At a Glance
The Visual Mindscape of the Screenplay
Acknowledged that screenwriting is a Haiku form of writing in that it is concise and descriptive, it must also express the story in clear and dynamic images. Whether one considers the visual consequence of each scene or not it doesn’t change the fact that there is always an image on the screen and ergo there should always be an image on the page.
A ‘fully realized’ screenplay reveals itself primarily through images, making use of what I call the “Visual Mindscape”. This allows the reader or viewer to ‘discover’ elements of the story rather than being told. By being able to actively participate in the unfolding of the story makes the overall experience for the reader a more visceral and luminous experience.
With examples from various well known screenplays and film clips this lecture explores the various forms of the visual mindscape such as; withholding, discovery, the law of contradiction, location and Circumstance as metaphor as well as seeking visual expressions for time, tense and flow of location.
