Publisher's Summary

Authored by a former story analyst-turned-development executive, this newly revised, expanded, and updated edition of The 1-3-5 Story Structure Made Simple System guides screenwriters, producers, and other entertainment industry professionals through the industry's best practices. This includes writing, developing, pitching, and selling a screenplay from the buyer's point of view. 

The highlights of this audiobook include:

  • A step-by-step pitch formula that will speedily shift you into professional pitches
  • A chapter on doing a weekend analysis to create coverage of your own script; and
  • Many more updates and additions throughout the book 

This book is about 33 percent bigger than the original 1-3-5 book, but it still makes story structure simple! Now, 10 years since the first release of The 1-3-5 Story Structure Made Simple System, the techniques are taught in media programs nationwide and this was the first story structure system integrated into Final Draft's industry-leading screenwriting software.
