Atchity, Kenneth, Wong, Chi-Li


a comprehensive guide to the crucial first step in selling your script As Hollywood insiders know, the first step in selling your story idea for film or television isn't writing a script-it's preparing a treatment, the brief pitch of a story that sells the concept to a busy producer or agent. In this accessible, entertaining guide, writer-producers Kenneth Atchity and Chi-Li Wong tell readers everything they need to know to create an effective and salable treatment, one that includes such key elements as conflict, likable characters, plot twists, a climax, and visual drama. Using dozens of examples from actual productions, Writing Treatments That Sell distinguishes between scripts designed for feature films, episodic television, and made-for-TV movies, and shows step-by-step how to prepare a dynamite treatment for each. Also included is essential information on copyrighting original ideas for screenplays, as well as acquiring rights to adaptable books and true-life stories. This revised edition includes numerous sample treatments, comments from producers, directors, agents, and successful screenwriters, and updated information on the growing cable television market. With a comprehensive glossary of industry terms and an overview of the various entertainment markets, this book remains an absolute must for anyone hoping to get a foot in the door of the exciting scriptwriting business.Atchity, Kenneth is the author of 'Writing Treatments That Sell How to Create and Market Your Story Ideas to the Motion Picture and TV Industry', published 2003 under ISBN 9780805072785 and ISBN 0805072780.
