Veteran script consultant Jill Chamberlain discovered in her work that an astounding 99 percent of first-time screenwriters don’t know how to tell a story. These writers may know how to format a script, write snappy dialogue, and set a scene. They may have interesting characters and perhaps some clever plot devices. But, invariably, while they may have the kernel of a good idea for a screenplay, they fail to tell a story. What the 99 percent do instead is present a situation. In order to explain the difference, Chamberlain created the Nutshell Technique, a method whereby writers identify eight dynamic, interconnected elements that are required to successfully tell a story. Now, for the first time, Chamberlain presents her unique method in book form with The Nutshell Technique: Crack the Secret of Successful Screenwriting. Using easy-to-follow diagrams (“nutshells”), she thoroughly explains how the Nutshell Technique can make or break a film script. Chamberlain takes readers step-by-step through thirty classic and contemporary movies, showing how such dissimilar screenplays as Casablanca, Chinatown, Pulp Fiction, The Usual Suspects, Little Miss Sunshine, Juno, Silver Linings Playbook, and Argo all have the same system working behind the scenes, and she teaches readers exactly how to apply these principles to their own screenwriting. Learn the Nutshell Technique, and you’ll discover how to turn a mere situation into a truly compelling screenplay story.

While the role of women in western society has changed since the time of the great classical eras of Greece and Rome, the heroines of ancient myth remain just as potent to modern audiences as they were for their original creators. Regardless of genre or medium, these women of antiquity retain their power to reinforce, challenge, or outright shatter popular beliefs about the attributes, limitations, and social roles of women. This collection of eight essays examines the legacy of the heroines of antiquity in a variety of contexts, from the page to the stage to the screen, in order to understand why Helen of Troy, the Amazons, and their fellow ladies of myth have remained such vital figures today, and how they have evolved to retain and increase their stature. The contributors to this volume adopt an array of perspectives in order to do justice to the rich legacy of mythic women. These authors hail from three different continents and specialize in multiple disciplines, including Classical Studies, English, and Gender Studies. These diverse approaches make this book applicable to scholars with a wide variety of skills and interests, and ensure the topic a multifaceted treatment in the tradition of the humanities.
