I would suggest you teach yourself all there is to learn about screenwriting using Google. Start off by familiarizing yourself with how a feature film screenplay is formatted properly and then learn different standards of writing different things in a feature film screenplay like how to write scene headings or sluglines, how to introduce a character properly (Capitalize their name when they first appear in your film), how to write action (what happens on screen), where the dialogue appear on the page (center) and if the character speaks the dialogue Off Screen or the dialogue is his/her Voice Over.

Feel free to send an email if you find any concept of screenwriting difficult to understand and I’d be happy to explain it to you free of charge.

Google is full of details about screenwriting in English which I already know, but I am unaware of the format of urdu scripts. There are no guidelines to follow up for urdu screenplays. Kindly help me in this matter.

Hi Ahmed,

Thank you for your comment. The Pakistani producer for whom I wrote a feature film asked me to write everything i.e. sluglines, action, character names, dialogue instructions (V.O., O.C.) in English, but dialogue in Roman Urdu. I had developed a way to write properly formatted screenplays in InPage with sluglines containing both English characters and Urdu words - which I was going to teach in my courses, but since modern-day Pakistani producers seem to want "everything in English, dialogue in roman Urdu," (it's also how screenplays are written in Bollywood - only dialogue in Roman Hindi - by the way), we can safely write screenplays for the Pakistani film and TV industry this way.

I hope that this helps.
