5. You Work With Creative People From All Over the World
In addition to working from home, you can work with people from all over the world. Screenplays can be submitted to companies and studios. And, they are usually sent over email or other secure methods. So, you don’t have to live in one location to be a screenwriter. In addition, screenwriter meetings can happen on Skype or Zoom from any place!
6. You Might Get to Travel the World
This is not a guarantee for all screenwriters. However, if you work on a successful movie that is screened at many film festivals, or is being screened around the world, you could be invited to go to movie premieres abroad.
And, if you make it big enough as a screenwriter, you might get invites to other movies and movie festivals on projects you aren’t working on.
7. Your Work Hours Are More Flexible
As a screenwriter, you choose when to work. If you work on a show or are following a production schedule, you might have less flexibility. You need to meet your deadlines after all. However, you can set up your workday for yourself. You don’t have a boss or a manager telling you what hours of the day you need to work!
8. You Have Fewer Regrets in Life
There is no guarantee that you will become a successful screenwriter or that you will get to work on your dream project. However, being able to write scripts for movies and tv shows is a big accomplishment. As I mentioned before, not many people get to write for a living.
So, at the very least, screenwriters can pursue their dreams, and say that they tried. And this can be a big reward. As many people never take any steps towards their goals. As a screenwriter, though, you will feel less regret because you tried to pursue your dreams!
9. You Inspire People From All Walks of Life
Screenwriters do more than just create fictional characters and worlds for us. In fact, screenwriters have a real-life impact on people all over the world. Scripts for TV shows and movies help create the media we all love.
Making movies or TV shows might not seem life-changing at first glance. But when you think about all the lives movies and TV shows have touched, you can see just how amazing screenwriters are. Movies and TV shows can change the way we view the world around us. In some cases, this media can even challenge us and inspire us to follow our dreams.
10. Screenwriters Comfort People
Finally, screenwriters are amazing because they help us at our lowest points. Screenwriters have the power to comfort us in hard times. So, at the end of the day, screenwriters are important. They make art that can change our lives. They also help us get through difficult parts of life.
