Syd Field, who is hailed as the Guru of Screenwriting and author of the Screenwriting book The Foundations of Screenwriting, has passed away at the age of 77 due to anemia. He introduced the 3-act structure in screenplay and was script consultant to many of the movie studios including Fox and Disney among others. His book was published in 1979 and has been revised many times since. Many of the film colleges and universities use Syd Field’s book for screenwriting students, including myself. He will be missed by his family, friends, and the filmmaking community worldwide.
