A film director from India who Planning his third film now.
I have always been a fan of Groundhog Day but I never saw the film in such philosophic manner as it was shown in the video.
No doubt the channel "Lessons from the Screenplay" deserves the 1 million subscribers that it has.
The most important thing I learned was the element of change which was depicted beautifully in the film and also how to us today.
We literally live the same life again and again and we are unaware of it.
We all live a part of "Groundhog Day" in our lives without doing what it takes to make life worthy and enjoyable.
Great article and great video.
I am so sorry but I didn't find this article very interesting.
First, it was lengthy and second, it was way too much information.
However, I loved the effort you put in there in explaining the situations for external vs outer conflicts. Kudos to that.
Super helpful article.
This is a must-read for every screenplay enthusiasts as it covers every important technical point needed to write a great screenplay.
Concise but very well needed article.
Yes, I have also faced problems with Contd. in Final draft because often times it gives an impression that the character has started from where he ended when he clearly hasn't.
Frankly, I didn't know there was a way to turn it off in Final Draft.
Will definitely try it next time.
Godfather is not just a great film, it is a lesson in great filmmaking.
The screenplay establishes everything in the first fifteen minutes and we are inside the world of Corleone's. Every single small scene mattered in the film.
I saw one video on youtube where Francis Ford Coppola tells that he had ripped every page of the book Godfather and had pasted it on a big book and would make copious amounts of notes there.
He said if he had that in his hand, not screenplay, he would still have finished the film.
I love how characters transform in the film, especially of Micheal. Actually, the film was about Micheal only and how a man who wants to run away from his family business is forced by circumstances to become a part of it.
I also loved how the climax was written. It was unlike anything I had ever seen. With intercuts of Micheal's on getting baptized on one side and his enemies getting killed by his people on the other side.
There was life coming to this world on one side and there were lives ending on the other side.
Thanks for the Screenplay. Though I have read the book and also read the screenplay years back, it will still be interesting to read it again.
Chekhov was a master when it came to writing fiction.
There was a great resource of other articles but I think I needed a more elaborate description of the six points and how can I incorporate them in my writing.
I guess I will go through the links to more about it but the article helped in understanding a few writing rules in really less time.
