Educational book haul


Sorry for the no post on Thursday, I am having trouble keeping up with things at the moment as I currently have a slipped disc. It isn't nice! Anyway - Last week I bought two books which I am excited to read, call me lame I don't care.

The Definitive Guide To Screenwriting

A definitive guide to screen writing


"Syd Field, acclaimed writer and director, tells you step-by-step how to identify and fix common screenwriting problems, providing the professional secrets that make films brilliant - secrets that can make your screenplay a success. He provides easily understood guidelines for writing a screenplay, from concept to finished product. The art of film-writing is made accessible to novices and helps practiced writers improve their scripts, as the author pinpoints stylistic and structural elements such as characterisation and plot. Tips and techniques on what to do after your screenplay has been completed and much more are all here. There are also practical examples from films which Syd Field has collaborated on such as Lord of the RingsAmerican Beauty and The Pianist. Written for all levels of screenwriters, this is an indispensable reference book for anyone who wants to make money as a great screenwriter." 
I am excited to read this because those of you who do not know this, I am an aspiring script writer! I am currently looking at university causes for this!

Ayoade on Ayoade
Richard Ayoade - A cinematic Odyssey

"Would it be too much to say that my somewhat-wry prose has changed the way the film community thinks about itself (and indeed how it thinks about the concept of community)? No. It wouldn't. In fact, it's actually pretty insulting that this so-called 'Community' hasn't done more to acknowledge (or even begin to repay) its undoubted debt to me.

Richard Ayoade is many things - film director (of Submarine and the forthcoming The Double), comedy actor (The IT Crowd), comedian and TV presenter (Gadget Man). Ayoade on Ayoade captures the director in his own words: pompous, vain, angry and very, very funny"

I have been waiting ages to see this but have never actually come across it in the stores so when I saw this I HAD to buy it, I am mega excited to read this!!

I only bought two books (good going hey) and they are both books that are going to help me and inspire me to do what I love doing.

Hopefully next week's posts / Thursday will be more exciting. 

Love, Beth.x
