From the critically-acclaimed independent filmmaker, Michael Roemer, comes Film Stories: Screenplays as Story, a highly-anticipated first collection of screenplays. Beyond film scripts, Film Stories is designed to help film students master concepts like three-act structure, conflict, surprise, rising action, and crisis, while crafting not only a story, but a story that tells. Volume One contains the screenplays for Nothing But a Man, The Plot Against Harry, Stone My Heart, and Pilgrim, Farewell. Volume One also features a comprehensive introduction entitled 'Beginnings,' in which Roemer discusses the creation of his screenplays and includes anecdotes on the making and distribution of his films that any screenwriter or filmmaker will find invaluable. Volume Two contains the screenplays for Losing Emily, Famous Long Ago, Mortal Longings, Act of God, and Sad but Funny.
Michael Roemer is Professor of Film at Yale University, where he has taught courses in filmmaking and screenwriting for more than 30 years. He is also the independent filmmaker of such movies as The Plot Against Harry, Nothing But a Man, Pilgrim Farewell, and the widely-celebrated documentary, Dying.
