A film is really just an explicitly visualized storytelling medium. Without a cohesive and compelling story to tell, it falls apart and becomes a waste in movie making resources.  That’s where the scriptwriter comes in.  A story, either as an adaptation from an existing literature or originally crafted, can lend itself to becoming a script at the hands of a competent scriptwriter.   The script contains all the basic elements of sound, camera angling, lighting, and dialogues with which a director can paint his vision of the script into film.  A resume to be a scriptwriter must include a portfolio of scripts that have been successfully produced into film.
