Frequently asked questions
Screenwriting is the art of creating a script to be used in a film, television show, online video, or any other audiovisual medium. Its elements include scene descriptions, action directions, transitions, and dialogue. At its most basic level, the screenplay is the instruction manual for what happens on screen. Every important bit of information that audiences see and hear should be included in the screenplay. However, many details should be left out for directors and actors to explore.
