Learning from Hitchcock
In anticipation for the Hitchcock Film Festival, I've started reading Hitchcock Truffaut.
I've only read Truffaut's introduction and I can already tell that the book is going to be filled with nuggets of wisdom about film making that apply specifically to screenwriting. For example:
While this bit of advice is in every screenwriting textbook, I've never considered it from the point of view of the audience. I then realised that every movie that I've found confusing in the past had most of its exposition in dialogue... Boom!
Anyway, that's the nugget of learning I picked up today. Hope it helps you.
