Screenwriter RequirementsRequirements for the screenwriter
Let me sense something. When I end up feeling the same as I did at the beginning, either try to either reschedule it, change the screenplay, or just mail it to someone without emotive expectation of your storyline. Let me see, listen and touch the figures and the people. In the end, the history and everything it contains must be on screen, so it should be phrased in a way that is useful for interpretation and should be spelled out as if it were well-deserved.
However, this part will not live through the verbatim transmission to the monitor, as it goes through a whole series of processes of interpreting and visualizing by countless individuals to make it come alive. So if the voices are removed unavoidably, the storyline will be executed even better, the character will be better left alone, and the dialog will work out better.
When it comes to producing materials, there must be more fire on the side than fumes. Or, even if you are an efficient author, you can be an inefficient screenwriter without keeping an eye on the big picture at all. It is the author's task to enter the rest of the word in an efficient and convincing way, to make an investment in the history and to deal with the people.
Loving your tale, but writing it for others. It is a modest container or car through which history runs so that others can appreciate and savour it, just like the author who has worked over it. Their history is a present for another individual, so make it about how it makes them sense rather than how it makes them sense - let it be a by-product of the first.
If authors are writing only for themselves and how they are feeling about it, I can tell you to keep these tales to yourself (because everyone needs individual, intimate inspirations now and then). Please mail me what you have penned for the enjoyment of others. Then everyone will win, even the author.
It is my business to serve a particular group of authors and provide materials to a particular group of buyers, regardless of my own preference for the materials. However, I still enjoy the work more when I can deal with materials that meet these requirements. I would like to think that these individual requirements make the footage more powerful and give it a better opportunity to move from page to page.
Having authored five scripts (though many years ago), I know it's a trick to get from FADE IN to FADE OUT, so regardless of what lies in between, it's an honour to start and finish the game.
