Details

"A screenwriting book with an original and insightful approach. Jennifer van Sijll takes you step by step through the complex transfer from blank page to motion picture. I can finally show a book to my mother and say, 'This is what I do for a living.' " 

Larry Karaszewski, Writer, Ed Wood and The People vs Larry Flynt

Dialogue is one of the most obvious elements in a film. But the language of cinema is more subtle and sophisticated than dialogue alone. From Metropolis to Kill Bill, this remarkable reference guide reveals 100 of the most potent storytelling tools of the film medium. It demonstrates how master screenwriters and directors depend on cinematic devices to pump up action, create characters, and energise a motion picture's plot.

Cinematic Storytelling compresses 100 years of film history, outlining the important connection between film technique and storytelling. It shows how the purposeful use of film techniques like lighting, editing and sound can evoke emotions like fear, hatred or anger without a word of dialogue. It demonstrates how character values and themes are expressed cumulatively and non-verbally over time.

In this essential volume, the reader is given both the critical tools to better understand movie making and the creative methods to fully exploit the dramatic potential of the medium.
