Screenplay Form and Structure is being released by editor and contributor Alan von Altendorf as an indispensable resource for professional motion picture writers, intermediate and advanced students of screenwriting, film school instructors, producers, and rewrite consultants. It focuses on five key components of screenplay art: writing as a career and workplace experience, audience-protagonist bonding, scene card logic, story development, and marketing.

Screenplay Form and Structure provides fresh ideas and genuine dialogue about how stories work and why some are universally hailed as film classics. This tightly edited volume contains dozens of clear, practical tutorials. Subject Index cites 45 classic and recent movies, academic research, and probing Q&A by industry-savvy workshop participants. Many of the participants are working pros, others just starting out, with a few novelists and academics thrown in for spice.
