The grandfather of screenwriting tutors and author Syd Field died earlier this week. We remember him with this short video in which he tells us what he learned from Sam Peckinpah: a strikingly simple strategy for tackling act two.
Update 21 October 2015: Sadly the Video was removed, so the link no longer works. I have tried locating an other source, but couldn’t find one. If you know of a place where this video is posted, please let us know, so we can restore the link. Thanks!

Karel Segers wrote his first produced screenplay at age 17. Today he is a story analyst with experience in acquisition, development and production. He has trained students worldwide, and worked with half a dozen Academy Award nominees. Karel speaks more European languages than you have fingers on your left hand, which he is still trying to find a use for in his hometown of Sydney, Australia. The languages, not the fingers.
