What Does a Screenwriter Do Exactly?
If you are a film buff, a film student, a filmmaker, or all the above you’re already aware of what a screenwriter does.
For those who don’t know what a screenwriter does, it is as simple as this.
It is the screenwriter who sits down and takes on the daunting task of creating an entire cast of characters, the series of events, story structure and engaging dialogue.
This process results in the a screenplay, which is then used as a blueprint by the director, cinematographer, actors etc. to create the world that unfolds onscreen.
This all sounds magical right?
Three Problems Every Screenwriter Faces
In a perfect world, every screenplay would get made into a film. In reality, once a screenplay is completed by a screenwriter, three issues get in the way of that dream.
- Producers who want to make the EXACT film that you have written can’t find you.
- The reverse is also true. If you’re lucky enough to have an agent, it’s hard for them to get your script in front of a producer, director etc.
- Or like so many screenwriters, especially those just starting out, you simply don’t have enough exposure to get your screenplay in front of the right people.
