Who wrote what / Quem escreveu o que

I’ve started collating a list of scriptwriters who wrote films/tv series I like. It’s interesting how we associate films with directors rather than writers, so we sometimes don’t know their names.  That’s how films are normally presented: a film by Such Director. There’s a debate going on to prevent that, after all, a film is a result of a collaborative process not the work of one single person. I will not debate this right now.

I just wanted to know the names of the writers behind stories I like or find worth to mention. I’ll keep updating as I find out who they are. You can use IMDB for that too, but I’m adding their blogs/websites as I also identify them. So, enjoy. Suggestions are welcome.

Comecei a organizar uma lista de roteiristas que escreveram filmes e seriados de tv que eu gosto.  É interessante como a gente associa filmes a diretores em vez de escritores e, às vezes, não sabemos o nome deles. É assim que filmes são normalmente apresentados: um filme do Diretor Fulano de Tal.  Está rolando um debate para que isso não aconteça mais, afinal, um filme é resultado de um processo colaborativo e não o trabalho de uma única pessoa. Mas não vou debater isso agora. 

Só queria saber os nomes dos escritores por trás de estórias que eu gosto ou acho que vale mencionar. Vou atualizando conforme for descobrindo. Você pode usar o IMDB para isso também, mas estou acrescentando os blogs e websites deles a medida que eu os identificar. Portanto, aproveite. Sugestões são bem-vindas. 

Here’s the file. It was created in Excel, in order to allow sorting by film or writer but WordPress won’t accept .xls.

Eis o arquivo, que foi criado em Excel de forma a permitir a ordem por filme ou escritor(a), mas o WordPress não aceita xls.
