From the critically-acclaimed independent filmmaker, Michael Roemer, comes Film Stories: Screenplays as Story, a highly-anticipated first collection of screenplays. Beyond film scripts, this volume (the second of two) is designed to help film students master concepts like three-act structure, conflict, surprise, rising action, and crisis, while crafting not only a story, but a story that tells. Volume Two contains the screenplays for Losing Emily, Famous Long Ago, Mortal Longings, Act of God, and Sad but Funny.
This second volume in the series includes scripts for Michael Roemer's Famous long ago, Mortal longing, Act of God, and Sad but funny. Writer and director Roemer (Yale U.) provides a brief preface to each screenplay that describes his state of mid and intentions for each script as well as notes on structure. In a postscript, he reflects in the storytelling process. (The first volume in the series includes a comprehensive introduction detailing his own life story as well as the stories behind the nine collected screenplays.) Reference and Research Book News
