Write the story you were meant to write.Let's get started!
Cinematic, dramatic, simple plot, complex characters, suspenseful!This is the property and architectural home built before you start decorating. Feel wonderful about this as it is your story.
Title, genre, and the pitch.Built in conflict is what drives story.Your logline is your first communication to the world and to yourself about your clear, concise, cinematic story that is a… movie.
Like a parent naming a child, so shall you name your movie.Both are crucial to the life of the journey.This is the shop sign inviting all to enter.Feel great about your title or come up with a new one.
Creating characters and images to bring your movie to life!
Movies are often given the green light and money because of story and movie stars.Your lead, your protagonist, needs a strong clear character that is both multidimensional and flawed.This will attract that star.Your protagonist is the key to a great story.Love your protagonist and the audience will too.
That character in opposition to your protagonist is the antagonist.The antagonist should be stronger than your protagonist as to add a layer of anxiety, urgency, and intensity to your story.Also known as a “heavy,” this good vs. evil dynamic will drive the conflict organically.Give us a great heavy and you have a great movie.
Opening Images
Tone, vibration, feeling, texture, and energy are established immediately with your opening images.This will certainly ground your audience in the world and the journey they are about to venture on.Close your eyes and breathe.What images do you see and feel for your movie?
Screenplay story structure is the blueprint on which we paint with words!
Inciting Incident
Going from the ordinary world to the extraordinary world is the moment in your movie that alerts the audience to a special world soon to come.This is very important as it is the calm pond getting a rock thrown in and your inciting incident is the ripples.

This is the point in your movie vital to your movie.Without this moment your movie does not exist.This is the moment that changes the entire trajectory of life as this movie has known thus far.
  • A spirited willingness to learn this wonderful craft to tell the story you were meant to tell. A laptop or pad-pen is just fine.
