How To Write A Mind Blowing Story?

 Film is not something runs for 2 hours that have audio and video within, But its more than a life.

In this Topic We are going to discuss on how to write stories like Inception,Fight club,Primer.

To Think Stories Like that,

First We have to Give up all the Theories!!!
.
.
.
You mean ....Story Format?
.
.
No! 
.
.
.
We all think that all these great movies are made by the Out of the Box Thinkers.

Yes Ofcourse.

But this Films Are Created by The One who totally understand and believe the Actual Story Structures.

Actually They know too much about he Story Format and They try to alter it in its own world.

But Yes.... it's also important to think that "All these Theories and Structures are bullshit when making a new Screenplay"

But you can't go Through a Good Story, If you always try to think Out of the Box .

In that case,Take the film INCEPTION.

                                                 How it is Emerged,I mean, the Story?

All the Art Things comes from Some Inspiration.

You cant Create anything out of inspiration.Like we copied 'how to eat?' from our Parents.

So in this Topic, We will go with the film INCEPTION,We can't explain all the films.We'll discuss Other films in Other Articles.

Christopher Nolan once watched a Punjabi Indian Movie,where is a Scene about a man dreaming of Dreaming.

It's Simple,But its also an inspiration,Everything is inspiration.

And this is how the log line made.
If Cobb the Protagonist ,Aware that his world is real or dream.You Got the point!!

Then how to develop it?
.
.
You can't and shouldn't watch bunch of movies of same concept and take them into your film.
That is Crap!!! That's not Inspiration That's Plagiarism.

To develope an Inspired thing on your own,You need to know the Story Structure.Ask Questions! by structure.

*What's the Protagonist Want?

*What is he really  need?

*Who is the Antogonist?

The Structure helps to develop the Story and Screen play and also make you engaging in the One-line.

Writing the Screenplay For The Line:

*Who's the protagonist?

  He,Who have a hobby of dreaming to steal ideas and valuable information from People.

*What is his ambition?

  'Inception'- Building an idea into a human mind by means of Dream.

*What happens If he cannot achieve?

   He'll Will struck in Dream and believing that is the Real world and Get Lost.

*Why he have to Do, besides ambition?

  A Gangstar Forceses him..

Why he force him?Is Protagonist can't refuse?

The protagonist try to steal ideas from that gangster but failed,So he make him an offer.

Whose ideas the gangster wants to steal?What's struggle in it?

  He wants to steal an idea from an another big gangster.

And More Questions you Ask about your own stories ,the Story/Screenplay Will Emerge.

So the Screenplay is Ready...Although it is about new concepts like dream or something,
The Story Structure is Ordinary Right?.How to make this an mind blend?
The Devices are...

1.SETUP AND PAYOFF:

      An Abnormal or a Normal Scene/information which is not a very important scene.But which is ging to pay off in the ending/future.Giving an information to audience and pay it off in an useful/creative scene gives audience a boost up.This is called Setup and Payoff,which is almost used in every mysterious film as well as any engaging films. 

2.A PLOT TWIST :

     Finally the hero goes to Home(Family) to Live Peacefully...then what? BOOM!!! It is also a Dream.The Whole Movie Is A Dream which makes perfect sense of what the film is all about.Consider the fact that your Twist End should not fool people and be  logical follower and most importantly give a meaningful ending to the whole film.

3.NON LINEAR SCREENPLAY:

  Actually a Non Linear Screenplay pattern is not so important,but interesting.Like.. Telling a story of a protagonist murdered and the police solved the case.Nothing Interesting and Mysterious.But What about an Officer/Detective get a murder case which gives an unwanted unreliable patterns to find the Culprit.A Story of telling how the officer solves the case?,What happened to the victim? Who killed him for what?and more questions will rise in our perspective.That is an interesting Pattern than any linear screenplay.
