Syracuse University Press recently published the second edition of the book "Writing Short Scripts" by Dr. William H. Phillips, visiting professor of English who is in his fourth year at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
The book is designed to help the beginning writer enter the world of short fictional film. "Writing Short Scripts" has been revised extensively and updated to include three new original short screenplays and detailed descriptions and photographs of two award-winning short films.
Focusing on visualization, dialogue, settings, characters, structure and meanings, Phillips provides a guide to writing scripts for films and videos of less than 30 minutes, from gathering and organizing materials to writing, rewriting and formatting. Each chapter includes revised ideas and examples. The glossary, bibliography, descriptions of short films and the list of distributors of short films and videotapes also have been updated extensively. Included are brief descriptions of short films and Web site addresses useful to the short scriptwriter.
"Writing Short Scripts" is available in Eau Claire at the University Bookstore, Borders Books & Music and Little Professor Book Center.
