According to the screenwriter Blake Snyder (1957–2009), any good logline
should pivot around a central irony. In his 2005 book Save the Cat! The Last
Book on Screenwriting You'll Ever Need, he gives the example of the 1988 film
Die Hard: a cop comes to LA to visit his estranged wife and her office building is
taken over by terrorists (Snyder, 2005, p. 6). Related to the pitch are the 'proposal'
and the 'treatment'. The former is a fairly loose expression to describe a
document you might ...

Another book that examines the unpleasant, unglamorous, undignified, and
downright gross aspects of space travel, but in a lighthearted and highly amusing
way. Blake Snyder. 2005. Save the Cat: The Last Book on Screenwriting You'll
Ever Need. Studio City: Michael Wiese Productions. An excellent, and influential,
book on screenwriting... as well as a little bit of a glimpse into Hollywood culture.
Although ostensibly the “last book on screenwriting you'll ever need,” there are
two ...

In my classes, when we seek the advice of a simple structural model, we often
call upon the late Blake Snyder's Save the Cat: the Last Book on Screenwriting
You'll Ever Need. Although, as you are now reading my book, you might infer that
I regard his title with a certain amount of skepticism. Sometimes it's a great boon
to have a piñata to hang up in class and beat with sticks to see what juicy
nuggets of help and advice fall out. What's important is not whether, but how you
use books ...

I took her workshop at AFI (American Film Institute) at the time, and to this day, I
think that book is essential for a producer's library. I would add Michael Hauge's
Selling Your Story in 60 Seconds and Writing Screenplays that Sell (Michael
Wiese Productions); the brilliant Blake Snyder's Save the Cat! The Last Book on
Screenwriting You'll Ever Need and Save the Cat! Strikes Back (Michael Wiese
Productions); and my mentor Pen Densham's Riding the Alligator (Michael Wiese

One of those Campbell prophets was Blake Snyder, who wrote the 2005 book
Save the Cat: The Last Book on Screenwriting You'll Ever Need. It was almost an
instruction manual for screenwriters on how to assemble a story. The book
became hugely popular, but there has since been backlash and serious concern
that the industry of moviemaking has become overly formulaic. The best recent
essay on this concern is the July 2013 Slate article by Peter Suderman titled “

Yet another perspective on the threeact linear structure has arisen more recently
from Blake Snyder in his book Save The Cat: The Last Book on Screenwriting
You'll Ever Need. He posited a very clear 15point series of 'beats', which are fairly
selfexplanatory if you've been following the linear template outlined in Chapter 7.
Note: Snyder works on a 110pages script length: OPENING IMAGE page 1
