I’m getting ready to do my first short movie. I’m in the very beginning of the process: Writing the script. Anybody have any tips to make the writing process easier?

What are you finding difficult about getting started? Ideas? How to give your characters a distinct voice? Formatting?

If you tell me exactly what you’re trying to do, I can definitely help you get started, bud.

The dialogue is causing me trouble. Character creation. This is my first attempt at making a short movie.
