Detailing the nuts and bolts of the job of script editing, this book looks at what’s required and expected, how script editors assess a script, their approach to working with writers and producers, and their input during rewrites and pre-production, up to a project’s completion. It also examines the ways in which writers and producers can benefit from working with a professional script editor as they seek to refine and communicate their vision. This is a valuable resource for anyone developing a script, for writers and producers interested in expanding their understanding of how a script is advanced, and for those pursuing a career in script development.
Karol Griffiths has been a successful script supervisor, script editor and development associate for more than 20 years. She has worked with companies such as Warner Brothers, Universal, Disney, Paramount and Fox Studios and runs her own freelance consultancy.

Editorial Reviews

"A clear, insightful and sensitive look at the work of script editors and screen writers. The book never preaches and instead brilliantly explores the multiple approaches and individuality needed to write a great script and the empathy and inspiration script editors bring to the process. One of the only books I've read on the subject that captures the truly collaborative nature of film writing." —Hossein Amini, writer of Drive and writer and director of The Two Faces of January.
