"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."
John Phillip Dayton Executive Producer, Director, Writer, The Waltons, Eight Is Enough, Matlock, The Ray Bradbury Theatre
“Thrilled to learn about the Something Startling Happens story beats. I attended a screenwriting conference in Burbank and the team asked Todd Klick to teach. I could thank each one of them. Todd's lecture, his demeanor and content inspired me. So happy I fell into this class!”
Phyllis Kagwira Directors Guild of America
“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.”
