Making the Masterpiece

Go To
"I think we have it."

A dramatized version of how a book, painting, movie, etc. came to be made. Unlike the Biopic, this focuses on the creator's work on a single piece rather than the entire story of their life, though usually one or two other pieces crop up as background.

This trope is not about "making of" documentaries, which are far more common. Subtrope of Set Behind the Scenes. Compare and contrast Amateur Film-Making Plot. See also "How I Wrote This Article" Article, which is writing about not knowing what to write anymore.
