    Default Screenwriting Tips

    Hey all! I've always wanted to write a film but I barely know where to start. I've written some basic scripts that I want to improve on - the main focuses for me without sharing my...mistakes...is that they need to be more professional and 'clever'. Any help would be appreciated!

    I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for here? I always recommend starting with a good premise that will work in a very short screenplay. Start with 5 page projects and work on them until you've got something good.

    If you want to get a handle on screenplay structure, you can check out "Save the Cat" and the recommended beat sheet. Like most screenwriters, I've developed my own approach over the years, but that's a good, simple place to start.

    If you need to improve the dialogue your write, listen to people - the ones you know and the ones you don't. I'm a huge fan of eavesdropping in public places - in gives great insight into how couples, families, and business people talk to each other.
