Screenwriter
A SCREENPLAY WRITER (also called SCREENWRITER for short), SCRIPTWRITER, or SCENARIST is a writer who practices the craft of screenwriting , writing screenplays on which mass media , such as films , television programs , comics or video games , are based. CONTENTS * 1 Profession * 2 Film industry * 3 Script doctoring * 4 Development process * 5 Production involvement * 6 Union * 7 See also * 8 References PROFESSION Screenwriting is a freelance profession. No education is required to become a professional screenwriter, just good storytelling abilities and imagination . Screenwriters are not hired employees but contracted freelancers. Most, if not all, screenwriters start their careers writing on speculation (spec) and so write without being hired or paid for it. If such a script is sold, it is called a spec script . What separates a professional screenwriter from an amateur screenwriter is that professional screenwriters are usually represented by a talent agency . Also, professional screenwriters do not often work for free, but amateur screenwriters will often work for free and are considered "writers in training." Spec scripts are usually penned by unknown professional screenwriters and amateur screenwriters. There are a legion of would-be screenwriters who attempt to enter the film industry , but it often takes years of trial-and-error, failure, and gritty persistence to achieve success

The novel was published in English translation in 1933, and in a new, more literal, translation in 1995. CONTENTS * 1 Plot * 2 Literary and critical significance * 3 Translations * 4 See also * 5 References PLOT Radetzky March relates the stories of three generations of the Trotta family, professional Austro-Hungarian soldiers and career bureaucrats of Slovenian origin — from their zenith during the empire to the nadir and breakup of that world during and after the First World War .

Himalaya (film)
HIMALAYA (French : Himalaya: L'Enfance d'un chef) is a 1999 film directed by Eric Valli and was funded through France -based corporations. It was the first Nepalese film to be nominated in the Best Foreign Film category at the 72nd Academy Awards . Himalaya is a story set against the backdrop of the Nepalese Himalayas . At an altitude of five thousand metres in the remote mountain region of Dolpa , Himalaya is the story of villagers who take a caravan of yaks across the mountains, carrying rock salt from the high plateau down to the lowlands to trade for grain. An annual event, the caravan provides the grain that the villagers depend on to survive the winter. The film unfolds as a story of rivalry based on misunderstanding and distrust, between the aging chief and the young daring herdsman, who is both a friend and a rival to the chief's family, as they struggle for leadership of the caravan. The film is a narrative on the both traditions and the impermanent nature of human struggle to retain and express power in the face of the gods. "The gods triumph" is the call that echoes at the end of the film and expresses the balancing of karmic destinies. The extreme environment of the Himalayas is magnificently contrasted to the delicacy of humanity and the beauty of Tibetan culture. Himalaya was shot in widescreen over nine months on location in a region that can only be reached on foot, with all but two characters played by real chiefs, lamas and local villagers
