Reading a screenplay is arguably as much a creative and imaginative process as writing one, and it often seems to me that Australian screenplay writing is frustrated and adversely affected by the impoverishment of its readers. Reading action and light, pace and tone is always a challenge and even more so in a script. When the reader creates emotion in their head, or gets the subtle ambiguity of the subtext, or catches the unspoken, unseen implication of this action with that action as they cross from one scene to the next, they should reserve at least as much praise for themselves as they do for the writer - perhaps more. And the best writers always write in such a way that they allow a good part of the story to be imagined by the audience.
