Write a Script – Movie or Miniseries?

First and foremost as a writer, #1 follow your passion. If you feel your idea/concept will be better served by writing a miniseries than writing a 90 minute movie, I say “do it now” and give it all you’ve got.

Many writers just have too, a lot of content to narrow done, right? Way too many ideas, way too many thoughts, way too many words, way too many possibilities – welcome to the entire world of being a writer. No real matter what nonton movie 21 online, its about focusing and picking an underlying theme so your primary character can exist in a global where you get to tell an account, a compelling story others will want to know and take part in by watching the story play on a screen – big or small.

If your calling in life being an aspiring writer leads you to believe you’ve got a significant amount of data in a specific concept to condense on to a 90 minute movie and a miniseries could be the direction you decide to go, bear in mind that miniseries aren’t produced in enough quantity that writers “who is able to do that” are increasingly being sought after.

Remember, being an aspiring writer, you write a spec script as an example of work, not so much to get’that’particular script produced. Writers have to publish and write they do, many, many scripts, all of which shows their power to write. It’s not all about the theory you’ve got as a possible movie – a lot of great ideas don’t translate to the page – to the screen. Pick your ideas carefully, develop them well, know the craft of scriptwriting and write with the intent to sell (not for validation and praise).

As a writer, and all writers face this, your works-in-progress gets tweaked and tweaked until it becomes a good script. Focusing and finding that certain element that could drive your primary character through the movie or show is paramount in every writing. Since you’re new at writing I indicate staying on the highway to really hammering out the script you’ve started as a characteristic – all writing done properly makes you a better writer. If you complete one well crafted script you’re in a better place to publish the 4+ scripts a miniseries would demand. If you’re an incredible writer with many, many well crafted (professionally evaluated for feedback) scripts under your belt then you may pretty much bang out the countless scripts necessary for a miniseries. But, if you’ve not even completed one well crafted script, be sure you learn the craft of good writing (that’s not just idea-wise its formatting as well) before you commit yourself to the all consuming arduous task of the demands of multiple scripts.

If your end result is to be recognized as a specialist writer then really learning the craft is essential before hanging out, effort, blood, sweat and tears on this type of big undertaking as a miniseries. It’s your option though, so follow your inner guidance. Make your thoughts and ideas serve you. Don’t let those thoughts and ideas run the show, dictate – you’re the god for the project and you need to make your thoughts last NOT be a slave for them or they’ll make folly with you and run you ragged and waste your time.

See yourself in the future as one of those exceptional individuals hiding explosive potential. Utilize that writing talent you’re blessed with. You’re walking into that world where creative sparks can set off an explosion of prosperity. Have a specialist guide or mentor in order to capitalize in your genius within and identify it. I rely on your hidden talents and by now next season you might be a valuable asset in the entertainment industry, a different person reaching out and touching the success, wealth, and happiness you deserve.

If you intend to write a miniseries – go for it.
