How to set a scene? What's the best camera angle? How does the new technology interact with scenes? And how does one even get the financing to make a movie?

Bringing a film to life requires skills in storytelling, the visual arts, logistics, and more. This book presents many critical principles of filmmaking, including:

• How to structure and pitch a screenplay
• How to make visible the invisible, such as backstory, motivation, and inner psychology
• Why it's best to keep your characters plunging into the unknown
• The difference between plot, story, and theme
• How to compose a frame visually
• How to manage finances, schedules, set logistics, sound, and lighting
• Why many films drag in Act 2, and what to do about it
Written by an award-winning producer, screenwriter, and script consultant to major movie studios, 101 Things I Learned® in Film School is an indispensable resource for students, screenwriters, filmmakers, animators, and anyone interested in the movie world.
