I'm someone intending to write my first screenplay and have been doing my study and research for a little while now. More than any screenwriting knowledge I been exposed to so far, what Michael Hauge has to say here really hits the spot. You ever get that feeling.. when somebody advises you in a way that makes complete and utter sense in a way it never did when explained by others before them? It's not just what he says, it's how he says it, it's his pacing, and especially some of the examples. Importantly, his advice strikes me as very honest. What's great is that this covers the 'end-to-end' of the process. No one element of knowledge will turn anybody into an expert, as screenwriting is a creative art and the boundaries are being pushed all of the time. However, if you want to know how to give yourself the best chance of getting your foot in the door, this would have to be it. It helps plenty that he is a very engaging speaker too.
