STORY SCHEMATIC

DIRECTOR:
PLAY:
AUTHOR:
SCENE TITLE:

 

TELL THE STORY of the ENTIRE PLAY/FILM

(SELL this story to the reader.  Remember, the reader knows nothing about the story.  Make it interesting.  You’ll be including given circumstances, character descriptions, and information from your other two schematics, but woven into a GOOD STORY.  When you mention a character, don’t assume we know who they are, you must identify who they are in the context of the story.  Fill this page, at least.  (The reading & telling of this may also help you identify your theme.)  Tell a good story, so that anyone who reads it will want to see this!)

 

 

 TELL THE STORY of the SCENE

(Same as previous one, but now just sell your scene – as if it’s an entire story unto itself. 

In other words, you must RE-INTRODUCE the characters & the given circumstances,

but you are just telling the story of THIS SCENE.   Pitch it.)
