The movie is first made in the head.
- The story that is inside the brain, in the beginning, serves as a foundation to the project, which will eventually see lots of changes, twists and turns.
- Important story elements like plot, characters, narrative, conflict etc. are decided at this stage.
- It is good to carry a notepad or install a note-taking app to jot down fresh ideas that come up in this initial stage.
- Keep a note of newspaper articles, real-life observations and even dreams!
