HOW TO WRITE A SCREEN PLAY

如何写电影剧本

 

If you're interested in screenwriting then the first thing you have to come terms with is that film history is littered with good manuscripts that never got made. The director fell out with the producer. The star got pneumonia. The distribution company got cold feet.

 如果你对写电影剧本感兴趣,首先你必须接受一个事实,那就是电影史上充满了好剧本最终被搁浅的例子。导演和制片人不合,明星患了肺病,发行公司临阵脱逃。


     
It's possible to make quite a tidy sum out of writing screenplays that will be never be seen by a single paying punter. Somewhat demoralising, you may think, but before you worry about all that, you have to write the manuscript in the first place. 

通过写剧本成为一个让赌马者望尘莫及的富翁,确实是有可能的。但是在那之前,也许听起来有些打击士气,你不得不靠着自己在手稿上写出你的第一场戏。

 

 

We asked two successful screenwriters, Shane Connaughton and Robert McKee, for guidance on how to write an effective screenplay.

我们询问了两位成功的电影编剧Shane ConnaughtonRobert McKee,他们的将指引我们如何写作一个成功有效的电影剧本。

 

 

 

 

Starting points - immediate advice for aspiring screenwriters

起点——给有抱负的编剧们一点直接意见

 

Remember that a good screenplay is a story and stories are critically important - they offer people equipment for living. Write about what is familiar to you and what you are passionate about.

记住一个好的电影剧本必须是一个故事,故事是至关重要的——它给人们以生活的器皿。写那些对你来说熟悉并为之充满激情的故事。

 

 

"It's the storyteller - be it for the stage, page or screen, who civilises us. The art of writing makes meaning out of life. So screenwriting is not to be taken light-heartedly. It's a serious business."
Robert McKee

“故事讲述者,通过舞台、文字或银幕等形式教化我们。书写的艺术挖掘了生活的意义。所以电影剧作不是一个戏耍的玩意,它是一项严肃的事业。”

罗伯特·麦基 

 

 

"Write about what you know and what you care about. I want to say to people who read my screenplays or see my films - this is what it was for me on the planet when I was alive."
Shane Connaughton

“写那些你知道并关心的故事。 我想告诉那些读我剧本的人们,你们所看到的故事正是我本人在这个星球上生活的写照。”

Shane Connaughton

 

 

 

The first step - writing a treatment 

第一步——写一个分析大纲

 

A treatment can mean different things - it can refer to an outline of the plot, or to a detailed plan that you use to help you write the screenplay.

分析大纲有不同的写法——它可以是情节概述,或者是一份详细的剧作写作计划。

 

 

"A true treatment is something that you would never show anyone! It's an elaborate plan which describes scene by scene what the characters say and do, and what they're thinking and feeling. It should be about 80-100 pages long. It's a tool that the writer uses to build toward the screenplay."
Robert McKee

“一个真正的分析大纲是你不会展示给任何人的东西。那是你考虑周详的精细的安排表,其中一场接一场地描述了角色们的所言所谓所思所感。它应该有80-100页左右的长度。它是帮助作者建构剧本的工具。”

罗伯特·麦基

 

 

"I've learned over the course of practice that the shorter a treatment is, the better."
Shane Connaughton  

“我在实践的过程中得出的一个经验是:分析大纲越精短越好。”

Shane Connaughton
