Akers going to China with Viki King and Robert McKee

My book is now out in Chinese. Oddly, with Jack Black on the cover. I’ve been invited to speak in a week or so at the Beijing Screenwriting Seminar. Robert McKee, Viki King, and myself…

Should be a fascinating trip. I’ve never been west of Venice Beach…

I’ll report in from Beijing.

    Hi William,

    Almost through your book – very wise! Can you tell me if Screen Treatments have a “Hollywood” format that is as “picky” as the screenplay? Layout, font etc.

      Sorry I took so long to respond. I was in China and they don’t let you access WordPress.
      Treatments are not picky compared to scripts. Times New Roman, Courier, Cambria… Arial. Whatever font looks good.
      Go to johnaugust.com to see some treatments.
      Good luck!

  3. Please, tell us about your trip to China!
