Scenarios III: Stroszek; Nosferatu, Phantom of the Night; Where the Green Ants Dream; Cobra Verde
For the first time in English, and in his signature prose poetry, the film scripts of four of Werner Herzog's early works Herzog doesn't write traditional scripts, Film International remarked of the master filmmaker's Scenarios I and II. Instead, he writes scenarios which are like a hybrid of film, fiction, and prose poetry. Continuing a series that Publishers Weekly pronounced compulsively readable . . . equal parts challenging and satisfying, infuriating and enlightening, Scenarios III presents, for the first time in English, the shape-shifting scripts for four of Werner Herzog's early films: Stroszek; Nosferatu, Phantom of the Night; Where the Green Ants Dream; and Cobra Verde. We can observe Herzog's working vision as each of these scenarios unfolds in a form often dramatically different from the film's final version-as, in his own words, Herzog works himself up into this kind of frenzy of high-caliber language and concepts and beauty. With Scenarios I and II, this volume completes the picture of Herzog's earliest work, affording a view of the filmmaker mastering his craft, well on his way to becoming one of the most original, and most celebrated, artists in his field.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - The Original Screenplay
The Wizarding World journey continues . . . The powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers, most of whom are unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second screenplay in a five-film series to be written by J.K. Rowling, author of the internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. Set in 1927, a few months after the events of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, and moving from New York to London, Paris and even back to Hogwarts, this story of mystery and magic reveals an extraordinary new chapter in the wizarding world. Illustrated with stunning line art from MinaLima with some surprising nods to the Harry Potter stories that will delight fans of both the books and films.

Rapid Story Development: How to Use the Enneagram-Story Connection to Become a Master Storyteller
This book offers a unique approach to storytelling, connecting the Enneagram system with classic story principles of character development, plot, and story structure to provide a seven-step methodology to achieve rapid story development. Using the nine core personality styles underlying all human thought, feeling, and action, it provides the tools needed to understand and leverage the Enneagram-Story Connection for writing success. Author Jeff Lyons starts with the basics of the Enneagram system and builds with how to discover and design the critical story structure components of any story, featuring supporting examples of the Enneagram-Story Connection in practice across film, literature and TV. Readers will learn the fundamentals of the Enneagram system and how to utilize it to create multidimensional characters, master premise line development, maintain narrative drive, and create antagonists that are perfectly designed to challenge your protagonist in a way that goes beyond surface action to reveal the dramatic core of any story. Lyons explores the use of the Enneagram as a tool not only for character development, but for story development itself. This is the ideal text for intermediate and advanced level screenwriting and creative writing students, as well as professional screenwriters and novelists looking to get more from their writing process and story structure.

Inhabiting the In-Between: Childhood and Cinema in Spain's Long Transition
Although children have proliferated in Spain's cinema since its inception, nowhere are they privileged and complicated in quite the same way as in the films of the 1970s and early 1980s, a period of radical political and cultural change for the nation as it emerged from almost four decades of repressive dictatorship under the rule of General Francisco Franco. In Inhabiting the In-Between: Childhood and Cinema in Spain's Long Transition, Sarah Thomas analyses the cinematic child within this complex historical conjuncture of a nation looking back on decades of authoritarian rule and forward to an uncertain future. Examining films from several genres by four key directors of the Transition - Carlos Saura, Antonio Mercero, V ctor Erice, and Jaime de Armi n - Thomas explores how the child is represented as both subject and object, and self and other, and consistently cast in a position between categories or binary poles. She demonstrates how the cinematic child that materializes in this period is a fundamentally shifting, oscillating, ambivalent figure that points toward the impossibility of fully comprehending the historical past and the figure of the other, while inviting an ethical engagement with each.

Everything but the Script: Professional Writing in the Entertainment Industry
Everything but the Script: Professional Writing in the Entertainment Industry introduces readers to the lesser known yet critically important forms of writing within the industry. The book offers insight into how these hidden but potentially lucrative writing practices determine the way in which creative work is understood, discussed, and processed as a potential sale or green light, as well as the role it plays in the development and marketing of a project. The book is divided into two main sections that mirror the filmmaking process. The first section covers acquisition, development, and preproduction; the second is devoted to production, distribution, and exhibition. Readers learn how to create an effective synopses, draft productive critical comments for script coverage, develop and refine story notes to help writers progress from draft to draft, write effective pitch letters to potential collaborators, and generate dynamic written materials to support a successful publicity campaign. Drawing from the author's extensive experience within the entertainment industry, Everything but the Script is an excellent resource for courses and programs in film and media studies.
