Three Acts

Here is Wells Root's version of throw a man in a tree and throw rocks at him. It's taken from his very practical book on screenwriting 'Writing the Script'.

Wells Root's book was the first book on screenwriting I ever got my hands on. It was jammed in the back corner of our local public library and I was the only person to ever take it out. I studied and studied and studied every word of it. I've devoured countless other books on the subject and even subjected myself to McKee's overly structured blather. Nothing matches the approach laid out by Root. Put that next to your Strunk & White and put pen to paper.
