Writing is a skill which can be mastered by formal training and practice. A film project or a short in length TV commercial begins with the script or screenplay. Proceeding to make a film without a script is setting a sail in the ocean without any navigation. An adequate screenplay recites the complete story, narrates all actions in the film, and distinguishes dialogues for every cast. It also describes a character’s visual aesthetic, which helps Casting Directors to cast for the role accordingly. It works as a blueprint for the movie that everyone involved in the film refers to while playing their respective roles. It can also predict the cost of the film, web series, or a TV show. For example, the script for web series like Jack Ryan can prepare producers for a bigger budget. On the contrary, a dialogue-driven script like Bheja Fry can be accommodated in a room with only a few casts, and can be accomplished on a small budget.
Although the writing style cannot be altered much, by pursuing a course in screenplay writing from a film school, different formats, types, and word processors exclusively used by professional screenplay writers can be learned.
Referring to the scenario at present, the screenplay writers are well-paid once they learn how to do their job well. Getting a degree or a certificate on screenplay writing from the best film schools like RSACE can land you in some of the best job offers.
