The screenplay is by far the most important ingredient of a film, but yet at the same time to write a good or even an excellent script, is one of the most difficult things to do.
SCREENWRITING IS A CRAFT YOU HAVE TO INVEST IN IF YOU WANT IT TO BE EXCELLENT!!
First impressions count and new writers may only get given one chance to impress agents, executives and producers.
