<i>The Film Novelist</i> is the first primer on writing film novelsó whether you are a beginning novelist, a seasoned writer wanting to cross over into script/novel writing, or a creative writing teacher looking for proven ways to launch new writers. <br/><p>So, what is the difference between a screenplay and a film novel? Screenplays indicate solely what the audience is to see or hear on screen. Film novels are short, and take about as long to read as a feature film takes to watch. The description, dialogue, and narration of a film novel can simply be lifted out and used as the description, dialogue, and voice-over narration for a script. <br/><p>The author has devised a fifteen week program starting from a one-sentence pitch to the novel itself, which includes filming a scene from your script/novel. He grounds the discussion of early film novels, like <i>The Maltese Falcon, Of Mice and Men</i>, and <i>The Misfits</i>, to provide historical and theoretical background while detailing the practical, sequential approach for completing a short novel and script. </p>>

Dennis J. Packard is a professor at Brigham Young University. He holds a PhD in Philosophy (Stanford) and in Theater and Film (BYU). Packard has produced two films (Firecreek, Hottieboombalottie), and is currently involved with two in pre-production.
