India’s mass media content is changing faster than ever. For a long time Bollywood’s success depended on the presence of the top star, dance sequences and fights scenes. Script as we know was secondary to these.

And after the Corona Lockdown, the demand for better content in all formats not just for web series has increased like never before.

This is the golden era for quality scripts.

Scriptwriting (Screen Writing) is the process of writing down the movement , actions, expression & dialogue of the characters as it would be visually presented on the screen.

He/she should be able to make the internal motivations or struggle of characters visible on the screen.

Take this instance

“He started remembering all his bad experiences in his office”

How are going to present this to the viewers visually? The story & dialogues that you have imagined in your mind, wrote it down, will it look good on screen?

 That’s where the challenge for screen play begins

How to begin your script/screen play?

The first 10 pages are really important for any reader to get interested in your work. Initial  few pages has the power to decide the fate of the entire script, it doesn’t matter if it becomes the most exciting in the later pages with mind blowing climax.

 A Real Beginning

Start your script with an establishing scene that gives the idea where the story is set. Begin with an important but an extremely normal action suitable to the pace of the film

For example

Heroine is finally entering her Campus Girls Hostel as she slowly opens the door to her room something else is waiting for her. Shift the action to surrounding and set the mood for the film.

Gradually introduce the other characters and their purpose in the film

You have to grab the attention BANG from the start

A Normal Day

Further a scene focusing on the normal routine of the main character is important for the audience to understand the character. And to make sense of twists and actions that would be influenced by the main character’s decision.

Show the normal day of the protagonist

For example: Our main character  is a clerk at District Court. He/she takes the metro to work everyday, listens & files the complaint, helps the lawyer, supports his poor family  etc. etc.  as the writer wish.

On this story set –up now bring in the action

On a normal day, this Poor Clerk accidently witness a Judge taking a bribe from the lawyer and here you can kickstart the movie. The reader should be wondering  : Is the movie about corruption? Is it a rags to riches story? Will the poor clerk be a Justice Savior?

If the script creates the required suspense from the very beginning that’s success for the writer

Critical elements of the First Act

  • Can be shorter or longer than 10 pages but should end with a plot changing/inciting incident.
  • This incident should be powerful enough to force the protagonist to take a life-changing decision that in turn will have a great influence on the rest of the story line

 

Use of Archetype/standard characters

Archetype characters are the regular characters like Mother, Father, Best Friend or other usual supporting characters.

A film/web series is as much about the richness or different dimensions that you provide these supporting characters as it is about the story of hero & the climax.

 

By making interesting supporting characters viewers are further engaged into the story line.

For instance you can make the wise old man to be cool, funky, Tech Savvy or average mother to be a fan-fiction comic writer.

You can even mix & match personality traits that are usually associated with stock characters. Thus creating an extremely entertaining set-up for the viewers to enjoy.

Again in the process of making extravagant characters don’t forget to make them relatable & included in the story line. No lets look into some common mistakes that screenwriters should avoid while writing.

Common mistakes

Screenwriting is different than writing a story or a novel that’s why it’s important to be careful of these common mistakes.

  • Unnecessary description

Don’t try too hard. Screenplay should be minimalistic & give out the setting of the movie along with dialogues & expression of characters.

  • Use the proper format

To avoid mistakes on the writing side strictly follow the proper format. Even producers or those who are designated to read them expect you to be extremely careful on the format. Look into this Pintrest link to understand the format. https://in.pinterest.com/pin/470978073529488025/

  • Avoid too much dialogue & length

New writers’ usual mistakes are writing page after page of dialogue. Never do that! There should be balance between physical action & dialogues. It also prevents unnecessary length of the script.

Again action is not only gun fights it simply means the character is doing something
