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

Film Director
A FILM DIRECTOR is a person who directs the making of a film . Generally, a film director controls a film's artistic and dramatic aspects and visualizes the screenplay (or script) while guiding the technical crew and actors in the fulfillment of that vision. The director has a key role in choosing the cast members , production design, and the creative aspects of filmmaking. Under European Union law, the director is viewed as the author of the film. The film director gives direction to the cast and crew and creates an overall vision through which a film eventually becomes realized, or noticed. Directors need to be able to mediate differences in creative visions and stay within the boundaries of the film's budget. There are many pathways to becoming a film director. Some film directors started as screenwriters, cinematographers , film editors or actors. Other film directors have attended a film school. Directors use different approaches. Some outline a general plotline and let the actors improvise dialogue, while others control every aspect, and demand that the actors and crew follow instructions precisely. Some directors also write their own screenplays or collaborate on screenplays with long-standing writing partners. Some directors edit or appear in their films, or compose the music score for their films

Film Producer
FILM PRODUCERS fill a variety of roles depending upon the type of producer. Either employed by a production company or independent , producers plan and coordinate various aspects of film production, such as selecting script, coordinating writing, directing and editing, and arranging financing. During the "discovery stage", the producer has to find and acknowledge promising material. Then, unless the film is supposed to be based on an original script, the producer has to find an appropriate screenwriter . For various reasons, producers cannot always supervise all of the production. In this case, the main producer may appoint executive producers , line producers , or unit production managers who represent the main producer's interests. The producer has the last word on whether sounds or music have to be changed, including deciding if scenes have to be cut. They are in charge of selling the film or arranging distribution rights as well. The producer's role can vary significantly from project to project, based on the circumstances and funding. They generally are in charge of things like hiring staff, creating filming schedules, checking and approving locations, and much more

The story, spanning 1945 to 1955, chronicles the family under the patriarch Vito Corleone , focusing on the transformation of Michael Corleone (Pacino) from reluctant family outsider to ruthless mafia boss . Paramount Pictures obtained the rights to the novel for the price of $80,000, before it gained popularity.

The musical score was composed primarily by Nino Rota with additional pieces by Carmine Coppola . The film was the highest-grossing film of 1972 and was for a time the highest-grossing film ever made . It won the Oscars for Best Picture , Best Actor (Brando) and Best Adapted Screenplay (for Puzo and Coppola). Its seven other Oscar nominations included Pacino, James Caan , and Robert Duvall for Best Supporting Actor and Coppola for Best Director
