Timothy Corrigan's Short Guide to Writing about Film (8th Edition), ISBN 9780205236398 serves as a brief yet clear resource for film enthusiasts of all ages, with the hopes of developing their writing skills. This guide provides readers with instruction on how to translate their passion for movie watching into an equally peaked interest for writing about the actual movies themselves. The honing of writing skills takes place through the integration of the most well-known films to those not quite as recognizable. The inclusion of relatable examples helps the user grasp major writing concepts from note taking and first drafts to revised essays and research projects as well as how film analysis can take on a more subtle yet meticulous part of the writing process. Timothy Corrigan organizes the many facets of Short Guide to Writing about Film (8th Edition) across seven concise, yet thorough chapters. Chapter 1 serves as a clear introduction to 'Writing about the Movies' followed by chapter 2 which gives tips on 'Preparing to Watch and Preparing to Write.' Chapter 3 includes important 'Film Terms and Topics' while chapter 4 presents 'Six Approaches to Writing About Film.' 'Style and Structure in Writing' is the focus of chapter 5 followed by tips on 'Researching the Movies' in chapter 6. This compact text concludes with a final chapter, that of chapter 7 which closes with a look at 'Manuscript Form.' An appendix is also included within the pages of this text as a resource on 'Symbols Commonly Used in Marking Papers.'
