Scripts of films are basically the complete blueprint to everything about a film. Screenplay writers are the people that compose these scripts. They are often based on the stories written by others, but they can also be originally composed solely for the screen. When a film project is being developed it often helps to use previous written works that have already gained an audience on their own. If the story previously resonated with an audience in written form, it will have a better chance to be a successful film. Once a script is written a film producer or assistant director breakdowns the script into digestible parts to create a filming schedule. These worksheets will have students compare the work of authors that compose scripts and how well the translate to the screen.
