How To Tell a Story in the Most Compelling Way

Learning how to make movies is an exciting journey and seeing the final result is incredibly rewarding – but it all starts with a good screenplay.

This video by Lessons from the Screenplay explores the genius of screenwriter Gillian Flynn who wrote Gone Girl. Flynn is able to write the story in an incredibly compelling way, making the groundwork, which sets the tone for all other departments to make the film remarkable and entertaining.

By using classic storytelling techniques, Flynn is able to communicate the context and intention of every line and scene, giving actors and directors even more room to play around with.

Aspiring writers and filmmakers, pay close attention to the way in which Flynn uses action lines, subplot character and the last lines of the scene to tell the story compellingly.
