Directors must be storytellers…

September 30, 2020
I could surely to tell that whole the directors must be storytellers…, like any screenwriter. And any storyteller understands that you will improve yourself by practicing.

Muscles are not completely developed, healthy and stocky at the beginning. You need to exercise to build muscle. You must train yourself.

The same thing is said for writing. You will gradually improve with time writing more. And as you write, you need to explore different ways to develop your storytelling skills. You want to push the limits out of what you can do. You want to try your best to impact more on the audience.

That’s the way we train muscles. And that is how you become a writer.

Research is a process

To the screenwriter, the common thought or question is, “Should I watch videos and read script books to learn how to write a screenplay?”

As a screenwriter, even if you are a skilled, you must always research through the process. You always need to nurture your brain with different perspectives. There is no right or wrong answer in the process of leveraging information.

The only correct answer is from the way you use what you have learned. You take what you like and leave the rest – as it will be used for your article.

But you need to learn those lessons. You need to consider everything. That’s the way you grow up. That’s how your own process is formed.

Take advantage of reactions

Reaction shots are often used during editing. They show the different emotions of the characters when they react to the information they receive.

Writing a script is about showing it, not telling it. Now, you can definitely tell a conversation. But expressing emotions in response to shared information is where you really capture the featured scenes.

Too many screenwriters focus on expressing in the language and how that information is shared. They will have a scene description to focus on who is providing the information, as opposed to the person they are telling the information to.

Focus on the reactions in your article. It is not directing the camera and telling the reader that they need to clearly visualize the character image. That is using the scene description to describe how the information affects them in a subtle and emotional way. Are they crying? Are they angry? Are they confused? Did they attack informants? Or do they accept them?

Demonstrating reaction is a great way to show the characteristics and depth of a scene.

The secrets of this montage will help you with the work of script writing. When the editing of images and films is a picture-mediating bridge, the same lesson can be applied to those who evoke that image and edit them with the mind. All are connected to each other.
