Let’s assume you’re a scriptwriter, and as one you come up with tons of ideas, smelt them to paper while they are still hot (or use a pencil). The next time you pull out these ideas most of them will not filtrate through your extremely critical Self. But those that do could eventually become the start of an inspiring script (or maybe just last a few iterations). My intention to write the article is not to critique any particular style or, even worse, tell you how you should write a script. Sometimes it is better to stop writing for a moment and read someone else for a while and maybe you will find small treasures between the lines.
1) Why do their storytelling techniques matter?
2) What exactly do they do to make these stories so work?
3) How can you adapt a BIG scriptwriter’s method to improve your own writing?
I decided to share with you some new and old classic films that speak for themselves and do not need a long presentation. I borrowed them from www.imsdb.com the largest script resource for American movies. I hope you will enjoy reading and analyzing them.
