"A funny, to-the-point guide on screenplay format."

Want to learn screenplay format? (Without spending years reading horrible zombie scripts?)

Want to ensure your screenplay formatting doesn't look amateurish and terribly out-of-date like an action-movie script from 1986?

Do phone calls, montages and flashbacks leave you pulling your "script format" hair out?

Fear not, screenwriter!

"A brief and concise look at script format."

Because in...Screenplay Format Made (Stupidly) Easy - Screenwriting Made (Stupidly) Easy Book 4 you'll learn in this Screenwriting 101 on format such choice tidbits as:

  • "How to Master Location Headings (Like a Pro)" - The slugline is the basic foundation of all screenwriting format. And many writers screw it up. Here's what you need to know -- and what you need to avoid.
  • "How to Never Screw Up Secondary Shot Headings (Ever Again!)" - Even folks who've been at the screenplay writing game for awhile, forget how to format sub-headings. This chapter will ensure that never happens to you.
  • "The Ins and Outs of Screenplay Transitions)" - By the time you read this you'll become a master of CUT TOs, FADE OUTs and DISSOLVE TOs!
  • "The Secrets to Phone Calls, Montages and Flashbacks!" - The bane of all newbie calls and flashbacks. We'll show you how to master this prickly element in no time.

And unlike that dry, boring screenwriting manual on format collecting dust on your shelf, this book is written by a former screenplay reader and optioned screenwriter, Michael Rogan of ScriptBully magazine, who believes screenplay format should be fun. (Or at least not coma-inducing.)

So, grab a copy of Screenplay Format Made (Stupidly) Easy TODAY...

You may not become a script format expert overnight...but you will know how to write a frickin' series of phone call montages. (And that's something, right?)
