Write about what interests you. It will be more fun and if it interest you it will probably interest others. Keep the following in mind:
•Unusual things and surprises really get attention. We all love irony in a movie or to guess wrong what happens.
•If the outcome of the story is predictable, you lose the audience sometimes. They are either happy it was predictable they can tell their friends. Or they are not impress and feel they could have did a better story line.
•Humor can be a helpful element in any story, but too much humor spoils it.
•One page equals about one minute of screen time, so shoot for ten to thirty pages, which is typically about three to twelve scenes.
Hint: it’s easier in some ways to write thirty pages than ten because shorter stories need more intensity.
I found this information very helpful in writing our treatment. I am so excited for 2014 and http://www.mickiraproductions.com projects.
