One of the most respected screenwriting teachers distills his many years of teaching at USC and UCLA into an insightful and witty primer that is both fresh and timeless. Froug does not rehash the time-worn formulas promoted in most other screenwriting books. Instead, he presents a practical approach to following one's own muse. Abundant examples from numerous films, this popular book will take the reader from a first urge to write through the completion of a well-wrought script.
