Where do I start when making a movie?

Screenwriting Your script serves as the template for your film. Just as a blueprint guides builders as they construct a house, so your screenplay will guide the filmmakers as they shoot your story. The first step in writing a successful screen play is to understand that it is actually three separate stories told in sequence.

Each scene should be written as if it were one sentence which would then be joined together to form a complete thought. For example: "Jack rushes into the kitchen and slams the door behind him." This simple scene could be broken down into its individual sentences: "Jack slams the door." "Jack rushes into the kitchen." And finally "the kettle whistles loudly." These three sentences don't make sense by themselves but when put together describe a whole scene of action. Sometimes writers get confused about scenes that take place over several pages because they forget that a page from a book is just like one scene in a movie. A single page can't tell us much about the story or the characters without further explanation. It's up to you to add more information about what's happening by using different types of scenes (action, confrontation, etc.).

What is the purpose of writing a script?

The script serves as a template for what will be on screen for the producers, director, actors, and crew. It is the common ground on which everyone involved in the film will collaborate from start to finish. It explains the whole plot and includes all of the action in the film as well as all of the speech for each character. Also, it provides information about time periods, places, and things like that.

Writing a script allows the writer to organize their thoughts about the story before they begin writing it down. They can also use the script to find ideas for scenes or characters if need be. Writing a script is not easy because you want everything in the script to make sense and not leave any questions up in the air but at the same time you do not want it to be too detailed either because then it would just be reading material. A good script should be able to hold your interest throughout even though you know how the story ends.

There are many different ways to write a script. You can write a script by hand using note cards or paper, type out a script on a computer using word processing software, or even use a typewriter. No matter what method you choose there will be advantages and disadvantages to each one. For example, writing a script by hand will allow you to more fully understand what is going on in the scene without worrying about missing words or phrases.
