Creative Team Script Writers

At MovieLux we believe that at the beginning of every successful feature film or scripted television drama series production must come the creative process to create and develop the solid story telling of our films and TV productions. We demand that our creative team creates well-structured story lines. We say that all our scripts should engage an audience by provoking thought and emotions. Whether those emotions are excitement, fear, sadness or joy. They must engage the viewer with the characters on screen and above all entertain the audiences watching them.
