Dan OBannon famously crafted his screenplays using a self-designed system which he called dynamic structure. This book outlines how OBannons method differs from those of other well-known screenwriting gurus, and illustrates with examples from classic (and not-so-classic) films how dynamic structure can be applied to craft narrative and character. OBannon also includes his insights on subjects such as the logic of the three-act structure, the role of the producer in screenplay development, and the psychological principle known as hedonic adaptation, which has a unique effect on the structuring of screen stories.
