Blake Snyder (October 3, 1957 – August 4, 2009) was an American screenwriter, consultant, author and educator based in Los Angeles who, through his Save the Cat trilogy of books on screenwriting and story structures, became one of the most popular writing mentors in the film industry. Snyder led international seminars and workshops for writers in various disciplines, as well as consultation sessions for some of Hollywood's largest studios.

Save the Cat! is a popular screenwriting book (and book series) by Blake Snyder, which breaks down screenplays into 15 beats (and further into 40) that all screenplays should contain.

The title comes from the idea that a film’s hero should do something nice the first time we meet him — ie save a cat — that will make it easy for the audience to like and root for him.
