www.ScreenplayClass.com When we’re reading screenplays, which is a related but different question, the goal of a writer, I think, using the Horowitz system is to do two things. One To write the screenplay so that it writes like a movie on paper. That’s the most important thing. In other words — people don’t do this — if you can get the reader or executive to instantly recognize that they’re mentally watching a movie, they won’t put it down. Then once you’ve done this, is not make any stupid mistakes so they do put it down.Marilyn Horowitz, the author of “How to Write a Screenplay in 10 Weeks” and creator of The Horowitz Systemâ„¢, is an award-winning university teacher, a producer, a screenwriter, a script consultant and a successful writing coach.
