Book Description

Here's something people often forget: it takes a person to write movies. Screenwriting involves writing down ideas so that they'll be easily translated into visual art. A screenplay, or script, is the backbone of any movie. It's the first step in the moviemaking process. Almost everybody on the movie set has a copy of the script because it reveals what they should be doing. It tells the actors how to act and what to say, the production designer how to build the set, and the director how to shoot the scene. A good script has many facets (fame, fortune, love, marriage, affairs, divorce, despair, and so on); choose the ones you want. However, screenplays have their own language, their own slang, if you will. Before You Start... At the outset, you must realize that screenwriting is a competitive sport. The Film Writers Association of India registers over 5,000 scripts a year, and less than 1% of them are made into motion pictures. Everyone in and every second person elsewhere has a script they're trying to sell, so your chances as a beginner are slim to none. And fame shouldn't be a factor in your decision either. Not only does the public at large never to find out who wrote a film, but the major Film producers often show the same lack of respect toward screenwriters. But if you are passionate about writing, about movies, and about making your dreams come true, then you should seriously consider writing for the movies. When you think about it, screenwriting is the toughest job in Bollywood. The screenwriter is the only person on a film crew who starts with absolutely nothing. That said, let's write this baby.
