Developing an Idea for a Movie
Every successful movie needs a strong story and compelling characters to drive its message home. Developing a story can be one of the most difficult steps in the movie making process, but there are some simple ways to developing an idea for a movie. A story is usually the only item that any directors really require.
The spoken language in films is usually very limited, this is often used to restrict the number of words used in dialogue. The advantage of having minimal spoken language is that it creates an illusion of realism. When creating a screenplay, it is important to think about how the character will speak, because this will give an idea on how much and how quickly the information should be conveyed. The language is often based off of common everyday speech, so if your character is using slang or funny quotes consider the frequency of these phrases and how they should be used. Most film scenes will have long passages of dialogue, which can take a long time to hear over.
Two words are the most common types of vocabulary used in the film, these include the title, and the character’s name, or more technically the character’s title, while they are often used to refer to the character, sometimes these two words are used to describe the action in the motion picture. These two terms are often used to identify the main character in a film. Most films contain at least one long shot, the shot that runs across the screen from beginning to end. These long shots are called the action sequences. Often the action sequences in movies are accompanied by some music and sound effects.
