New writer interested in feedback on this work, please be nice
Script writing has "rules", Just like any business or sport. In script writing the GOLDEN RULE is format. It's our universal language... and if you gonna want to communicate with us, you need to write "speak" our language.
The best way to learn is to read as many scripts as you can - there are hundreds here alone. Also, the web is full of FREE script writing advice from the Pro's. ( I learnt a lot at; http://www.screencraft.com )
Shelve this script. Read 15 SHORT (no matter the genre) scripts and then rewrite this script again and compare the difference. You'll see what I'm talking about. Then, and only then, repost the rewritten script here.
Just off the top:
EXT. FOREST - DAY
FRANCESCA, (30) Blood stained from her wounds. She's been chased by four howling Barbarians.
Not to far off is a lone black KNIGHT. He hears the howling he knows to well to be that of Barbarians. That with the screams of a woman, he's quick to head off in the direction of her screams.
Francesca trips over a log. Laying on the ground holding her leg as she's screaming in pain. The Barbarians now standing over her. - - - - - - - - - - - Hope this helps.
