When turning a story into a script, the writer should start by breaking down the narrative into individual scenes. Each scene should have its own objective and follow a logical progression that leads to the overall resolution of the story. To ensure that each scene is well constructed, it’s important to consider how each scene will be shot or staged, taking into account both internal and external elements such as dialogue, props, costumes, lighting and sound.
In addition to the technical aspects of scriptwriting, writers must also consider how their story will be translated onto the page. This includes formatting each scene with proper headers and descriptions of characters’ actions, emotions and dialogue. It’s essential to create a clear and unified style throughout the script that will be easy for readers to understand.
Overall, a well-written script is one that communicates both visually and narratively, allowing the reader to clearly understand what’s happening on the page. By taking time to craft an engaging story with strong technical aspects, writers can create a captivating script that can be translated into pictures and motion.
