The article offers views on the pitfalls associated with a screenwriter who took formal education in screenwriting. He infers that for Hollywood executives, the mere fact that the screenwriter went to a school film, would make them reluctant to know who wrote it to get away with the expenses that goes with their acquisition of the writer's contribution. He added that movie executives use a writer's talent as an excuse that he need not go to a film school, thereby making it easy for them to push a deal that is not financially taxing on their part.
