Film , also called movie , motion picture or moving picture , is a visual art -form used to simulate experiences that communicate ideas, stories, perceptions, feelings, beauty, or atmosphere through the use of moving images. These images are generally accompanied by sound, and more rarely, other sensory stimulations. The moving images of a film are created by photographing actual scenes with a motion-picture camera , by photographing drawings or miniature models using traditional animation techniques, by means of CGI and computer animation , or by a combination of some or all of these techniques, and other visual effects. Traditionally, films were recorded onto celluloid film stock through a photochemical process and then shown through a movie projector onto a large screen. Contemporary films are often fully digital through the entire process of production, distribution, and exhibition, while films recorded in a photochemical form traditionally included an analogous optical soundtrack a graphic recording of the spoken words, music and other sounds that accompany the images which runs along a portion of the film exclusively reserved for it, and is not projected. Films are cultural artifacts created by specific cultures. They reflect those cultures, and, in turn, affect them. Film is considered to be an important art form, a source of popular entertainment, and a powerful medium for educating —or indoctrinating —citizens. The visual basis of film gives it a universal power of communication.

Film-maker turned entrepreneur Zari Raymond wants to rectify this. The key differentiator is that according to Raymond , Script is the only app which is multi-sided, providing a service for both actors and directors on the same platform. In comparison, the incumbent online casting website Backstage launched its first mobile app in but only for actors to search and apply for opportunities. The requirement for actors to submit a long cover letter still standard today on casting websites is wasted effort.
Instead, on Script the experience is essentially the same for both actors and directors: create a profile with important information about your own work and what you are looking for and browse through a curated selection of actor headshots for directors or audition opportunities ordered by date for actors.
