PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

When you are ready to send off a script into the marketplace, there are new guidelines to follow.

Begin with small independent prodcos, i.e., not with studios and not with agents. Your first goal is to get a reading from a producer.

Beginning writers usually need three or four scripts under their belts before they are ready to market.

Compare your work against material that has sold by reading as many screenplays as you can. Here is where it’s valuable to read the early drafts available at a website like Drew’s-Script-O-Rama at http://www.scriptorama.com. Remember that produced movies have gone through an entire development process after they were purchased.

These examples show the range of writing within the general principle of “minimalist” rhetoric – in fact, you can write detail, and should, but at the same time you need to make your script an easy, even a quick, read. So don’t overdo it. You are not a fiction writer.

This is closer yet to the rhetoric of fiction, though a novelist still would add considerably more detail than what we find here.

“Carolyn enters through the kitchen, flushed and angry. She just stands there, staring at Lester. After a moment, he looks up at her. “

“Lester is sprawled on the couch in his underwear, drinking a BEER and controlling the car. His working out is beginning to produce results. The room, too, seems changed: sloppier, more lived in.
