In his best-selling book, Save the Cat! Goes to the Movies, Blake Snyder provided 50 “beat sheets” to 50 films, mostly studio-made.
Now his student, screenwriter and novelist Salva Rubio, applies Blake’s principles to 50 independent, auteur, European and cult films (again with 5 beat sheets for each of Blake’s 10 genres).
If you’re a moviegoer, you’ll discover a language to analyze film and understand how filmmakers can effectively reach audiences.
If you’re a writer, this book reveals how those who came before you tackled the same challenges you are facing with the films you want to write.
