Most Important Elements of a Good ScriptMoldySock
The Top Ten
Good characters should have an interesting backstory/origin story with a realistic personality.
None of the blinding, disgusting, or horrible scenery. It takes the audience’s attention away from the story.
Wouldn’t it be boring to have a story without some conflict? If everything was normal and was all good every time, you’d get bored of it
This is a good one, always need a good plot which requires being able to be put in a plot chart
Dialogue that is funny, reasonable, clever, and understandable would make the story better.
Use appropriate imagery, no desktop backgrounds or lazy animation. There is one show I know that has used a desktop background (I’m looking at you Powerpuff Girls Reboot).
Like not the same manufactured superhero genre or similaristic violent animal movies like anaconda or Jurassic Park. Something really original. - Kiteretsunu
Don’t re-use stories from other shows, movies, even video games! It gets annoying, repetitive, and boring. You’ll basically know what’s going to happen, so why bother copying another story?
Something that really drives me crazy in a book or a movie is when the plot is stretched over thirty-six chapters or two hours, where it could have been done in half that. A pet peeve of mine is pointless interludes. - PositronWildhawk
Don’t over-extend moments/scenes and keep it at a small time. Your audience will be uninterested if it goes on for too long and if you make a moment longer than it needs to be.
Don’t make everyone look the same or have the same movements/expressions. It’s lazy, confusing, and uninteresting
The climax is one of the most important things in a story. No climax, no surprise. That’s all there is to it.
