Thank you for all this valuable information.
I'm a songwriter, not a screenplay writer, but really enjoyed this article. Great insight on titling a script and the aspect of how foreign markets play into the decision process. I also like the closure of how the script should enrich the live of the audience in some way.
Glad you enjoyed the article, John! For me, finding something worthwhile to explore and have my character discover about the human experience is the most rewarding thing about watching a movie. Happy writing to you as you explore your own themes.
