The screen writer

Copy the text below to embed this resource

One in a series of twelve, one-reel films designed to present behind-the scenes activities of the motion picture industry. This film pictures a typical screen writer and analyzes his job.  The task of the screen writer is to take a book or a story, strip it down to its elements, and put it together again so that characters move and live, so that the printed word is transformed into visual and audio patterns.  To accomplish this task, he must know all about the technical aspects of picture making. | Content information imported from original IUCAT entry: "This is a behind the scenes look at the screenwiter.
