screenwriters that left one removing his name from the credits, all under the lingering gloom of post–McCarthy era Hollywood. A flop on release, it later became a box office hit. This book tells the behind-the-scenes story: how Yul Brynner became the biggest independent producer in Hollywood; why John Sturges was not the first choice after Brynner surrendered the director’s chair; why Sturges quit; the truth about the Mirisch Company (producers); the details of the film’s botched release and unlikely redemption; the creation of Elmer Bernstein’s classic score; and how internecine fighting prevented the making of the television series in 1963. Myths about Steve McQueen, his feud with Brynner and the scene-stealing antics of the cast are debunked. A close examination of the various screenplay drafts and the writers’ source material—Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai—shows who wrote what. Extensive analysis of Sturges’ directorial work is provided.

The European film industry has by now lost most of its audience to American films; US productions take around eighty per cent of Europe's box-office revenues. There are many reasons for this imbalance, but one major difference between the European and the US film industries is easily identified: the Americans spend far more on development. Developing Feature Films in Europe is the first comprehensive study of this critical stage of the film-making process. Based on extensive research and interviews with more than seventy industry practitioners, it examines current funding practices, presents training initiatives for writers and producers, and highlights the potential for further improvements. Angus Finney has also compiled an invaluable directory of contacts, addresses and application procedures for public and private funding bodies throughout Europe.

Considering Doris Day

Page: 400

The biggest female box office attraction in Hollywood history, Doris Day remains unequalled as the only entertainer who has ever triumphed in movies, radio, recordings, and a multi-year weekly television series. America's favorite girl next door may have projected a wholesome image that led Oscar Levant to quip "I knew Doris Day before she was a virgin," but in Considering Doris Day Tom Santopietro reveals Day's underappreciated and effortless acting and singing range that ran the gamut from musicals to comedy to drama and made Day nothing short of a worldwide icon. Covering the early Warner Brothers years through Day's triumphs working with artists as varied as Alfred Hitchcock and Bob Fosse, Santopietro's smart and funny book deconstructs the myth of Day as America's perennial virgin, and reveals why her work continues to resonate today, both onscreen as pioneering independent career woman role model, and off, as a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the United States' highest civilian honor. Praised by James Cagney as "my idea of a great actor" and by James Garner as "the Fred Astaire of comedy," Doris Day became not just America's favorite girl, but the number one film star in the world. Yet after two weekly television series, including a triumphant five year run on CBS, she turned her back on show business forever. Examining why Day's worldwide success in movies overshadowed the brilliant series of concept recordings she made for Columbia Records in the '50s and '60s, Tom Santopietro uncovers the unexpected facets of Day's surprisingly sexy acting and singing style that led no less an observer than John Updike to state "She just glowed for me." Placing Day's work within the social context of America in the second half of the twentieth century, Considering Doris Day is the first book that grants Doris Day her rightful place as a singular American artist.

Ständige Ablenkung ist heute das Hindernis Nummer eins für ein effizienteres Arbeiten. Sei es aufgrund lauter Großraumbüros, vieler paralleler Kommunikationskanäle, dauerhaftem Online-Sein oder der Schwierigkeit zu entscheiden, was davon nun unsere Aufmerksamkeit am meisten benötigt. Sich ganz auf eine Sache konzentrieren zu können wird damit zu einer raren, aber wertvollen und entscheidenden Fähigkeit im Arbeitsalltag. Cal Newport prägte hierfür den Begriff "Deep Work", der einen Zustand völlig konzentrierter und fokussierter Arbeit beschreibt, und begann die Regeln und Denkweisen zu erforschen, die solch fokussiertes Arbeiten fördern. Mit seiner Deep-Work-Methode verrät Newport, wie man sich systematisch darauf trainiert, zu fokussieren, und wie wir unser Arbeitsleben nach den Regeln der Deep-Work-Methode neu organisieren können. Wer in unserer schnelllebigen und sprunghaften Zeit nicht untergehen will, für den ist dieses Konzept unerlässlich. Kurz gesagt: Die Entscheidung für Deep Work ist eine der besten, die man in einer Welt voller Ablenkungen treffen kann.

Im Jahr 2045 ist die Welt ein hässlicher Ort: Die Erdölvorräte sind aufgebraucht, ein Großteil der Bevölkerung lebt in Armut. Einziger Lichtblick ist die OASIS, eine virtuelle Ersatzwelt, in der man leben, arbeiten, zur Schule gehen und spielen kann. Die OASIS ist ein ganzes Universum, es gibt Tausende von Welten, von denen jede ebenso einzigartig wie phantasievoll ist. Und sie hat ein Geheimnis. Der exzentrische Schöpfer der OASIS hat tief im virtuellen Code einen Schatz vergraben, und wer ihn findet, wird seinen gesamten Besitz erben – zweihundertvierzig Milliarden Dollar. Eine Reihe von Rätseln weist den Weg, doch der Haken ist: Niemand weiß, wo die Fährte beginnt. Bis Wade Watts, ein ganz normaler Junge, der am Stadtrand von Oklahoma City in einem Wohnwagen lebt, den ersten wirklich brauchbaren Hinweis findet. Die Jagd ist eröffnet ... »›Ready Player One‹ ist absolut fantastisch – ein großer Spaß für den Geek in mir. Ich hatte das Gefühl, als sei das Buch nur für mich geschrieben worden.« Patrick Rothfuss
