    Can you be a little clearer? Are you asked to write a proposal for a film?

    A proposal will contain the summary of the plot and any subplots, an account of the characters involved and an indication of what you are trying to say in your film.

    Take a favourite story [and short stories are better than novels for this], and turn it into a film.

    No.

    I was asked to make a movie with a good story. (good idea)

    It's not like taking a published one and write the summary. We are supposed to make our own stories.

    So please help me.

    Seriously, if it your story, then it must come from you. You could use something from your own life as a basis, or something that is in a traditional story, or something you saw in a newspaper that struck you as odd or exciting.

    First decide what kind of film you want to make - horror, love, comedy, suspense, ghost story.

    Then work out a plot, with a start, a middle and an ending.

    Then work out what characters you want.

    Then write your proposal.

    Yes,

    And I think you need to decide on the attitudes of your characters for them not to act contrary to their principles. Make the profile of your characters first.

    Allright.

    I will make it by myself, but I think I should put the draft here. So you guys can help checking the mistakes.

    what about making a movie about telepathy,like two people who have never even met,but their deeds or words or thought effects the other one's strongly and they don't even know that.(maybe until they meet each other?)

    I like these types of movies anyway
