I was reading Tom Lazarus's excellent book: Secrets of Film Writing and in one of the early chapters he talks about creating a scene list which he uses as a story organiser for his screenplays. It got me thinking on methods one might use for the planning of a screenplay and I was wondering what other methods there were and what people tended to go with. I personally normally plan by writing it out as a basic short story and that works for me, but I am interested to hear of other methods.
