Robert McKee's screenwriting workshops have earned him an international reputation for inspiring novices, refining works in progress and putting major screenwriting careers back on track. Quincy Jones, Diane Keaton, Gloria Steinem, Julia Roberts, John Cleese and David Bowie are just a few of his celebrity alumni. Writers, producers, development executives and agents all flock to his lecture series, praising it as a mesmerizing and intense learning experience.

In Story, McKee expands on the concepts he teaches in his $450 seminars (considered a must by industry insiders), providing readers with the most comprehensive, integrated explanation of the craft of writing for the screen. No one better understands how all the elements of a screenplay fit together, and no one is better qualified to explain the "magic" of story construction and the relationship between structure and character than Robert McKee.

  • Story

    Robert McKee's "Story" is much more than an informative textbook on the basics of screenwriting. It locates in time and space the value of screenwritiing together with existential life as we know it. It deftly explores and expands upon myriad elements of philosophy, history and psychology with great depth. I am impressed by McKee's wealth of understanding of the human condition as well as his encyclopedic knowledge of his craft. It is a very hard book to put down. I highly recommend it anyone intersted in gaining insight into the human condition.
