Why ChatGPT Falls Short for Long-Form Scriptwriting


In the age of AI and machine learning, tools like ChatGPT have emerged as frontrunners in the realm of natural language processing. While they excel in many areas, such as answering questions, generating short texts, and assisting with quick tasks, when it comes to the intricate art of long-form scriptwriting, they fall short. Let’s delve into the reasons why ChatGPT isn’t the ideal tool for crafting a screenplay.

1. The Issue of Hallucinations

One of the primary challenges with ChatGPT is its tendency to “hallucinate” or produce outputs that, while grammatically correct, might not make logical or factual sense. In the context of scriptwriting, where continuity, character development, and plot coherence are paramount, such hallucinations can lead to disjointed narratives, characters acting out of their established personalities, or plot points that don’t align with the story’s logic.

2. The Need for Extensive Prompt Engineering

To extract high-quality outputs from ChatGPT, a significant amount of prompt engineering is required. This means that users often need to craft their prompts meticulously, sometimes iterating multiple times to get the desired response. For scriptwriting, which requires fluidity and spontaneity, this iterative process can be cumbersome and counterproductive. Instead of aiding the creative process, it becomes a task of constant calibration.

3. Limitations in Producing Longer Screenplays

While ChatGPT is adept at generating short texts, it struggles with longer, cohesive narratives like screenplays. A screenplay isn’t just a collection of dialogues; it’s a meticulously woven narrative with character arcs, plot developments, and thematic elements. ChatGPT, in its current form, lacks the capability to maintain consistency over extended narratives, leading to scripts that might feel fragmented or lack depth.

4. Lack of Self-Critique

One of the hallmarks of a good writer, or in this case, a scriptwriter, is the ability to critique and refine their work. ChatGPT, despite its advanced algorithms, lacks this introspective capability. It doesn’t have the ability to review its outputs, identify areas of improvement, or refine the narrative for better quality. This lack of self-awareness means that while it can generate content, the onus of quality assurance falls entirely on the user.


While AI tools like ChatGPT are undoubtedly groundbreaking and offer immense potential in various domains, long-form scriptwriting isn’t their forte. The nuances, intricacies, and depth required for a compelling screenplay demand more than what these tools currently offer. For now, human creativity, with its complexities, emotions, and insights, remains irreplaceable in the world of scriptwriting. As AI continues to evolve, there’s hope for more refined tools in the future, but until then, the pen (or keyboard) remains mightier.
