Screenwriting Guidelines

Confused by contradictory information on screenwriting? We believe "story is king" but it never hurts to avoid getting on a Hollywood reader's bad side. We provide some generally-accepted screenwriting guide based on real-life experiences from representation and production company readers.

The concept of a "genre film" is sometimes used as a derogatory term for films that follow genre conventions. Yet, "genre films" year after year are the widest-reaching, often career-making, cultural landmarks that drive the financial viability of the film industry -- not only in Hollywood but around the world.

In fact, the ability to convey your story, your artistic expression as a filmmaker, through the conventions of a genre -- sometimes, bending or subverting those conventions -- can result in some of the strongest films in history. And, of course, it doesn't hurt that genre films are highly commercial.
