SECRETS OF A "PERFECT" SPEC SCRIPT

 

    Anyone can tell you that your script is wonderful, but how many can tell you what     could be improved to make it marketable? Your screenplay may be a great read, have perfect formatting, no typos  but may still not be the blueprint from which a movie can be made.

    

     Filmability is the key. Many first time screenwriters have no idea what can be put on the screen and how much it will COST.

    

     For a first time sale, you should focus on your story above all else. Keep it simple, but meaningful. Forget the special FX. You can imagine that a pratfall will require a stunt double, but did you know that a simple tripping does as well? Anything that might injure a highly paid actor thus shutting down production, requires that someone else must take that risk. Okay, unless you've got Tom Cruise, who insists on doing his own stunts!

    

      Cost is especially important if you're trying to break in. You will have greater success if you target smaller independent filmmakers, who have small budgets.

    

      Use as few characters as possible. Did you know that every speaking part is likely to cost over $100,000?  Combine characters.

    

      Use as few locations as possible.  Every new setup requires time, which means money. Eliminate the "establishing" shot wherever you can. Eliminate unnecessary scenes. 

    

      Save the costumer for later, when you have a track record. I know it's tempting to write a script with flashbacks to the hero's childhood, but the world and fashion change so quickly that even twenty years is a long time ago. Remember the first cell phones?

    

      Streamline and tighten your script until it "twangs" at 110 pages for a drama and 90 pages for a comedy. If you need help to accomplish that, get all the help you need.
