So You Want to Be a Film or TV Screenwriter?

Series: Careers in Film and Television

By Amy Dunkleberger

This book in the CAREERS IN FILM AND TELVISION series focuses on the art of screenwriting, the foundation of contemporary filmmaking. The process of scriptwriting involves many steps, from idea to final draft. Until the late 1920s, films were silent. With the invention of movie sound, screenwriters began to put words into the mouths of actors. With that, the modern screenplay—that unique expression of pictures and sound—was born.
