Your Review?

  • If you have not reviewed and completed my distance course Film Development 101-E, please click here to return to and complete Film Development 101-E at The Best Film School.

In Film Development 101-E, I covered how to write your movie script with scene actions and scene transitions. As examples, I used Scene 34 through Scene 41 of my film, Royal Love Story From The Grave.

In this free online class Film Development 101-F, you will continue to write your screenplay while using Scene 42 through Scene 49 as your examples for additional ways to write your scene descriptions without dialogue (characters speaking).

  • In Scene 42, the scene action is “Valentina looks into the dark bedroom.”
  • I could have filmed that scene where ever I could find a dark room or closet.
  • Remember…In your film script, you can say your character walks up a mountain.
  • As long as we see some trees and a hill in the background, almost everyone will believe what they are seeing on-screen.

  • The Title Card in Scene 43 reads, “Will Princess Valentina Let Go of the Living?” All of the words are together in the written script.
  • In the film clip, you can see all of the words are separated to make it easier for the audience to read what is on the movie screen.

  • In Scene 49, my scene action reads “Gavino grabs a weapon.”
  • I was not sure what weapon I was going to use so I left it open.
  • Remember…If you are not sure exactly what locations or props you will have access to when it comes time to actually film your movie, try not to be too specific.
