STEP 4 (Thursday, Week 1):

Write the treatment. No one knows how many pages a treatment should be. I have heard as short as 3-5 pages and as long as 30-50 pages. So let’s start with writing a 3-5 page treatment. Guess what, it gets easier. Treatments are typed double space so you’re really only going to write 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 pages. All movies are the same. They have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Haven’t you heard that 20 times by now? So take 3 pieces of blank paper. Call page 1 "The Beginning," page 2 "The Middle," and page 3 "The End."

Done. I feel like an impatient Ralph Macchio (or Jaden Smith) in The Karate Kid. When do I start writing lots of stuff?
