Writing the Second Act by Michael Halperin

Book Description

The second act is at the heart of your story, where the action happens and your characters evolve. It's also where most screenplays lose momentum and focus. Author Michael Halperin helps you slay the dragon with in-depth discussions on structure, plot devices, and how to keep the action moving and your characters evolving, while drawing the audience into your story. Every screenplay needs an attention-grabbing beginning and a satisfying ending, but those elements are nothing without a strong, well-crafted middle. Michael Halperin, whose numerous credits include TV shows ("Star Treck: The Next Generation") and nonfiction books ("Writing Great Characters"), shows you how. Written by an experienced screenwriter, this book reveals the tricks of the trade, everything you need to know to write a successful screenplay.
