How do I show urgency in my film script?

#screenwriting #filmmaking #writing #screenplay

Usually some form of Time Pressure is indicated. Usually some form of armageddon will result.

Armageddon really means that what once was will shortly come to an end. The world which previously existed, will shortly come to an end. Unless the hero's journey can save the day or somehow allow entry into a new world or dawn.

In Armageddon (1998), the end of the world is literal.

In The Ugly Truth (2009), the end of the world is the end of Abby's show.

In The Heat of the Night (1967), Sparta will die if Mrs Colbert moves the factory, which means solving the crime.

This is answered in more detail within the 2000+ stage Hero's Journey/Transformation/New World, which you can purchase from
