A screenplay doesn’t even have to be produced to be an enjoyable reading and learning experience.
Instead of paying $15 to go see a summer blockbuster movie, download a movie script onto your Kindle. It’s a fun, entertaining way to “see” movies without being stuck indoors.
I wondered how screenplays would never see the light of day without a production deal. Perhaps, if screenplays were published as literary works, independent of any film studio, they would have a life beyond contests and script coverage.
