Frame Up! Visual Story 101 Why You Need to Know Framing

I’ve often heard that when it comes to the differences in creative writing, that it’s all about the way conflict is handled. For example, novel’s are all about inner conflict, while theatre is deals with audible conflict, leaving film to be a visual conflict.

As writers we forget this constantly (probably because no one told most of us) but striking visuals in films don’t start in the director’s chair, or even in the camera lens, they start in the script.

FilmRiot did an awesome tutorial with director Philip Bloom who goes over a few basics of framing and visual storytelling. I can’t stress enough how important it is to know visual writing; it’s something that will take your script from zero to hero, giving your actors, crew, director and producers a clear idea of your innovative vision.
