People may think in sentences but they also think in drama's audio motionpictures. People think in screen thought. 2006-2009, film philosophers Mulhall, Wartenberg, Falzon and Plantinga proposed that movies and documentaries are kinds of screen thought that are "arguments." This inquiry explores eight elements that form a screen argument, namely: time, place, people, action, gesture, utterance, device and notion. Together these elements form an "interaction." The investigation explores how interactions are researched and developed as complex, layered movie arguments. Thirdly, unlike thinking in sentences, movie thought is built four times. Emerging from world history and biography, filmmakers write, perform, record and distribute screen arguments.
