    Off the Page examines the business and craft of screenwriting in the era of media convergence. Daniel Bernardi and Julian Hoxter use the recent history of screenwriting labor coupled with close analysis of scripts in the context of the screenwriting paraindustry—from “how to write a winning script” books to screenwriting software—to explore the state of screenwriting today. They address the conglomerate studios making tentpole movies, expanded television, Indiewood, independent animation, microbudget scripting, the video games industry, and online content creation. Designed for students, producers, and writers who want to understand what studios want and why they want it, this book also examines how scripting is developing in the convergent media, beneath and beyond the Hollywood tentpole. By addressing specific genres across a wide range of media, this essential volume sets the standard for anyone in the expanded screenwriting industry and the scholars that study it.

    Russian vocabulary book + Russian dictionaryThis Russian vocabulary book contains more than 3000 words and phrases which are grouped by topic to make it easier for you to pick what to learn first. On top of that, the index in the second half of the book provides you with a basic Russian-English as well as English-Russian dictionary which makes this a great resource for learners of all levels.
     
    What you can expect from this book:This Russian learning resource is a combination of Russian vocabulary book and a two-way basic Russian dictionary:Part 1 - Topic based Russian vocabulary book: This is the main part of the book and represents a list of chapters each containing Russian vocabularies for a certain topic. The Russian vocabularies in the chapters are unsorted on purpose to separate remembering them from a defined alphabetical order. You can start at any chapter and dive directly into the topics that interest you the most.Part 2 - Basic English-Russian dictionary: The index in the second half of the book can be used as a basic Russian dictionary to look up words you have learned but can't remember or learn new words you need.Part 3 - Basic Russian-English dictionary: Easy to use and with just the right amount of words, this third part finishes off with a second index that allows you to look for Russian words and directly find the English translation
     
    How to use this Russian vocabulary book:Not sure where to start? We suggest you first work your way through the verbs, adjectives and phrases chapters in part one of the book. This will give you a great base for further studying and already enough vocabulary for basic communication. The Russian dictionaries in part two and three can be used whenever needed to look up words you hear on the street, English words you want to know the Russian translation for or simply to learn some new words.
     
    Some final thoughts:Vocabulary books have been around for centuries and as with so many things that have been around for some time, they are not very fashionable and a bit boring, but they usually work very well. Together with the basic Russian dictionary parts, this vocabulary book is a great resource to support you throughout the process of learning Russian and comes in particularly handy at times when there is no internet to look up words and phrases.
