WE CELEBRATE WRITERS
Most people think that the director created the vision for the movies they watch. They’re often surprised when they discover that almost every movie or TV show you see was originally created, written, and rewritten long before the director ever heard of the project…by a screenwriter!
“To make a great film you need three things – the script, the script and the script.”
– Alfred Hitchcock, Director
“[Screenwriters are] a hugely undervalued asset in Hollywood: they’re architects, they make us look good, often times their jobs are very hard…They’re alone in rooms in their underwear, weeping softly with their tears working as lube for their old fashioned typewriter machines. So I accept this on the screenwriters’ behalf.”
– Ryan Reynolds, Actor
