Screenplay is a plan for the execution (movie, drama, play, VO,). cinematography is capturing a movie with a frame beauty.(lot ot say)

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."
-David Mamet



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.

(It may useful to you)

Default My Take

online reference resources will help you a lot...namely
1. wikipedia (obviously)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinematography
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screenplay
2. forums such as ours:
I think there's a section on this too...
In a nutshell, if a script is the recipe then cinematography is the way it looks and we all know that the twain are WORLDS apart.
But to get to the point let's look at this shot from parineeta which won the filmfare for best cinematography (If my memory serves me correctly) .
The script probably says:
(Shot of family having Puchka from the Puchkawala outside Victoria Memorial) and then switches to dialogue.
The nuances considered by cinematography are:
How to make it a lovely believable sequence keeping in mind the context

In one word "Screenplay" could be.....
Entire Film on text format...

In screenplay have to mention Set, Scene, Lighting, Mood, Environment, Characters, Story, Dislodges, Camera angle and motion etc...

Director, Actor, Set Designer, Cinematographer, Lighting Designer or and each n every one will refer and follow screenplay..

Let me describe with an example.

Story:

A man running on a street wildly and he crashes into a parked truck and faints.

Screenplay:

FADE IN
EXT, A STREET FULL OF PARKED VEHICLES ON THE SIDE, DAY

Long shot
Gabriel is running wildly through the street.

Gabriel's POV

He is rushing wildly keeps on looking back to check if someone is chasing him.

Once when he turns back around, he finds himself right on the back of a parked truck
Gabriel
(Shocked)
OH MY GOD!
Gabriel bangs on the truck.
FADE OUT



I hope you got the point!

The format is not standard here, I didn't format the post so.... but this how it should be.

A story can be 4 lines of paragraphs but the screenplay is detailing the entire story for screen adeptation.
