About the Book:

HARD TO FIND BOOK, only a very limited number of copies are still available.

A unique focus on filmmaking, as seen through the eyes of many of film's best-known artists. In addition to completely updating and revising the first edition of From Script to Screen, the authors have added a substantial new section that is an extensive case study of the Academy Award winning film, A Beautiful Mind, including exclusive participation by Ron Howard.

What goes into the making of Hollywood's greatest motion pictures? Find out as veteran script consultant Linda Seger and communications professor Edward Jay Whetmore examine several screenplays on their perilous journeys from script to screen. Along the way you'll meet the industry's leading writers, directors, producers, actors, editors, composers, and others behind the scenes. From their unique vantage points, personalities as diverse as Oliver Stone, Barry Levinson, Ridley Scott, Norman Jewison, Lawrence Kasdan, Robin Williams, Henry Mancini, and John Lithgow reveal the alchemy they use to bring great stories to life. What's more, From Script to Screen is as provocative as the films it investigates.

What people say:

"Lively and well written, it's a unique resource for film professionals and movie buffs alike." — Kathleen Kennedy, producer: E.T., Jurassic Park

About the Author:

Linda Seger is an American author and retired screenwriting consultant. With a doctorate in drama, she created and defined the job of script consultant when she began her business in 1981, based on a method for analyzing scripts she developed for her dissertation project about the elements needed to make a script work. Since then, she has consulted on over 2000 scripts, including over 100 produced films. Her background in the entertainment business and development makes her an excellent resource.

Edward Jay (Edd) Whetmore (1946-2016) was a longtime Professor of Communications at Cal State Dominguez Hills and University of San Francisco. He was the author of many scholarly works including From Script to Screen.
