Learning Lots! #screenwriting #scriptchat #amwriting
I've made it to the end of my first semester of the Advanced Diploma in Screenwriting: Feature Film at AFTRS and there's one important lesson that's sticking in my brain:
it's all about emotion.
Fill your scripts with something that's deeply personal to you. Fill it with your lessons, your traumas, your heartaches and all those things that you'd never actually talk about.
With that you'll fill your script with an emotional authenticity that will leap off the page.
