Production files illustrate the integral role writers' play in the production process, and individual movie frames allow you compare these to the real scripts.

Armed with the skills developed in this book, a media writer can apply for a variety of positions in newsrooms, advertising firms, motion pictures or animation studios, as well as local and national cable operations.
