The Argonauts and writer/directors
Marshall, Grant (2006) The Argonauts and writer/directors. Masters by Research by Creative Works, Queensland University of Technology.
The Argonauts is a one hundred and ten minute screenplay depicted in the genre of
children's adventure film, set in the suburbs of Brisbane in the early 1990s. It tells the
story of four friends who embark on adventure in an attempt to save their parents' shops
from a corporate takeover. The exegesis explores the dual role of the screenwriter/director
and the affect on the screenplay of the shifts in mindset required when these roles are
undertaken by the same person. Screenwriting and directing are explored as two separate
but interlinked disciplines. In this paper I have draw on my experience in these two roles
to discuss their inter-relationship. In order to understand how the two roles of
screenwriting and directing interact, challenge and compliment one another when carried
out by the same person, I analyse the interplay of these roles within the specific areas of
character, narrative and setting in the writing and revision of the screenplay, The
