“They submitted a shooting script”,
“They have no idea what the proper format is”,
“The pacing is all wrong”,
“This hasn’t been edited nearly enough”, etc.
These are the fasted ways to be ignored in any screenwriting contest.
This book not only covers what NOT to do, it motivated me into writing again, myself.
It’s a refresher course of every book I’ve read on the craft, and would be excellent for anyone just starting out. It’s perfect.
