The Seven Deadly Sins of Filmmaking

Filmmaking Deadly Sin Number 6 – Put Conflict In Every Scene

It’s time again for William Akers (Your Screenplay Sucks!) and Kelley Baker (The Angry Filmmaker) to get together and discuss Deadly Sin # 6– Conflict in Every Scene.

As a writer you need to try and find a way to have conflict in every scene.  You need conflict to move the story forward.  Enough with the giving us, “Character Background Scenes”.  We don’t care!  Work bits and pieces of the character’s backgrounds in to different scenes.  Don’t lay it all out for us at one.  Get your story moving!  Otherwise we’ll never read past page 6 …  (if that.)
