    Paul Gulino, "Screenwriting: The Sequence Approach"

    Continuum | 2004-04-27 | ISBN: 0826415687 | 224 pages | PDF | 12,3 MB[/center]
    The great challenge in writing a feature-length screenplay is sustaining audience involvement from page

    one through 120. Screenwriting: The Sequence Approach expounds on an often-overlooked tool that can be

    key in solving this problem. A screenplay can be understood as being built of sequences of about fifteen

    pages each, and by focusing on solving the dramatic aspects of each of these sequences in detail, a

    writer can more easily conquer the challenges posed by the script as a whole. The sequence approach has

    its foundation in early Hollywood cinema (until the 1950s, most screenplays were formatted with

    sequences explicitly identified), and has been rediscovered and used effectively at such film schools as

    the University of Southern California, Columbia University and Chapman University. This book exposes a

    wide audience to the approach for the first time, introducing the concept then providing a sequence

    analysis of eleven significant feature films made between 1940 and 2000: The Shop Around The Corner /

    Double Indemnity / Nights of Cabiria / North By Northwest / Lawrence of Arabia / The Graduate / One Flew

    Over the Cuckoos Nest / Toy Story / Air Force One / Being John Malkovich / The Fellowship of the Ring
    "With a fresh take on the oft-mystifying subject of screenplay structure, Gulino breaks some new

    ground in what I like to call screenwriteologyc.the analyses are detailed, clear and insightfulc.In

    conclusion, if youre slaving for answers about structure, theres plenty to digest in The Sequence

    Approach. Bring you appetite, and Chef Gulino will make sure you dont go home with a hungry mind."
