No matter the end format, Noam J. Dromi, Co-President of Legion of Creatives, believes that all writing should start with an outline. Where books, graphic novels and screenplays differ is in the writing execution. Film is a visual medium where exposition is not the main focus. Conversely, telling the background story and providing many of the details is necessary for a book. Graphic novels tend to be a marriage of film and book. They are an evolving medium that allows for intriguing storytelling with a unique, visual dimension that makes them easy pickings for producers to option for film.
