Maybe you have the rights to a book, an article or someone’s life story that you want to turn into a screenplay. Or maybe you just have an idea that you think would make a great movie. Whatever your starting place, the key to ending up with a great script is planning.

Before a screenwriter commits to typing page one of a script, they need to drill down and discover the most important thing of all:

what is the beating heart of their story?

In other words, what will make an audience care about the characters and the journey they go on.

Once identified, the screenwriter can then start planning the structure of their screenplay:

character outlines

plot outlines

script treatments

Whatever the combination of tools the screenwriter uses, the ultimate goal is to have a well-thought-out first draft so that the project doesn’t get bogged down in endless rewrites.

Phil’s method ensures your first draft reads like a fourth or fifth draft.
