TV & Film Script Examples to Help You Better Learn

Reading screenplays will help you not only develop your scriptwriting style as a writer, but reading scripts will also help you develop your style and vision as a filmmaker and help actors get more comfortable with understanding script formats and breaking down characters. 

It's often said, in order to be great at something you need to practic it for 1000 hours. While so many people want to get into the creative field, very few spend the time to intricately learn the craft and all the aspects of it. Scripts are not just for writers, a script is the key to creating and building that imaginative world that becomes a reality on stage and on set. Without developing a process when it comes to scripts, you're basically rowing a boat with no paddles. Whatever your interest is when it comes to filmmaking, a script is the jumping point for budgets, crew, cast, style, tone and even editing. It's also a valuable tool when it comes to creating a treatment, pitch deck or pitch doc - you can't have one without the other.
