What A Short Needs

Just critiqued a short film script for a gentleman in England. After sending him the notes, found this in a pile of pages as I was cleaning off my desk. Thought I’d share.

What good shorts need

what you care about + emotion + primal

active, well defined hero, solve own problem, simple desire

opposite desire

what does hero want!?

helps tell story


Nothing is wasted. Nothing repeats.

Beginning. Middle. End.
