TITLE: Tobit (script download)
The Book of Tobit (/ˈtoʊbɪt/)[a] is a 3rd or early 2nd century BCE Jewish work describing how God tests the faithful, responds to prayers, and protects the covenant community (i.e., the Israelites). It tells the story of two Jewish families, that of the blind Tobit in Nineveh and of the abandoned Sara in Ecbatana. Tobit’s son Tobias is sent to retrieve ten silver talents that Tobit once left in Rages, a town in Media; guided and aided by the angel Raphael he arrives in Ecbatana, where he meets Sarah. A demon named Asmodeus has fallen in love with her and kills anyone she intends to marry, but with the aid of Raphael the demon is exorcised and Tobias and Sarah marry, after which they return to Nineveh where Tobit is cured of his blindness.
The book is included in the Catholic and Orthodox canons but not in the Jewish; the Protestant tradition places it in the Apocrypha, and by the Anglican communion recognises it as part of scripture for purposes of edification and liturgy. The vast majority of scholars recognize it as a work of fiction with some historical references.
MOVIE PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

I want to thank my many screenwriting students at Portland State University, whose questions and discussions always help me clarify my own views about the craft of screenwriting. This book, published as I begin thinking about retiring, presents what are probably my final thoughts on the matter.
Those of you who read this may want to move on to the more comprehensive electronic version, which includes a large number of features in hypertext that are too cumbersome to include in a linear book. Information about the electronic Screenwright is at:
Although I prefer the electronic version, the paperback is the text I use in my university classes. As the ebook got updated over recent years, I found myself bringing in more and more handouts to class during the term. One reason for publishing a new edition is to reduce the necessity for this. I decided to give the new paperback a different title in order to emphasize that it is more than a revised edition.

Pre-writing? What pre-writing?

At any rate, give the same kind of thought (if you havent yet) to your major secondary characters as you are giving to your hero and villain.
If you didnt do a step outline, then you may still have work to do regarding your supporting characterseveryone other than your hero and villain. In the heros journey paradigm, for example, major supporting characters are identified as heros helpers and villains helpersthat is, supporting characters that are important must be related to the central conflict in some way, which means they are in relationship to one or both of the major players, the hero and villain (antagonist).
