I want to Write a Movie ScriptI' d like to write a script
Before I write a script, what do I need to know?
Scripts are not just a storyline, so there are many things you need to know. First, it is an excessively lengthy and time-consuming work. When you write for your own perspectives - will it be a good window for your talent and open to you?
And, above all, you will be able to support yourself and your loved ones while you write. Second, considering there are no money problems for you, do you have anything important to say through your movie? So why would they go through your movie? No, no..... just being able to write good fiction, good poems, good essays, items or composition will NOT be enough.
There' is a framework for success storytelling. You' re gonna have to study the structures, even if you want to crack them. First thing you need to know is Syd Field's council that a script is a "story with pictures". Everybody gets appended to the dialog the first script is written, but dialog is the very last thing to think about and the very last thing to append to a script.
They should also read Robert McKee's story, David Mamet's thoughts on the subject of play, especially Three Uses of the Knife, and the Grandmaster of Poetics (Aristotle). Next thing you need to know, the script is just "Stage One" in the movie production lifecycle.
The only way to really get to write is to write the script and then watch the movie. And if you are fortunate enough to be asked, you may even be able to be in the editing room as your script is stretched and reshaped to function like a movie.
You' re really learning what works and what doesn't in a script. Only when you sit in an editing room and see how a particular shot and/or video clip is created and enhanced do you really realize how the storyline really works and how little dialog is needed in a movie.
They should also be reading script. Many and many screenplays. cripts of masterworks and script productions that were not made. Find out why the masterworks are masterworks and why the unfinished writings were not made. Next thing you know, your first 10 scripting sessions will probably be horrible.
They also need to know that you need to get your script back. They can' t write in a void of air and you have to listen to other peoples tell you how your work affects them. Perhaps I'll join a group of authors. It is much less expensive and simpler and you can get 80 per cent of what you need to know by making short pants.
Do you know that you'll write it more than once if it's too good. Do you know that this is a film-maker plus dialog; it is NOT a long description ofprosa. Look at the first phrase, you'll re-write a heap after you've written it for the first one.
