Day in the life of a Screenwriter – Let’s Make An Action Movie: “Join me as I finish my first draft of Charlie 4 and break down my writing habits.”
What does a Screenwriter do?
A Screenwriter is a writer who writes screenplays for films, TV, video games, commercials, and stage plays. They are responsible for developing plot lines, characters, and scene by scene outlines of the stories they write.
How much do Screenwriters make?
Before we tell you the average salary for a screenwriter, we just want to show you how much you could really earn if you are passionate and very good at your job. $2 million. That’s how much Shane Black got for his script for The Last Boy Scout. But that’s only half of what Joe Eszterhas got for selling Basic Instinct for $4 million.
Industrial Scripts have created a very simple list for prices of a screenwriter for different budget films:
- If the budget of the film is more than £2m, the screenwriter can expect to receive a minimum fee of approx £42,120.
- If the budget of the film is between £750k and £2m, the screenwriter can expect to receive a minimum fee of approx £25,650.
- If the budget of the film is under £750k, the screenwriter can expect to receive a minimum fee of approx £18,900.
It’s very hard to come up with a salary for a screenwriter as it can be very different based on the budget of a film.
