to see a movie, See movies, and read scenarios

voir un film, Voir des films  et lire des scénarios

see a movie, see movies, and Learn the cinema

necessarily passes by see movies, and read scenarios

to see a film and Learn the cinema…we start small as We are all influenced by the movies we’ve seen. Our scenarios, the universe that we portray in our works have been fed by the movies which have thrilled us, freaking out, laughing…

Each time, the magic of the movie, you won.

You are going to write a scenario, a story to which you think for a long time (or not.)

But to see a movie, it is also knowing how to assimilate a method to put at the service of your imagination.

  1. Structure your ideas
  2. Create places
  3. Characters
  4. Conflict
  5. Of resolutions
  6. Invent plans

Take your favorite movies and watch like you have never done it. Take a step back, to analyse, to dissect, to find the way in which they are constructed. Because the best way tolearn film is to take a step back.

Eat of the biggest. Here is a list of movies, inescapable, all genres, in which you will surely find the solutions that you are looking for.

ATTENTION : I’m not talking about plagiarism. Copy and paste of scenes known and use them in your scenario is not useless.

To see a film and understand what works, can you help to unlock a situation or sequence that you gene. In addition, each of these films is a mine of information on how to make a film. Understand the language of cinema (as we will see later in detail) as well as the springs story are paramount.

This is only a short list that mixes masterpieces and popular successes. Don’t be elitist : popular successes are not synonymous with bad movie !! Just like popular series are not synonymous with bad series. I think of series such as : the little murders of Agatha Christie. The series brings together 5 million people in average. It is a French production, the scenarios are very well suited, the backgrounds are great. We may not like the genre, but you can’t say, because it is French and it works, that it is the shit. To see a movie…a bad movie can also be a good lesson ;o) it is not necessary to do.

I’d like to finish by saying that look, analyze, dissect movies will help you in your writing.

This work would not be complete without comparing it with the original scenario. It is important that you read the scenarios. You will learn much more quickly. A category that I always like to watch in order to learn what not to do. Making a film is also that, learn the film passes through the z series or Z series (I told you earlier ;o) to understand what it must not do :o)

The mechanisms you will appear more clear and you will save time. Sometimes, you will see that between the scenario (ready to shoot) and the film, there are a few differences, namely in the dialogues, either in the decoration, or even that some of the sequences have disappeared. You can find tons of scenarios of movies and series on : The daily script, imsdb, the internet movie script database, horror lair, sci fi script.com, planet megamall.

It is important to be aware of. Your story/ scenario will be ever-changing and up until the mount!!!

ATTENTION : most of the scenarios that you find will be in English and if you don’t speak the language of Shakespeare, try the google translate ;o)

Here is for this article to see a movie to know how to make a movie , you will find other articles more specific on how to write, how to realizer, how to prepare. In short, here you will learn the cinema and all of its secrets at your own pace and free of charge ;o)

I always try to be as clear as possible in my explanations but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to leave me a little message.
