Screenwriting is the art of condensing a fiction or non-fiction story to its most basic, visual elements. It is writing a play; with scenes, characters, dialog, and storyline, all with a mind for how it will play out on the big screen, instead of on stage. Although a well-written screenplay will still convey the richness of the scenes and the background of the characters, everything in a screenplay story is condensed, so that (usually) the whole story can be told and understood in no more than two hours, or 120 pages; or 45 minutes, if it is an hour TV show.
