This was my second experience listening to Michael Hauge, the first was from Pilar Alessandra's podcast 'On The Page'. That interview was enough for me to seek him out and I'm glad I did.
This speech is from one of Hauge's screenwriting classes and that is why the audio is not the greatest. Recorded in what sounds like a classroom it has an echo to it. That being said I did get used to it after awhile.
Overall the content outweighs the poor sound quality. Hauge is a great teacher and explains everything that your screenplay needs to accomplish in a clear voice.
I definitely recommend this to any aspiring screenwriters.

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.

I'm someone intending to write my first screenplay and have been doing my study and research for a little while now. More than any screenwriting knowledge I been exposed to so far, what Michael Hauge has to say here really hits the spot. You ever get that feeling.. when somebody advises you in a way that makes complete and utter sense in a way it never did when explained by others before them? It's not just what he says, it's how he says it, it's his pacing, and especially some of the examples. Importantly, his advice strikes me as very honest. What's great is that this covers the 'end-to-end' of the process. No one element of knowledge will turn anybody into an expert, as screenwriting is a creative art and the boundaries are being pushed all of the time. However, if you want to know how to give yourself the best chance of getting your foot in the door, this would have to be it. It helps plenty that he is a very engaging speaker too.
