There are several types of writers and one among that vast variety is writers who write script for short films. Writing scripts for short films would be one of the most interesting things to do, if we have the right passion towards it. Though it is sure to be an interesting task, it isnt an easy talk, for in involves a number of complicatedness.
There are a few rules to be followed when we are doing the scripts for short films.
Initially, a short film is expected to be short, and thats why we call it a short film. Some people tend to get deeply immersed within the subject which makes them elongate their script, but in the cases of short films, it wouldnt work. The shorter the script it, the likely it is for the short film to become a success.
Secondly, when a person scripts a short film, he/she gets deeply involved with the incidents of the story that they sort of forget to think about the practicalities of the script. To write don, saying that a car fell down from the highest mountain is going to be very easy, but its not going to be that easy, when it comes to bringing the shot to action.
The script writers, should make sure that they make the scripts which are easy to visualize, rather than making it a read aloud text. When the script sounds like a read aloud text, it is much likely to be boring for the audience, and therefore, a script is expected to be lively.
The script writers should be focussing on the key incident, which acts as a turning factor in the story, for without that key point moment in the story, the short film wouldnt be complete, and therefore, it is highly expected of the writer to focus on the single moment of the story that lends much to the plot.
