Screen Writing













Research Based Learning




       My career that
I’m wanting to do is film directing and screenwriting, although writing a story
is hard to do cause telling someone the story line of the film is easier because
its much more descriptive. Screenwriting is one of the hardest, but easiest
jobs to have for a couple of reasons. There are people in this world that have
a writer’s mind and it will come to them easy, but for some they have a
writer’s block, and lots of famous people have it also. When writing a movie or
album it is hard to come up with a story line, but for some they just get away
from reality to find what story they can write in a couple of pages or ideas
they can come up with.

      A lot of people think that making a movie is
easy. When really it is really hard to do cause the first thing you need is the
idea of what your movie going to be about, but you have to be organized in
order for your film to be successful. When you write a movie you need to think
about yourself like is this something I would be interested in because if you
like that story then you should be happy with what you have and then work your
way through out the movie. Someone that had this same struggle is Robert
Rodriquez, if you don’t know who that is he is the man that directed, and
co-write the movie “From Dusk till Dawn”, and “Once Upon a Time in Mexico”. His
ideas were crazy at first to some people, but as time went on he decided to go
with that because it was his productions. But something that is complicated
from writing a script in the movie industry is drawing out the storyboards
exactly the way you want them drawn. A storyboard for making a movie is kind of
useless, but if there is an artist that can draw then I would bring him to the
board so they I can explain him the scenes of what is happening and the
dramatic effect of that scene.

    Someone that
inspired me to become a film maker cause of the creativity that this person had
on movies, and his own creations was James Cameron. I remember when I was ten
years old; it was a Saturday morning on December 18, 2009 in Odessa. My
parent’s and I didn’t know else to do so they asked me “Would you like to go
the movies”, and I was like “Sure”. From their we went to the theater in the
mall and my parents wanted to watch the movie “Avatar” and after we got our
popcorn and drinks we enter the theater to a full crowd of people. The seats
that we wanted were on the top, but they were all full so we had to sit in the
middle row with a lot of people. The first thought that popped into my mind was
that these people are going to be loud and annoying, but when the lights went
down everyone went quiet like if God himself just walked into the room at first
I didn’t know why everyone was so quiet and focused on the movie until the real
cinematic scenes of the movie started. It was then I realized that I wanted to
do movies for a living, at first I asked myself how would your parents feel
about this because this is something your going to be doing until you die.

      Do you need a
degree to make movies? No, you don’t need one to make it, but if you want to be
more professional with it then you would have to get a bachelor’s degree in the
science of film, which means you know cinematography, screenwriting, and
editing I you want the experience.  Experience is an important
component. Film directors usually spent years in the field of acting, writing,
and journalism.



       What is film directing, and what is the difference?
A director is somebody that is in charge of making sure that every scene, and
component of the movie runs smoothly and has a good understanding of the movie
or short-film. Generally, directors work on the movie from the beginning till
the end of the were the movie is in its finalization process to were they have
a test screen. Which they would bring a handful of people to rate or critic the
movie of the quality, story plot, and editing if its animated. Now mostly their
job is to see what props can they use in the movie, and how their used, also
they tell the actors how the character’s dress, and how they should look, and
how they would play specific parts of the movie. Directors also work with the
other producers, make-up artist, and others to sit down with them and write the
storyboards, the scenery of the movie, but most importantly telling the others
were they are going to film the movie. There are three main phases to making a
movie which is pre-production, production and post-production, but the director
doesn’t have to work on the post- production. Now what is the difference between
a film director and a producer? The director controls the storyboards art of
film and the dramatic parts, and visuals of the script while guiding the
actors, and crew in the director’s vision of the film. Now a producer controls,
and supervises the funding, distributes, and hiring people that will help make
the movie. The producer is also in charge of the trailers, and lots that are
rented by the studios, and they make sure that the actors, and crew are
satisfied with what they have in their trailers, and other things if necessary.

     What does a film director do? Film
directors have control over mostly every thing that is apart of the movie, they
also have big roles as the boss of the technical aspects of the movie. They
read over the script to make sure that the story made sense, and they also
decide if the actors are going to play the role of the characters, and if their
going to stay in the movie just in case if they make a sequel. They might
explain the characters’ motivation for a particular action or their back-story.

One of the goals of a director is to push the actors to do their best work. Now
when the post-production starts the editing team will now take the roll to make
sure that the movie has good editing with the special effects, and camera
angles if needed to make sure they catch the scenery of the city or place. Once
the editing team gets to work, the film director has the final say as to how
the shots look and how they should be blended together. The movie director can
also decide that the crew needs to do another take of a particular scene or
scenes. They also decide when one scene should fade into the next.  A film director also has
the responsibility of handling most of the budgetary concerns of a film. He or
she will have to figure out how to make the movie work on the allowable budget.

This might involve hiring actors who will work for lower pay, asking family
members or friends to help out with some of the behind-the-scenes work, or
coming up with less expensive strategies for executing an idea.

What is the workplace of a
film director? There is a lot of
pressure in the environment of a film directing. Film directors have to make
most of the decisions; therefore, if they want their movie to be good, and win
awards they would have to take time with the movie. While film directors are
working on the movie, they also need to be looking forward for their next
movie. Many film directors have more than one job, the entire production
process of a film can take over a year or more if needed. When the movie is in
the production phase, the director is very busy. When the movie is in
post-production and the director just has to oversee things, they may get more
spare time. When on a job, a film director’s schedule can vary considerably.

For example, he or she might work for ten hours on Monday and then an entirely
different set of hours on Tuesday. It is not rare for a film director to work
on weekends, evenings and holidays.
