Before you send your screenplay out into the world, check it against this list of what a well-constructed script should have. Of course, this is no substitute for an in-depth analysis by a professional. You may still need a script doctor, but first try this home remedy.
Screenwriting has been described as a craft, not an art. It has a strict form. Many talented writers stumble when it comes to structure, which is arguably the most important factor in a script’s success.
Fortunately, dramatic structure is something you can learn. Use this list as a guide. Check your screenplay against it. If you answer “no” to any of these questions, that’s where your script may need work.
Michael Ray Brown, the founder of Story Sense, developed this list for his popular class A Structure Checklist: How to Plug the Holes in Your Script. This class is now available on DVD. A comprehensive examination of what makes a script work, it combines a multitude of dramatic theories into one practical guide.
