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.

Cindy has learned a lot about marketing in the traditional school of hard knocks, ones own experience. Here is some of what shes learned:
With your permission I would like to send the 110-page WGA registered screenplay for your review. Is a standard release acceptable, or is there an in-house one you would prefer? Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
Set against the glittering backdrop of Las Vegas, Noble and his family discover taking a gamble is not always an act of desperation, it can be a statement of faith. Noble has little time to set things right, and for the first time in his life, hes not sure what right is.
Noble McAlaster struggles with keeping secret a truth that could forever change his strained relationship with his daughter, in an attempt to demonstrate his love for his terminally ill wife. Noble fears if his secret is known his family will misinterpret his actions as those of redemption, rather than selfless love.

Among my students, writers with fiction backgrounds have the hardest time with screenwriting. This is because the rhetorical universes of these two narrative forms are so far apart. Consequently, when they begin screenwriting, students with fiction backgrounds greatly overwrite everything that goes into the action element: descriptions of place, descriptions and movement of characters. Moreover, they wallow in getting into their characters heads, something that is rarely done, if ever, in screenwriting.
Screenplay Rhetoric v. Fiction Rhetoric
Use this as a model for your own rhetorical style.
At the level of rhetoric, note that this is only a step above See Spot run. Rhetorical variety is added with compound verbs and modifying elements but notice that not a single subordinate clause is presentno complex sentences!
