A Multitude of Sins

If you’re interested in screen-writing, you could do worse than look in the links section. Drew’s Script-o-Rama has some very good offerings. Study, emulate and fame and fortune will be yours! Maybe…There are many kinds of script. From a scrawled bit of paper that contains three sentences; a rough translation of an interviewee tape to be voiced over in ‘North Country English’ to a two hundred page masterpiece that’s now on its sixth revision (and third screenwriter).

There are many kinds of scripts, but the basics are:

Studio, real-time productions

Feature films, short dramas, etc

Documentaries, features, etc

Story shaping

Not, strictly speaking, scriptwriting, but it’s an important part of creating a film.

Writing dialogue

Talking onto paper. Or keyboard!
