What is a SCREENPLAY?
When writing a SCREENPLAY, it's all about CHARACTER, PLOT, and THEME - the three cornerstones to telling a great story.
Below is Part One of NOTES you need to think about when writing a script. Whether you're a seasoned script writer or just a beginner, these notes should be insightful for all - and it beats reading those long drawn-out books on the subject.
Make sure you check out our NOTES ON PITCHING YOUR STORY to the industry too!
"A good film script should be able to do completely without dialogue."
FOUR STAGES OF ANY SCREENPLAY
1. THE STORY CONCEPT - A single sentence telling who the hero of the story is and what he/she wants to accomplish
2. THE CHARACTERS - The people who populate the story
3. PLOT STRUCTURE - The events of the story and the relationship of the characters; determines what happens in the story and when it happens
4. THE INDIVIDUAL SCENES - The way the words are laid out on the page - the format, and how one writes action, description and dialogue to increase emotional involvement.
