Final Grade

This infographic provides information for aspiring screenwriters, including quotes from successful filmmakers, statistics about why screenplays often get rejected, and general do's-and-don'ts. This is a lengthy infographic, comprised of 9 main headings. The final main heading, "Complete List of Film Sub-Genres" section, has 11 sub-sections which are comprised almost entirely of bulleted text. Some of these sub-sections have 40+ individual bulleted points, veering more into the genre of a reference material rather than an infographic. The text does contain relevant information for those interested in screenwriting, but errors in grammar and punctuation diminish this infographic's authority as a source of advice for aspiring writers. The design adheres to a consistent, sophisticated color palette of dark grey and subtle pops of peach and gold, and icons are well-designed, but so small that they're often difficult to identify. By trimming the heavy blocks of text, adding more illustrations, and scaling up the existing icons, this infographic could visually engage readers and inspire them to keep reading. Overall, we'd give this an F.
