The Screenwriter


The book by Bill Froug was first published in the 1970s in response to aututeur theory. To many indie filmmakers they were never writers, so the whole scripting process becomes a learning curve (even more than usual).

Scriptwriter' s vision

A few years ago I found a basic technology that made me a better author, producers and theater. I' ve come across this technology by chance because of an uncommon disease. But the good thing for you is that you don't have to get ill to use this technology. I' ve seen a hundred and a hundred scripts, and almost all of them could have been enhanced if the author had used this technology.

On the other hand, the trouble is that no amount how impressing your concept or how good your typing is, you need a powerful grasp of the film making processes themselves in order to create a bright script. You need a bright storyline, astonishing figures and real dramatic. However, if the author really wants to set himself apart from the masses, I have to understand how these stories and scenarios actually end up on the canvas.

When the author knows how a movie-maker works and how a tale is transferred to the TV set, he has a very good opportunity to get my interest. The first time I thought about becoming a screenwriter (long before I thought about making movies), I said: "I am a really visible man, so I think I was made to make pictures.

" A seasoned screenwriter turned to me and said: "Screenplays are about the movie soundtrack, not what it looks like. It' your work to tell the tale. "What he said was in many ways real, but I wish I hadn't taken it too seriously, because if you know how a director works and keep in mind what kind of visually aids they use, you can become a better author.

One thing my screenwriter boyfriend didn't say is that it's your task to inspiration everyone who will read your scriptwriter - the producers, the cast and the stage-man. The more you know about how stage managers work, the better your chances of writing a good readable story. Many scripts will feature two people speaking about a desk when it would be much better to let them go while they talk.

On the other hand, there are many scripts that try to put a lot of motion into a sequence when all you really need is to see the figures sit and talk. What does it make a big deal how every sequence works? Well, I don't know if the author or the producer made those choices, but I know that a good author should have an appreciation of how screencrafts work in order to scrip.

If you have your scriptwriting on a producer's desktop, you want to enjoy reading it, but it should also make the viewer think they're seeing a film. Do not insert directional images into your clip. When you begin a sequence by saying, "The lens is high up and tilting down as we cross the road," you'll all be hating.

It is your task to make the plot so visual that the film' s creator wants to put up a cart and a trolley to produce your film. And the best you can hopefully do is just lay in front of the TV and see some old films. But I still wanted to see films.

Finally I switched off the tone with the radio control because the stillness was better than the muted fugue I was going through. Because there was no audio to divert me, it was much simpler to see how the movie was made up. And I began to see the technique the filmmaker used.

Usually when you are photographed in a movie, you don't realize the selection of the objective, the moving picture, or how the scenery is block. One is simply drawn into history and watches the unfolding of things. If you can't listen to what's going on and don't have captions, you can only see the movements of the camerawork.

Suddenly you see exactly which of the film's manoeuvres, technique and movements the stage-man has used. I kept seeing films with a softer tone even when my ears came back. When I want to best stage a chasing sequence, a fighting sequence or a romantic sequence, I find a fitting sequence and look at it without soundtrack.

When I look up with the tone, I can never see what the producer is doing, because I am always drawn into the history, the emotion, the moment. I can disassemble the technology and see how everything works. There are 100 progressive camera techniques to take an expensive look at your low-budget film.

I' ve written a script showing the crude technologies filmmakers use to produce an effect. It would have been impossible to solve all this by looking at films with the level control turned up. So you can either watch films with a quieter tone, or you can view my work. Knowing the technique a filmmaker uses to produce certain special effect makes typing much simpler.

It gives you a better understanding of the speed and how little dialog is needed to make a good one. If you know more about a director's visions, your script will be more compelling. There is another technology that can make you an even better author. It was by turning the first technology upside down that I discover.

The movie business is a place where folks are starving for stories. Irrespective of how many blasts, battles or drama kissing you put into your script, folks want a good one. If you write an alternate script (which violates the normal rules), still they want a taste for history. If you write an atmospheric play or something down-to-earth, the public will hope for a slother of history.

So what is the best way to go into history? Lots of folks will tell you to screenwrite, and it's good advise. There' s no better way to grasp the progression and evolution of history than by hearing. However, the easy act of turning off the TV and hearing rather than seeing it gives an unparalleled glimpse of the film.

If you come to compose your next scriptwriting, think about inspiring the film' s maker. It gives you more ingenuity, assists the producer, and best of all, it gives you a better opportunity to sell your story.
