Three major updates this week:
- New: Writing Compelling Dialogue
- Expanded: Understanding Film Form
- Expanded: Blocking – Why is it important?
Understanding Film Form is one of those scholarly articles that might not interest some filmmakers or film student, although I think that the conversation on form and patterns is a valid one. It is, I agree, quite basic.
Writing Compelling Dialogue is long overdue. This new lesson is of extreme importance for budding screenwriters. Granted, writing dialogue is not easy, and I know many people suffer with it. But so many times I see young writers struggling with dialogue that has no reason to exist. This is a big waste time. Make sure you read this new article to see what to write. Don’t let me forget, I must also write a guide on Writing Realistic Dialogue.
Blocking – Why is it important? has been expanded with two new subsections titled “Sketch the Scene” and “Attention to Body Language.” Two additions that completely change the feel of that article.
Check them out and let me know what you think. I hope you all had a Merry Christmas. Now we look at the New Year!
