Hey, everyone--

If you haven't heard, I wanted to let you all know some very sad news... one of film's most amazing teachers and writers, Blake Snyder, passed away yesterday. He died in his home of cardiac arrest. Blake is best known as the author of the incredible Save the Cat books, which helped thousands upon thousands of screenwriters do their best work.

Here's a link to his website, where fans are posting words of sorrow and condolences...

And another link to Dennis Willis's remembrance in last night's San Francisco Examiner...

Blake will be greatly missed, and the art and craft of screenwriting has lost a true leader, mentor, and champion...
