Publisher's Summary

On Writing a Low Budget Screenplay will not only offer advice and rules that must be followed if you wish to craft a script that can be produced for a few thousand dollars, but how to look at your script from the view of the film maker. This audiobook is short and to the point. It does not take more words to tell you how to write a low budget script than are actually in one.

    "Confused, Not Very Helpful"

    I read/listen to a lot of these types of books. I'm an independent filmmaker who enjoys writing (and ultimately shooting) short films.

    First off, to the author "low budget screenplay" equates to "feature length screenplay which can be shot at a low budget". If I recall correctly, he considers low budget to be anything under 100k.

    So that is my first problem with this book. Is there really a market for such screenplays? Is there really such a person that writes screenplays for low and micro budget filmmakers, that they are going to pay money for?

    In any case... what I really care about is what he says about the writing of it, regardless of any silly notions that he has about the commercial viability of such a thing. For me, the book actually offers very little original insight. He gives very lightweight treatment to characters, structure, and the usual stuff. Stuff that is covered much much better and in more depth by any number of other books.

    Skip this one.

    "Loved It!"

    I really just got this book out of curiosity because I'm a fiction writer and wanted to expand my understanding of the screenwriting process. I enjoyed this book and am recommend it to anyone interested in the subject (although I don't know how it compares to other books on the subject).

    Non-screenwriters will benefit from this because when writing a novel that you hope could be turned into a movie, you'll understand the kinds of things that small film studios will be looking at.

    There is an interesting "take home" message here that you don't have to spend a fortune to make something really enjoyable.

    I highly recommend this audiobook.
