Story: Substance, Structure, Style, and the Principles of Screenwriting

551 printed pages
Robert McKee's screenwriting workshops have earned him an international reputation for inspiring novices, refining works in progress and putting major screenwriting careers back on track. Quincy Jones, Diane Keaton, Gloria Steinem, Julia Roberts, John Cleese and David Bowie are just a few of his celebrity alumni. Writers, producers, development executives and agents all flock to his lecture series, praising it as a mesmerizing and intense learning experience. In Story, McKee expands on the concepts he teaches in his $450 seminars (considered a must by industry insiders), providing readers with the most comprehensive, integrated explanation of the craft of writing for the screen. No one better understands how all the elements of a screenplay fit together, and no one is better qualified to explain the “magic” of story construction and the relationship between structure and character than Robert McKee.

Yet because of Hollywood’s ravenous appetite for story, scripts are often picked before they’re ripe, forcing changes on the set. Secure writers don’t sell first drafts. They patiently rewrite until the script is as director-ready, as actor-ready as possible.

story structure reveals his personal cosmology, his insight into the deepest patterns and motivations for how and why things happen in this world—his map of life’s hidden order.

Story is about principles, not rules.
A rule says, “You must do it this way.” A principle says, “This works… and has through all remembered time.”
