Writing a Screenplay? Here's a Great Source for Sample Scripts!

By March 11, 2008

If you're in the process of writing a script or planning on writing one in the near future, it's strongly recommended that you read as many scripts in your particular genre as you can. Both so you can get a feeling for the structure as well as to see how other writers turned their story ideas into a finished screenplay.

One great resource for finding sample scripts is the Internet Movie Script Database. I was literally blown away with the selection they had. These aren't reprints or transcriptions, but actual drafts of thousands of movie scripts. Be sure you add these guys to your favorites.

Hi Phil, Thanks for sharing Internet Movie Script Database. I had just seen the movie,”Curious Case of Benjamin Button”
and it kicked me into high gear to finish the rough draft of a script on the burner since the early part of this decade. Now I publicly made a commitment to my friends, clients and family to finish and give them a link to the rough draft of my working title: “5 Rites”.

When I searched for quality resources to complete my project you backed me up. Thanks.
