Your Review?

  • If you have not taken and completed my distance course Film Development 101-D, please click here to return, review, and complete Film Development 101-D at my 2 Day Film School.

In Film Development 101-D, I covered how to write your movie script with scene actions and scene transitions. As examples, I used Scene 22 through Scene 33 of my film, Royal Love Story From The Grave.

In this free online class Film Development 101-E, you will continue to write your film script while using Scene 34 through Scene 41 as your examples for more ideas and more ways to write your scene actions without dialogue.

  • Scene 34 could have been written a few different ways and it would still be technically correct.
  • Here is one other way…
  • “Valentina stares at the wall with her mouth wide-open.”

  • In Scene 35, I wrote the scene action as a “framed magazine cover” because that is what I was able to put together for my production.
  • If I did not own a picture frame, I could have easily used a photo album of pictures.
  • My new scene action would have been something like this, “Valentina turns the pages of a photo album.”

  • In Scenes 36 – 38, I used multiple Title Cards for a dramatic effect.
  • That was my artistic choice.
  • Yes, I could have used one title card with “Princess Valentina is Dead”

  • In Scene 39, did you notice the setting of the scene was exactly the same as Scene 34?
  • What was different? Valentina’s scene actions were different.
  • Your camera should capture the changes of scene actions.
  • You can write as much or as little scene action detail as you feel is important.
