Though film is an audio-visual medium, it all starts with the written word. Without the screenwriter, nothing goes up on the screen.

At its best, film is a means for people to reach out to each other, to form a connection, to explore some complicated aspect of human interaction. The screenwriter is the one who begins this journey. Great screenwriters have a natural curiosity about themselves and the world, a love of storytelling, and a mastery of storytelling techniques to do all this in a compelling and entertaining way.

A screenwriter has a lot of power-and a lot of responsibility. Seeing a cast and crew of dozens work tirelessly to bring one's words to life is one of the most exhilarating things a person can experience. All of those people are there to serve the script, so the writer must make every page of that script count.
