It looks like a script, but is it a film? Writing Visually to excite Producers, Directors & Audiences image

This is not a ‘how-to’ screenwriting session as such, but instead focuses on a couple of aspects of writing for screen that stem from discussion with execs, readers and editors about common issues with scripts. You may have the world’s most engaging or moving story, but of course the way you tell it is crucial to its success.

Using a broad cross-section of films and scripts we look at different ways of capturing the reader’s imagination, setting up the story world and characters visually, and how, even as screenwriter – as opposed the director ­– you can find ways of reinforcing the story through image.
