Tobit Writer

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.

Making Sense of

Here is an old screenwriting column of mine from the Cyber Film School. It’s still accurate today.

Today there is no excuse for incorrect format because there are free software programs that guide you. The best is Celtx, available for both PC and Mac (and even Linux), so you need to download it unless you already have a screenwriting program like Final Draft. You can get Celtx at http://www.celtx.com.

One reason screenplay format can become so confusing to students is that there are few available examples of what should be done. Published screenplays are not written in the format used for spec scripts, which are scripts written “on speculation” and then marketed after they are written. This is what beginners write. Published scripts are shooting scripts, which are different in several ways as a result of being the product of a collaboration between writer, director, producer and perhaps actors.
