Write a five-to-10-page script (no more) that centers around a group of friends â€“ three to five characters (no more) â€“ attending a â€œgame nightâ€ get-together. You pick the game. You pick the location(s). Be entertaining!
Through good dialogue, be sure to explain to the audience who these characters are and why theyâ€™re all together. Keep in mind the audience knows nothing about these people and their back-story thus far.
Tell the rest of the story through dialogue and action â€“ and be sure itâ€™s filmable action.
Think about time. Create multiple scene headings (and, if you like, locations).
Be creative. Have something â€“ or many things â€“ happen to the characters.
1. Learn to explain story details through dialogue.
