As film is first and foremost a visual medium, does it not make sense that the screenplay, which is the spine, heart and soul of the film, also be a visual experience? If in Citizen Kane you were ‘told’ the meaning of ‘Rosebud’, would it have the same impact as it did when you saw the sleigh being tossed into the furnace? Of course not! Bill Boyle believes that a fully realized screenplay reveals itself primarily through images, which he refers to as the Visual Mindscape. This allows the reader or viewer to ‘discover’ elements of the story rather than being told. It is a far more intimate and visceral experience. Bill feels this is the true magic of the screenplay and is the basis behind his book The Visual Mindscape of the Screenplay.
For a more in-depth exploration of the Visual Mindscape method of screenwriting, Bill will be leading the Visual Mindscape Screenwriting Retreat February 5-7, 2016 in Malibu, California. Check ISA Classes for information and registration.
