How to act in a play or be your own playwright
Self Improvement 7/9/06
To be a playwright, you need to know what they are, they write scripts for movies and plays, which define a scene to act out. A script is the idea of peoples action in words, for written in staged dialogue, on what to do, and where, with lines to say, these scenes follow two different styles, action and sleeper. Action has start, conflict, climax, resolution and end. Sleeper is start, resolution, anticlimax, conflict and end. To begin this, you need a plot and storyline, plot is a idea to which, allows viewers interested. Storyline, is the story you want to portray, for each scene.
For plays, there are one act plays, two act plays... etc. For movies, there are four or more scenes to portray the action. Each scene pushes the plot along to the end, the more scenes, the longer it is, two scenes take an hour, four scenes take hours. Start is the action beginning, conflict, is the many scenes mixed in of interaction, thats calm or violent. Climax, is the end of the conflict or resolution, anticlimax, is the reverse of climax and begins conflict. Resolution, is to build up nonviolent events or resolve conflicts. End, is the final moments of the action or sleeper.
Starting with the action model, of the starting activity, like a beginning of seeing a movie on tv, then the conflict of little, things that provide interest with buildup activity, like the movie ends and, you see the activity shift, to dinner with another, a fight ensues in the midst of it, with arguements. A climax, of the event, where the event is at its full, like the fight ends, with threats and empty promises. Resolution, to resolve the event, where the fight ended, the action goes on to, a road trip for supplies, and something to sooth the other person, stopping for gas and traffic lights, getting there to buy supplies and one extra object. End point, to finish the action, they meet the other person there, as they walk, out the other person gets the item, and forgivance happens.
Now for the sleeper, which can put a person to sleep, with a beginning of a single person, doing a self project, and chatting with AOL. Resolution, with another he meets online, to form a relationship, and then going out with each other. Anticlimax of getting into fight, breaking up relationship, only to meet later. Conflict of meeting later to fight, yet at the end of the arguement, the man gets to his knees, and begs forgivance, getting the forgivance after asking for marriage. Ending, getting yes as an answer to forgivance, and marriage with a scene of the marriage and kiss. This was in "When harry met sally", a AOL paid for sleeper film, to promote love.
To promote your script, get it published, by looking for a publisher, on net or phone book, to see the publisher gets the script, and only if they agree to look at it. Publishers require different things, so try to find a way to make a sell, following thier requirements. There are many publishers, thus if you find disagreement or declined offers, go to another, till they accept. Tips to success, understand that people will need full dialogue, good plot, good storyline and good sentences, or no acceptance. However, any script needs actors as in doing a screenplay, or acting the script out.
