How to get into Script WritingWhere can I get into Script Writing?
This is the first script I have written at Holmesglen TAFE. And I had no clue what writing was until I took the class, and I found it intriguing.
I have always had a liking for movies like most folks, so it wasn't hard for me to be interested in scripts. Script writing is just another type of story telling, a blue print for what we will see on the big game. Which is the most challenging part of writing a script?
Other people will say that it is the discipline itself that is hard because you have to work within the acceptable limits of what is required in movies. You' ve worked as a scriptwriter, author of shorts, producer and interview - what area do you prefer and for what reasons? In order to respond to your questions, it is currently a combination of script and direction, because you get the best of both worlds. What is the best of both worlds? What is the best of both worlds?
Authors are isolated, but I am a socially-minded individual, and I don't really like to spend all my alone at my writing table, so screenwriting in combination with direction fits my disposition and character best. Then it' s writing novels - I like the opportunity that you can do anything, because you don't have the budgetary restrictions of filming.
My preference is for authors who concentrate on the state of humanity and don't use Hollywood obsessions to convey their thoughts - perhaps because of my legacy in France. There are many movies in France and Europe that I see, and they are very much geared to the state of humanity rather than to the entertaining part.
US movies are'entertainment'. Movies in Europe are "culture". You' re narrating a tale, and you must have a tale that grips the audience so they want to know more about the character and what's going to be. Anything else is technology that you can learn over the years. As with every writing style, continue writing.
It would be best to find your own vote and not writing a script that is a copy of something else you have seen. The only way to find your own vocals is to script for script. Another piece of consulting is to realize that there is another outside of Hollywood when it comes to writing screens.
