In 'Von der Figur zum Charakter' setzt sich Linda Seger mit einem essentiellen Bereich des Filmemachens auseinander, dem Erschaffen glaubwürdiger und spannender Filmfiguren. Mit ihrer bewährten Mischung aus Beispielen, Anekdoten, Interviews und Anleitungen erklärt und betont sie die Bedeutung der Recherche, des Dialogs, des persönlichen und konkreten Hintergrunds und der Psychologie, um unvergeßliche Figuren zu erschaffen.Linda Seger: "Die Gespräche mit erstklassigen Schriftstellern haben mir deutlich gemacht, welcher Kenntnisse und Kunstfertigkeiten es bedarf, großartige Figuren zu schaffen. Am meisten beeindruckte mich, daß jeder dieser Schriftsteller den Eindruck erweckte, daß er seine oder ihre innere Stimme gefunden hatte. Durch meine Arbeit als Drehbuchberaterin weiß ich, daß Schriftsteller lernen können, an diese persönliche Stimme zu glauben und sie weiterzuentwickeln. Talent ist mit Sicherheit ein wichtiger Teil des Schreibens, doch es fliegt kaum jemandem zu. Zum Talent müssen harte Arbeit hinzukommen, eine gewisse Ausbildung, viel Übung, und man muß lernen, an den eigenen Standpunkt zu glauben und ihn zu formulieren.""Fazit: 'Von der Figur zum Charakter' und 'Das Geheimnis guter Drehbücher' sind wichtige Arbeitshilfen für Anfänger, immer wieder mit Beispielen untermauert. Aber auch erfahrene Autoren können sich hier Techniken aneignen, die ihnen in Problemfällen weiterhelfen." (Jean-Paul Raabe, Film & TV Kameramann, 48. Jg., Nr. 11/1999)Linda Seger arbeitete als Drehbuch-Beraterin (script consultant) bereits an mehr als 1500 Drehbüchern und über 70 Filmen mit. Über das Drehbuchschreiben hat sie mehrere Bücher verfaßt, darunter den internationalen Bestseller 'Making a Good Script Great'.

Noted scholars of Latin American and Spanish literature here explore the literary history of Latin America through the representation of iconic female characters. Focusing both on canonical novels and on works virtually unknown outside their original countries, the essays discuss the important ways in which these characters represent nature, history, race and sex, the effects of globalization, and the unknowable “other.” They examine how both male and female writers portray Latin American women, reinterpreting the dynamics between the genders across boundaries and historical periods. Drawing on recent theories in literary criticism, gender, and Latin American studies, these essays illuminate the women characters as conduits for the appreciation of their countries and cultures.

What happens when 'happy ever after' isn't quite so simple? Today's attitudes to love and romance are as varied and diverse as individuals, and audiences want and need more sophisticated, authentic films that show how we live and love now. So what does this mean for the screenwriter developing a romcom? And how do they write heart-warming stories for a genre that is constantly evolving, from bromcom to zomcom to famcom? Writing and Selling Romantic Comedy Screenplays offers a fresh approach to creating narratives for this ever-changing genre. Moving away from rigid and limited definitions that have evolved out of mainstream genre films, the book embraces a working definition that crosses cultural and national boundaries to give screenwriters around the world a truly international perspective on writing comedic love stories. It will be the first screenwriting guide to reflect the diversity of approaches in today's films that deal with the human need for emotional and physical intimacy using humour - the contemporary romantic comedy.
