A humorous and pithy guide to the craft of writing a screenplay and the business of being a screenwriter.

The stage at Hollywood’s Dolby Theater is lit. Movie stars abound in tuxes and gowns, and Bradley Cooper slowly opens the sealed envelope, glances to the audience, and reads “And the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay goes to….” You kiss your guest on the cheek, shake hands with Spielberg, and head for the stage.

Winning an Oscar is a moment that most writers only dream of. But for those daring and talented few brave enough to take their hopes to Hollywood, there are clear and tangible steps to take if one knows the path. The Aspiring Screenwriter’s Dirty Lowdown Guide to Fame and Fortune provides that path. And Andy Rose has walked it.

With years of experience with every major film studio and network, dozens of successful screenplays including feature films McHale’s Navy and Splash 2; the TV movie Richest Cat in the World; and TV shows Life With Louie and UC: Undercover, Andy knows the business. He’s here to debunk the big screen and teach you how to write a blockbuster screenplay and equally important, how to sell it.

Andy has worked with the best: Ron Howard, Tom Hanks, David Geffen, and Harvey Weinstein to name a few. He has filled this book with real life examples to learn from including contracts, screenplays, treatments, press, and more. For anyone who’s ever dreamed of writing a screenplay, for anyone who’s wondered how to sell one, this is a must read.
