Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) was hired to direct Jurassic World without being allowed to see the screenplay first. And when he finally saw the screenplay, he didn’t understand it. He says that he warned Steven Spielberg, “if I direct this screenplay, it’s going to be a bad movie.” Talking to Den of Geek, Trevorrow explains how he saved himself from having to direct a screenplay that he didn’t actually understand at all:

It is a truth, universally acknowledged but largely ignored, that the script is the most crucial component of a film. A director may have at his disposal A-list movie stars, a lavish budget, extravagant costumes and production design and still produce a dud if the very soul of the film — its script — is left wanting.

Blogs, or Web logs, are online journals that are updated frequently, sometimes even daily. An update, (also called an entry or a post) is usually quite short, perhaps just a few sentences, and readers can often respond to an entry online. People who write blogs are commonly called bloggers. Bloggers, tongue in cheek, call themselves and their blogs the blogosphere.

Creative writing isn’t the fastest route to riches. Whether you’re an art critic or a novelist, you might need to supplement your income along the way. John Nugent asks freelance copywriters and commissioners for advice about selling your words to businesses...

One of my big regrets in my time in the advertising agency world is that I never seemed to have enough time to figure out a good way to talk to the creatives at my former agency about social media. My door was always open, but I was covered up with projects, as were they. So when it came time to look at the social media concepts for our clients, most of the eyes looked my way.

Now and again, at networking events or training courses, I bump into copywriters. My introduction is simple – “I’m a marketing manager for a Fortune 500 company, and I hire copywriters.” I’m always interested in the response. Three out of ten copywriters hand me a business card, two out of ten give me an elevator pitch, and only one out of twenty sets up an appointment with me.

The dictionary meaning of the word "Acting" is pretending, an intended action or deed and the occupation and work of an Actor.

Jean Genet described "Acting" as the discovery of the many selves hidden within an identity of a person. That is how an Actor can be a poor love-lorn youth in one role, and a brash, aggressive, heart breaker in another. Or a woman could be a submissive, simple housewife in one role and a skimming, seductive vamp in another. Be it the role of main protagonists, character actors, comedians, villains, or narrators, it is only the trained and skilled actors who can do justice to the demands of a role.
