"The role of a screenwriter in movie production: my personal experience"

Dennis Hall is an English Literature Writer, Researcher, and Screenwriter who started his career in early the ‘00s after graduating from the UK university. His passion for literature and writing that got a hold on him during his school years, transformed into his job after the Ph.D. degree. Hall completed his research paper on the Hemingway heritage, worked in a few colleges as an instructor, and published his literary articles in the related magazines.

Later, he became a freelance writer for the college essay service: this job allowed him to share his knowledge with younger generations of future writers, inspire them to write their texts, and develop their writing and reasoning skills. After finishing his career as a freelancer, Dennis Hall became a screenwriter. Now, he completed a few movie scripts and is ready to share his knowledge with the London Film And Media Conference audience.
