Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Vivamus quis arcu est. Quisque posuere est arcu, id hendrerit orci pulvinar id. Cras egestas metus sit amet felis accumsan, vitae placerat libero sodales. Morbi efficitur maximus massa et aliquam. Quisque vel viverra augue.

Nullam scelerisque erat nisl, eu aliquet quam porttitor et. Aliquam molestie sem augue, non egestas nunc sagittis in. Suspendisse vehicula turpis eget leo sollicitudin, dapibus commodo massa facilisis.

Here are the mistakes to avoid –

1) Passive lead character
Many times, the lead character just agrees to someone else’s suggestion without any argument or thought. This makes for a boring character. If the action doesn’t come from within the character then nothing is pulling the story.

2) No conflict or lower case conflict
Conflict creates drama and drama interests people. If there is no real conflict or deep conflict the drama dissolves soon and the people lose interest.

3) People play safe
They follow the formula to write a script. All the screenplay elements happen exactly at the specified time. The inciting incident, the midpoint, the third act etc. This appears very dull because there is no spark of madness in the script. Nothing unpredictable.

4) Know when to stop defending a pitch
When you’re sitting in a writing room and you pitch your idea to the executive producer if he asks you to drop the idea and move on you should move on. It is the executive producer’s job to know what can go on the show and what not. Hence, if he says no prepare to move on.

5) Take constructive criticism
Go to writer groups or meetups and read your scripts and get feedback from them. Sometimes, if you’re not happy with the note, then figure what actually caused the note. But learn to take criticism.

6) Don’t hold back
This is an industry where there are no real rules. There is no particular way to do things or particular things you can’t say. Bring your craziness out. Let it pour out from you.

Before you make a film from your script you need to learn about different ways to compose your frame to make it aesthetically pleasing.
