“You should do whatever keeps your creative juices flowing. Whatever gets your draft done. Trust yourself, and own your unique creative process.”
If you want comprehensive insights into the indie filmmaking process, then you’ve come to the right place! We’re proud of the depth of teaching you’ll find around our blog for ambitious storytellers here at Lights Film School. 😃
Today, though, I’ve got something a little different for us.
Instead of diving deep into the nitty-gritty, let’s borrow a phrase from our cinematography friends and “zoom out”.
Because I want us to get a bird’s-eye view of the screenwriting process from start to finish, so that new screenwriters can feel confident as they begin to write their movie scripts. This teaching also may serve as a roadmap for screenwriters with more experience. Sometimes when I feel stuck, I find it helpful to “zoom out”… To remind myself that I’ve been down this road before, and am on track!
So, let’s embark on a bit of an adventure, shall we?
