( continued from Part 2 )

I used my imagination and decided that the antique furniture and interior colors could help me transform my movie ideas into something unexpected. That is how my ghost story became a Royal Love Story From The Grave.

You should have already started writing your screenplay. As you begin to think about the location for your film shoot, do not be afraid to change your film script to fit what you have access to for free.

  • All of this only helps to make your final film project more interesting.

The Scene Heading

  • A scene introduction of INT. tells you that the scene takes place inside (interior).
  • After the word INT., you see the words FOYER, WORK SHED, and BEDROOM. This part of the film script should describe your location in as few words as possible.
  • The final part of the scene heading is your description of the time that everything is happening. Here you see CONTINUOUS and NIGHT.

This is what your film script should look like if written by hand...

  • After the scene heading, there can be scene actions, character(s) speaking, or both.
  • You should describe scene actions in as few words as possible.
  • "Princess Valentina spins around in a circle and smiles." is a scene action.
