Abstract

Screenwriting. The art of fiction for the silver screen. How does this art turn? How are these stories concocted and developed? And how do they become films in a theater near you?

I chose to answer those questions through practice, through the conception and development of the story of The Construct, an immense artificial creation buried deep beneath the Arctic glaciers. The final result provides an example of the background work of story development, the expression of the developed idea in a brief treatment, and a guide for the submission of such ideas to Hollywood and hopeful production.
