The Modern Film Industry

The Modern Film Industry

A series of articles entitled "A professional writer." Article number 1 "Film producers also cry or what will save the national cinema?" Modern film industry is literally riddled with phrases producers and directors of catastrophic shortage of quality screenplays. At the same time, when some writer sends his next screenplay for consideration to the production company or film studio, he gets an answer that " Due to the large number of scripts sent in your work will be reviewed within two to three months. " If you think about the reasons for lack of quality scripts, it can be only two options. First – now write a little script (which is clearly not the case), the second – written very little qualitative scenarios, and they are lost in the general mass, like pearls on the rubbish pit. For this reason, it turns out that the producers and editors of film studios, in search of good scripts already have their hands smeared with paint from the printer and tortured by their eyes as stupid and uninteresting stories, and a good script, as one of a hundred or more texts before them could not even get there. And so continues month after month and year after year. The harm from a large number of non-professional scenario works eats holes in the pockets of producers and minds of the poor spectator in the cinema and national cinema transformed into a "field of miracles", where the future success of the film largely based on guesswork and assumptions.
