Shane Black and Syd Field at the American Screenwriters Associations' '2002 Screenwriting Hall of Fame Awards'

Syd Field: Screenwriting guru whose alumni included Darabont and who first popularised the three-act structure

Syd Field was a highly sought-after screenwriting teacher, renowned as a guru of the art of the screenplay. Of his eight books on the subject, the first, Screenplay: the Foundations of Screenwriting, is considered the bible of the art. He popularised the classic three-act paradigm, identifying important plot points and formulating a structure which not only reflected many existing films but which allowed writers to structure their own scripts. That he was never much in demand as a screenwriter himself throws an ironic sidelight on his career.
