What is the difference between ‘&’ and ‘and’ in movie credits?



When you see an ampersand (&) in movie credits, it means two writers worked together to write the script. If it’s the word “and” it means the two writers worked on the script at different times.

  1. I am a native English speaker and wasnt aware of this usage. The ampersand and the word “and” are traditionally used interchangeably. This specialist use is very interesting.
