Author is the person who creates any written piece of work. Authors are imaginative and creative. For films, they would write the story or the script. Their writing can belong to any genre like romantic, comedy, drama, horror or mystery. They have great communicational skills and have an ability to get the reader’s attention right from the go. Often they have a message to give with their stories- in such cases the authors need to bring in a lot of clarity in their work and make sure that their story has answered all the probable questions that may be raised by the readers.
With clear characterizations and roles, the authors make smooth transitions in between the incidents that take place in a film. Narrative in their way of working, whatever the authors write may or may not be converted into a film; although there might be cases when prominent authors are hired specifically for writing the script of the movie.
