2 Day Film School
Film Development 101-D
Day 2

Welcome to your 2 Day Film School at EducateZap’s Online Film School.

This is Day 2 of the fast and easy way to write your first film at my free online institute.

Yes, you can use two days of motion picture education and succeed.

This part of my movie-making academy online teaches you Day 2 of my part-time course Film Development 101-D.

  • If you have not taken and completed Day 1 of Film Development 101-D, please click here to review and complete the first part of one of the best online classes on the 'Net.

In Day 1 of Film Development 101-D, I covered how to write your movie script. As examples, I used Scene 22 through Scene 29 of my film, Royal Love Story From The Grave.

Day 2

In Day 2 of Film Development 101-D, you will continue to write your film script while using Scene 30 through Scene 33 as your examples for more advanced film development skills.

  • You should spend at least two days total studying both Page 4 and Page 5 in the sample screenplays in this free online class at my 2 Day Film School (Day 1 and Day 2).

Replay and Review Scenes 30 - 33 (Day 2)

  • Click the images. Take a full day to study how character actions and speech are written. Speech is dialogue.
  • This is how you write the actions of “exactly what you wish to see on-screen.”

  • In the sample screenplay, take note of the words (CONT’D).
  • This reminds everyone that scene actions happen in-between character dialogue.
  • The TITLE CARD in Scenes 31 – 33 could have been combined and written together as one scene.
  • The choice is yours to make. Film is art and you are the film artist.
