screenplaywise – film section

The history of cinema bears the distinction that the artifact, known as the cinematograph, predated the language of film.

Our focus shifts from the question “What constitutes cinema?” to the exploration of “How do screenwriters capture the distinctive artistry of film?”

Within this page, we will delve into an analysis of various aspects, encompassing characters, symbols, plot and structure, scenes, set-ups and pay-offs, genres, dialogue, and more.

Behind the Scenes of Craftsmanship

Explore the artistry that goes beyond the screen as we delve into the mechanics of writing for the screen. From scriptwriting and direction to cinematography and editing, here are some inspiring quotes.

“One of the things you do as a writer is grasp for resonant symbols and imagery without necessarily fully understanding it.”

“I don’t really decide what the core of the story is before I write. I write to figure out what the story is.”
