The Main Character

People want to give the broader story in a synopsis, rather than a detailed description of everything that happens. A well-written synopsis is important in that it can create interest in the script. Knowing this blueprint will make writing the outline very easy. An outline is the main blueprint for the work. It shows the order of the scenes and the action that happens in each scene. It really creates the basis of the blueprint for screenwriting, which is vital when structuring the script. With the outline completed, it is an easy task to write the script. If people aren't sure how to do an outline, start with writing a Synopsis first as described above. Then begin the outline by starting with the opening scene, then write down one or two sentences that describe the scene. The treatment is an expanded version of the outline and it is written in exciting prose, detailing everything that happens in the script.
