What We Mean By "Screenplay"

Call it whatever you want, but it is what it is.

Before there were movies, there were plays. Live theatre performances entertained the masses for centuries. So, yeah, a "screenplay" is a play written for the screen. In this case, a movie screen you'd find at the cinemas (or even your own home!). Screenwriters compose these modern plays for film, and even videogame productions.

Its principal format and layout are universally understood by industry performers and workers at all levels. And it is this very unique style that separates screenplays from novels.

Inside a Screenplay

You've read books and novels, right? Well, these aren't them.

If you've never read a screenplay before, then its appearance may seem a little jarring at first.

Unlike novels, the dialogue of a screenplay is written mainly for performers. Similarly, the "action" blocks are used as a "guide" to help the cast (and crew) visualize a scene. And, depending on the screenwriter, "action" blocks may be extremely detailed or brief and to-the-point.

Inside 8FLiX, you'll read screenplays written by diverse screenwriters who each bring their own style of writing while fitting nicely within a recognizable format that has stood the test of time.

What's the difference between a screenplay and a novel.
