Is Your Story
Plausible?
One of the task of a screenwriter is to plug holes in
your story during the treatment stage, before you write your screenplay. You really do not want to finish your first draft and then realize that you have gaping
problems. You need to ask yourself could this or that really happen? You don't want your story to wander too far off from reality.

How Much


















Will Your Movie Cost To Make?















You don't want your character's eating breakfast in Hong Kong, lunch in France, and dinner in Hawaii, because by the end of Act 1 you will have spent your budget.Do you have to take your characters to Hollywood to discover what they could just easily find down the block or in their backyard for a fraction of the cost? Not locations but characters make good movies. You can take uninteresting characters to a great location, and you will still end up with uninteresting characters.

Will The Audience WantYour Characters ToSucceed?
Your characters will face big problems that they must overcome. Sure they will fall, make mistakes and have self doubt, but they will also hopefully learn and grow as well.The main thing is that they never give up, even when their situation seems unbeatable. No one likes a quitter so this way the audience will pull for them. 
Will Your Audience Be Able To Identify With
Your Location?

Yesterday's News
Don't write a story about yesterday's news,such as riots or natural disasters.Usually the news media will take all the excitement out of them,but if you do have a unique angle in which to tell your story you might have something that might interest producers and your viewers.

Too Many MainCharacters
Too many main characters does not work well in ensemble movies.In a two hour movie it is hard enough developing one character.If it is your goal to write a good movie,take your four or five vague characters and transform them into two dynamic charactersIt will be far more interesting to follow two believable characters than five bland characters.

LetYourCharacter Expand
Give your character the chance to expand.Your characters will do things you never expected them to do

When thinking about creating your main character you must consider how deeply can your audience relate to your character. 

A way in which to create sympathy for your main character is to make him or her a victim of some undeserved misfortune.

What does your character want? Your character must get into great trouble going after what he wants. Movies are about characters who are in pursuit of something that to them is worth fighting for. 

Your character must act, they will make mistakes and take wrong turns its o.
