Screenwriting - A Thin Line Between Love and Hate

Coming up with movie idea and writing a script treatment are what I like to call the honeymoon phase of screenwriting. You’re excited with the newness of the story you want to tell. That newness slowly begins to fade as you prepare to dig in to write. If you’re a newcomer to screenwriting it’s like your first marriage. How do I make it through this?

Formatting Your Script

First off your movie script should look like a real movie script. If you can afford screenwriting software get it before you put one word to paper. All the formatting is done for you freeing up your mind to focus on writing a script instead of dealing with formatting issues. I currently use Final Draft 7 and love it. If you’re going to run a marathon you would buy cool running shoes. Same thing with writing a script. Get cool screenwriting software because writing a script is a marathon. Moving on from formatting.

There Is No Right Or Wrong Way To Work On Your Script

I like to work alone without a writing partner. If you’re going solo writing your script, prepare yourself for a lot of late nights inside your own head. No one will be there to brainstorm with or motivate you. If you do not see yourself as the self-motivated type look into finding a writing partner to work with. It’s like a marriage, so make sure it’s the right person or you’ll drive each other crazy. Remember it’s thin line between love and hate when writing.

Some screenwriters like to schedule a block of time each day to work on their script. Some lock themselves in a room weeks on end. There’s no right or wrong way to work on a script in my opinion as long as you are making progress and are happy with what’s being written on the page.

When I get into writing a script I can write 10 hours or more a day losing track of time. I don’t have a set writing schedule. I work hard when I feel the story flowing, pull back when I hit a block, and sometimes don’t touch the script for a few days. Your life situation will often dictate how you work on your script. I know writers that work on their scripts before going to work or after the kids have gone to bed. What you feel works best for you is the path to follow. Creativity can be found anywhere when you’re in the right frame of mind to write.

Hitting The Wall

Marathon runners sometimes experience fatigue where they feel like they can’t go any further. It’s called “hitting the wall.” Sometimes screenwriters experience “hitting the wall” on a mental level. The newness of the script has worn off. You’re feed up with your story, what you’ve written, and tired of looking at this script that never seems to be what you want it to be. Maybe you could have been more prepared before coming? Maybe there is something else you can do as a writer to save your relationship with your script? Or do you walk away?

Hopefully you found this article useful. If you want to read more about one filmmaker’s story making movies please pick up my new book. The First Movie Is The Toughest by Sid Kali is packed with no nonsense advice, help, and entertaining stories about making movies outside of Hollywood on limited budgets. This book is for aspiring Screenwriters, Directors, and Producers along with the casual movie viewer with their own great story idea for a movie. No hype. No bull.

Scariest Horror Movies

Everyone loves a good horror movie. The best ones don’t often rely on great HD special effects, although a great many have excelled in that area. Here’s a list some of the most frightening, hair raising and just plain scary horror movies that have ever been made. Remember that you can catch many of these movies on your satellite TV movies channels.

Arachnophobia: This 1990 movie starring John Goodman features those eight legged creatures so many of us fear. Spiders rule in this movie. They attack humans and wreak general chaos, causing quite a bit of destruction in their wake. This movie will send chills down your spine, because spiders are just plain creepy. Be sure to check your satellite TV guide to watch this movie.

The Innocents: This 1961 movie is based on the Henry James’ novella Turn of the Screw. Ghosts real or imaginary, you decide, make this movie quite the scare-fest. Although there are no big special effects nor high definition shots, this movie is pretty scary.

The Wicker Man: The original Wicker Man and not the Nicholas Cage remake is definitely a lot creepier. It’s filled with atmospheric nuances that keep you wondering. In the movie a British police officer heads out to a remote island which plays home to an odd cultish group of inhabitants. Although this horror movie isn’t packed with once a minute thrills it is well worth the watch.

Rosemary’s Baby: This Roman Polanski movie is seriously creepy. Two people, Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse move into an apartment that has a less than great reputation and then bad things start to happen. This classic is a must see. Again flip through your satellite TV guide to find out when you can catch this gem of a horror film.

The Brood: This 1979 film focuses on a husband who has it in for his wife’s therapist. He wants to get a look at his techniques that he uses on his mental patient wife. There’s a lot of blood and gore in this film a long with a gang of mutant children. This is one of the weirder horror films around.

Eraserhead: David Lynch is known for his odd and surreal works and this one is definitely one of the odder ones from his oeuvre. Eraserhead uses a lot of weird imagery to unsettle you. Eraserhead’s misshapen son will definitely make your hairs stand on end.

Amityville Horror: A young family movies into their first home. The home happens to be haunted. Bad things ensue. A ghost screams at a priest to get out and there are glowing red eyes in the walls. It’s based on a true story too.

Saw: These movie series is known for its gruesome, gory scenes. Limbs get chopped off. Blood splatters every where. Jigsaw, the serial killer behind all of this gore, is more than happy to play games with his poor victims. Watch this in HD to get the most of the visuals.

The Grudge: This Japanese horror movie definitely made a mark. From the ghost boy to the massive amounts of black ghost hair, this horror flick will leave you quaking in your boots. HD is a must.

Star Trek Has Arrived

Star Trek has been popular for decades. It has gained popularity with comic book readers, addicted television watchers, and movie lovers. Star Trek fans can see their favorite characters, such as Captain Kirk, Spock, James, and Uhara, come alive in the new release by Jeffrey Jacobs, “J.J.” Abrams. The Star Trek movie features actors Chris Pine, John Cho, Zachary Quinto, and many other amazing actors. J.J. Abrams is an award winning director who was a great choice for directing this movie. Star Trek fans, also known as Trekkies, would be hard to disappoint because he was in the director’s chair. He has won both Emmy and Golden Globe awards for his work.

The new release is the eleventh Star Trek movie based on the franchise. The science fiction movie is filled with action and adventure. What’s different and unique about this movie is that it previews the history of characters James Tiberius Kirk and Spock. It tells of their journey about how they started their careers on the USS Enterprise. The plot of the movie is an exciting one. The opening scenes of the movie show an attack against the USS Kelvin by a Romulan vessel, Narada. James Kirk’s life begins during the attack because he was born during all the fighting. The movie then continues on 22 years after the attack when James is an adult.

At a bar in Iowa, James meets captain Pike and a love interest, Uhara. After a bar brawl, Captain Pike convinces James to straighten up his life, use his intelligence, and join the Starfleet academy. Upon arrival of the academy, James runs into Uhara and the guys he fought at the bar. However, that didn’t stop him from doing so well in the academy. He also sits next to Dr. Leonard McCoy, who soon becomes one of his good friends. James excels in the academy and beats an unbeatable test; instincts just like his father. Some of the students from the Starfleet Academy were called to join the USS enterprise because there was an attack in space. James wasn’t chosen because he was accused of cheating on a test, but his friend Dr. McCoy sneaks him on the USS Enterprise.

The action and adventure continues with the USS Enterprise fighting off Nero, captain of the Narada. Nero destroyed a Vulcan empire and had plans to destroy Earth. James Kirk is promoted to a first officer and then becomes captain. He and Spock work together to defeat the Narada. The best way to find out if the Narada is defeated is to see the movie and watch the action.
