PRLog - Jun. 26, 2012 - Shocking - Syd Field Failed 980,000 Aspiring Scriptwriters

98% of the movie scripts pitched to Hollywood end up in the trash. Why? Ask any pro Script Reader,(with scars from slit wrists & lots of missing hair – pulled out - sick of having to read bad movie scripts), those who are responsible for reading incoming scripts and tagging them yes or no in Hollywood, and you will find they all say the same thing - out of 100 scripts, two, maybe two are worth considering.  That being true, consider the claim that Syd Field, touted as the legendary grandfather guru of screenwriting technique, boasting he has sold over 1,000,000 copies of his screenwriting books, has then failed 980,000 of those aspiring scriptwriters.
Lena Banks, a scriptwriting mentor, the Founder and Host of Think Tank Ink MasterMind INKubator for Scriptwriters in Sherman Oaks, who has been an entertainment industry Reader for over 18 years states “A committed aspiring scriptwriter must know how to write well written low-budget movie scripts. I teach them how to make a movie script better. Hollywood is a business and the artsy fartsy storytelling movie scriptwriting isn’t going to cut it if they want to get their start, sell a movie script and see it made.  98% of the movie scripts I get are just stories. Movie scripts are not stories.” Banks’ method of mentoring and ‘how-two’ process for low-budget movie script writing is getting rave reviews and great results from her writers worldwide.
How is it possible, when Syd Field shows such an illustrious track record, that so many scripts stink?  Writer/Director (The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Funny People) Judd Apatow’s testimony for Syd states "What I learned in Syd Field's class was here's how Annie Hall works, and here's how Witness works, and then I begin to think, 'OK now how would I do it differently than that?'
Lena can tell your readers:
   How they can get valuable one-on-one help for proper scriptwriting
   Which Syd Field methods to follow
   What is scriptwriting reality and how to ‘write to sell’
   How scriptwriting can be profitable when done right
   How an actor can write and star in their own movie
   How a director can get quality low-budget scripts
