Testimonials

Mr. Klick's book moves beyond the basic elements and gives great advice for intermediate to professional writers. His structural analysis of Hollywood's most successful films offers invaluable advice for plotting your story and showing you how some of the great filmmakers do it.”

Gil Fortis
Screenwriter, Urban Justice
“Since reading this book, I have watched about 20 movies so far that truly follow Todd Klick's insights. I was amazed seeing the first 10 beats of these films play out over and over. What an amazing secret for screenwriters. I recommend this book to writers, actors and students of films.”

Amy Jennings
Actor/Writer
"Something Startling Happens is a dazzling new nuts-and-bolts story guide that reveals the extremely important "in betweens" left out in other screenwriting books. Klick's book is the perfect companion to Blake Snyder's Save The Cat."
