Abstract:

This book is aimed at screenwriters, producers, development executives and educators interested in the crime genre, and provides an invaluable basis for crafting a film story that considers both audience and market expectations without compromising originality. Alongside a brief historical overview of the crime genre, is analysis of various crime sub-genres and their key conventions, including: police, detective, film noir, gangster, heist, prison and serial killer. The book focuses on the creative use of these conventions and offers strategies for focusing theme and improving characterisation, story design, structure and dialogue. Writing exercises are provided to assist the script development process and strategies for revision are discussed along with key questions to consider before approaching creative or financial partners. This highly practical, 'learning by doing' approach is reinforced with case studies and the views of screenwriters and producers working in the crime genre.
