Read the book by Robert Rodriguez entitled "Rebel without a crew" He made his first movie for 7500.00 dollars. He gives great tips. It's very inspiring. Also check out his first dvd "El Mariache" He shows in the bonus features the tricks he did to make his movie.

It's still a free site and you may appreciate knowing it was written and developed by a Chicano-Mexicano.

First of think of a story that you want to tell and write it out. Write a basic Story and then begin to elaborate and expand on your story. Once you have elaborated, start to add dialogue. What did your charater tell the other character and what emotion was involved. And now you have your screen Play, well a basic one at that. Once you have written your first, you will get the idea of how to make the next one better and so on.

Filming:
once you have your screenplay, you will need to make up a storyboard. Keep your audience in mind and make sure they will be able to follow your movie. Your storyboard, if done right, will tell you what will take the longest to shoot, and what can be done in a day. That way you know how long your shoots will be. And then... well start to shooting.

When you are done, post up your work so we can see what you have created.

the "basic story" is called a treatment

Actually writing down the emotion of the characters is discouraged and for the most part is a big no no.

How the character feels is determined by the story itself. The situations, circumstances a character finds himself in.

Actors hate it when a script describes the emotion they are suppose to feel. A well written screenplay will allow an actor to extract the emotion themselves. There is no need to tell them (via the screenplay) what they should feel. If the emotional circumstance is unclear to an actor, then it is the director's job to get it out of them or help them find it.

Hope that makes sense.



Good advice on the storyboards.

thats true, emotion is best described in a novel when the writer him or herself is to paint out the portrait using the majical words for brush's. On a screenplay the emotion is showed either by punctuations and sometimes quick descriptions such as "angry" "crying" "happy", however, the play itself should carry out the emotion and the actor will find a way to portray it. Usually by the situation of the play or conversation the emotion will flow out easily.

a script is cool to write, but it's up to the director to want to invest in it and make it thier own vision. In other words, you would have to agree on what subject of movie you want to make than, work on it properly. Thanks for the consideration.
