It is the "go-to" book for getting one's story on the page. But now that same writer may be doing a final pass on a project, working with a producer, or coming up with a new project only to be hit with . . . RULES! Should the writer respond to this random list of do's and don'ts pertaining to structure, characters, dialogue, and formatting? Nope. Who says you have to follow the screenwriting rules? In this book Pilar reviews the rules writers assume they should follow, discusses why they're there in the first place, and then shows you ways to creatively break them! Rules evaluated include those addressing: storytelling devices like flashback and voiceover character rules such as empathy and backstory dialogue faux pas such as writing on the nose structural issues such as nonlinear writing and act-break placement formatting sticking points involving emotion and visuals For every "rule" that's discussed, Pilar covers: 1. Why the rule exists. 2. Why writers should break the rule. 3. How writers can break the rule. 4. How breaking the rule can break bad (so break with care)....

    It's an ok book. A quick read with a few good tidbits of advice. I had a little trouble with the section title of: "How Breaking it can Break Bad" I'm confused as to what the author meant by that title. Perhaps it means: "How Breaking it can BE bad"

    Not bad. There were a few interesting points here and there. Yet a majority of the stuff in the book were things I already knew from watching film analysis on YouTube or from simply watching a film from a screenwriting POV.If you’re new to writing, then maybe it’d be more valuable to you.
