Your Review?

  • If you have not taken and completed my course Film Development 101-B, please click here to review and complete Film Development 101-B at my Ghetto Film School.

In Film Development 101-B, I covered how to write your screenplay (film script) a few different ways. As examples, I used Scene 7 through Scene 12 of my film, Royal Love Story From The Grave.

In this free online class Film Development 101-C, you will continue to write your movie script while using Scene 14 through Scene 21 as your examples for more ideas and more ways to write your film script.

  • You should spend at least ten minutes studying each scene in the sample screenplays in this free online class at the 10 Minute Film School.

  • In the movie you are writing for yourself, you most likely will not need a title card. In this sample shooting script, there are 5 different uses for a title card.
  • In my film, I did not actually film my title cards with a camera. I used film editing software. I will explain how to do this in another one of my free part-time courses.

  • Have you noticed that scene actions can be written many different ways? Is there a right or wrong way to write scene actions?
  • Yes, scene actions should be written as if the actions are happening right now…at this moment. Ask yourself, “What do I want to see and hear on-screen?”  Then…you simply write-down the answers to your question.
