Screenwriting is the art and craft of writing scripts for films, television shows, and other visual media. A screenwriter’s job is to create the story, characters, dialogue, and overall structure of a production, which is then used by a director and a film crew to bring the script to life on screen. Screenplays can be written for feature films, television episodic series, web series, animation and other visual mediums. The format of a screenplay is very specific and follows certain conventions, such as scene headings, action lines, character introductions and dialogue. A screenwriter is the person who creates the story, the characters, the dialogue, and the overall structure of a film or television production.
