SCREENWRITING FOR HOLLYWOOD - TIME WELL SPENT

THIS TITLE WAS NOT ON MY LIST AND I HAD NOT HEARD OF MICHAEL HAUGE BEFORE, BUT THE CONTENT SOUNDED GREAT AND I NEEDED A BOOK ON THIS TOPIC TO KEEP ME BUSY ON A LONG DRIVE. THIS BOOK IS REALLY GREAT. IT WAS DIRECT AND INFORMATIVE FOR SCREENWRITERS AND USED MANY OF THE CONCEPTS OF SYD FIELDS BUT EXPALAINED THEM FROM MICHAEL HAUGES WELL DEFINED POINT OF VIEW. THE CONCEPT OF HERO IS REALLY IMPORTANT AND TOTALLY EXPLAINED. HIS EXAMPLES ARE GREAT AND NOT ESOTERIC. YOU SHOULD BROWSE ON THE NET AND FIND WRITTEN SUMMARIES OF THE CONCEPTS HE SPEAKS OF IN THE TAPE TO SUPPLEMENT YOUR LISTEN. TIME WELL SPENT. THANKS AUDIBLE!!

Excellent teacher

Michael Hauge provides a lot of information and pretty much touches upon everything. I purchased this audio book thinking maybe Michael could give some inside perspective of the industry and possibly suggest some techniques on the process but what I found was a lot more. He is a very good teacher who explains things in very easy to understand terms. The simplest way for me to grasp new concepts is through numerous examples of which Michael gives plenty of.
