Locations - moving your characters around and making your plot more exciting

  Time-space rule or jump cut? CAN THE SAME CHARACTER BE IN THE FOLLOWING SCENE IN ANOTHER LOCATION - A LEAP IN TIME AND SPACE?
 
 
 
 

Where? IN THE LIFEWORLD (REALISM)

 Two sorts of locations for scenes. Private (homes) and public (inside & outside).
 PRIVATE - AT HOME: Single and shared bedroom, shared livingroom and shared kitchen, garden etc.
 PUBLIC - OUTSIDE: Street, outside supermarket, mall, outside church, mountain, seaside, car park, etc.
 PUBLIC - INSIDE: Shared spaces - bar, restaurant, classroom, factory, mall, etc.
 Shared inside and outside spaces are great - such as university or school campus.
 LIST ALL LOCATIONS YOU CAN THINK OF - FOR SCRIPT DEVELOPMENT. It's a good example of pooled knowledge.
 Often a scene problem can be solved by moving the action elsewhere. And so you stop the 'stand-and-deliver' acting.

Where? GENRES - SCI-FI, THRILLER (ACROSS WORLDS)
