Every now and then screenwriter's start a project and don't know how to stop from starting over again, again and again.

Here's an example:

 The Film Mechanics Screenwriting Workbook

Written By Deri Tyton

Genre: What's that?

Theme:  I never use one of those!

A screenwriter has three days to finish a script and goes in search of The Film Mechanics workbook, but she must overcome the invincible, decrepit Father Time so that she’ll finish her project in enough time to pay her rent.

What’s Next?
This used to be the biggest, most nerve reckoning question I would have after I thought of a story I wanted to write about. 

Because I’ve read some of the most prolific screenplay books, watched countless numbers of videos and attended lots of seminars, classes, and workshops and I STILL couldn’t piece together a process that would help me in the development of my screenplays.

Thus, I began to create a workflow for myself that would assist me in writing my screenplays, and what I figured out what was, why didn't a book like this exist?  Why didn't a book tell me how to move throughout a PROCESS, where I would have all of these structural and mechanical elements that weren't written in a wordy, dense, overlapping or understated explanation?

THE FILM MECHANICS SCREENWRITING WORKBOOK is $20.00 each, and I am using this platform to raise $4000 to PRE-SELL one hundred (100) copies of the workbooks (plus shipping and handling).   

Everyone who invests $20.00 or more will receive a copy of THE FILM MECHANIC SCREENWRITING WORKBOOK.  

IMPORTANT:  The campaign runs until MARCH 1, 2019.   Then all books will be shipped out on or by MARCH 3, 2019. 

Each donation for the workbook includes:
✔️Cover Design
✔️Text Formatting
✔️Book Printing

Then the WHOLE BOOK is yours!  

Why you 
should buy this workbook?

THE FILM MECHANICS SCREENWRITING WORKBOOK helps screenwriters develop a process to work on their script, pilot, or manuscript.  It also helps save time and prevent overthinking while the screenwriter advances through the growth and development of story and characters.  

Since I began using the workbook two years ago, I have produced or polished 100+ screenplays, pilots and web series. 

THE FILM MECHANICS SCREENWRITING WORKBOOK is more than just a tool or resource, it's where the spiritual journey of writing takes place.  It'll take the reader/writer deep inside of themselves where the stories, characters, scenes, history, fears, and ideas invoke conflict.  That conflict will cause a crisis that'll push its character toward a climax, and beyond that climax, they will meet an unnerving resolution.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention that this workbook is a part of THE FILM MECHANICS SCREENWRITING CLASS, that's offered twice a year (winter and fall).

Thank you for every purchase!  I am so appreciative for everyone that will invest their money and time in this project.   Thank You, again.

Greetings All,

I hope this email finds you in good faith. I am sending an update on THE FILM MECHANICS SCREENWRITING WORKBOOK. We have reached the financial goal to publish, yet, the money has not been released into the account to send the order in. Once the money is released then the publisher will design the book and it takes about 5 days to print. The estimated time of arrival of the workbook is February 22, 2019.

I apologize for any miscommunications and inconvenience about the workbook schedule. If you have any questions PLEASE forward them to me A.S.A.P.

Again, my goal was to have the book back by the beginning of class.

First off, Thank You!
Second, I am short of my goal, but never fail we are still moving with publishing the book. I'm looking like it will take another week to get it together, but we are moving forward. I still need to raise about $500 to get the first print done. I will definitely keep everyone posted and to those who have donated, you will receive your book before the first of February. Thanks again and please share with anyone you may feel can utilize such a helpful book.
