The Screenwriter
To be a screenwriter, you have to be an excellent storyteller, because movies tell stories. Some films are original works, while others are adapted from novels or real-life events. Screenwriters carefully craft compelling stories and help transfer them from the printed page to the big screen. In “Meet the Moviemakers,” you’ll see actual scripts from some of Hollywood’s biggest films, and learn how they evolved into their final form with the input of the directors and actors who make the screenwriter’s words come to life. You’ll also get a sneak peek into the special process used for scripting animated features like the new feature film, Shrek 2.
