Writing for the screen is a little different from writing for print as the screen is a much more visual medium. At least some basic knowledge about camera positioning, setting, casting and direction can make your script much more effective to adapt.
Here is a video that lists some of my favourite books on scriptwriting:
The books mentioned in this video are listed below:
- Story by Robert McKee
- The Hero with a 1000 Faces – Joseph Campbell
- Save the Cat – Blake Snyder
- Screenplay – Syd Field
- Three Uses of the Knife – David Mamet
- On Directing Film – David Mamet
