Since we are discussing about Film here, if you happen to find powerful moments in a screenplay revolve around it. AGU V. God, there is nothing to be keeping you from watching what we are doing.
They flip open an armoire. A quiet settles over the room as Hope and Griot take a moment to look at what they have found. Agu looks at them, his eyes, so high, seem to float on his shoulders. AGU Mother? Hope looks at Agu, amused. Agu moves to hug her. The women turn in fear just as Agu reaches to hug her.
It is not Mother. The girl is also emaciated, her knees like jutting knobs. Agu hugs the women anyway. They scream, shrinking away from Agu. I am not He realizes they are not his Mother and Sister, their fear angers him.
He grabs them, pulling at their clothes. And you, you are not my sister! They continue screaming. The woman clasps her hands together, tears all over her face. Please Lord I am begging to You. Devil born you! Griot holds her down. Strika holds her down, and so does Agu as Hope unzips his pants. AGU Devil is not blessing me. Shut up! Agu falls back with the girl, then drags her light body away from her mother. Griot gets his soldier ready to rape the mother. Agu walks to her, and at point blank, raises his rifle and dispatches the Mother with a bullet to her head.
In any case each film has its own powerful moment, look for them. But the point being is that, once you find a perfect story it will stick with you and automatically it will lead you to day dream; keep up with it, mark them down if possible and work around it.

Check out this Example Article from DigitalSpy 11 major movies still stuck in development hell When a film is in development but never receives the necessary production funds, another studio may execute a turnaround deal and produce the film to make it successful.
An example of this is when Columbia Pictures developed, but then stopped production of E. Universal Pictures then picked up the film and made it a success.
If a studio completely abandons a film project, the costs are written off as part of the studio's overhead. Sometimes studios or producers will deliberately halt production in order to stop competition on a different project, or to ensure that people invested will be available for other projects that the studio prefers. Location will influence the look and feel of the story. Mostly the fu ds ill e go e if the p oje t i ol es uildi g sets.

These exposures are created sequentially and preserved for later processing and viewing as a motion picture. Capturing images with an electronic image sensor produces an electrical charge for each pixel in the image, which is electronically processed and stored in a video file for subsequent processing or display. Images captured with photographic emulsion result in a series of invisible latent images on the film stock, which are chemically " developed " into a visible image. The images on the film stock are projected for viewing the motion picture. Cinematography finds uses in many fields of science and business as well as for entertainment purposes and mass communication. In the s, three different solutions for moving images were invented on the concept of revolving drums and disks, the stroboscope by Simon von Stampfer in Austria, the phenakistoscope by Joseph Plateau in Belgium, and the zoetrope by William Horner in Britain.
There are many aspects involved in creating a visually aesthetic and effective video or film. Cinematography, in particular, is a fundamental element to the process, and if given the appropriate planning, time, and thought, can ensure the finished product has a lasting impact. Lighting is one of the key factors involved in effective cinematography, and understanding the principles behind it can assist in ensuring high-quality results from whatever content is being created. Lighting is important in video and film production because cameras do not respond to lights in the same way that the human eye does. The finite detail and lighting contrasts a human eye can see are incredibly developed, and cameras cannot process or pick up on this as well. The correct lighting can determine the mood of the scene and can evoke a more dramatic or subtle palette for the film.

Filmmaking or, in any context, film production is the process by which a film is made. Filmmaking involves a number of complex and discrete stages including an initial story, idea, or commission, through screenwriting , casting , shooting, sound recording and pre-production , editing , and screening the finished product before an audience that may result in a film release and an exhibition. Filmmaking takes place in many places around the world in a range of economic, social, and political contexts, and using a variety of technologies and cinematic techniques.
