Characters and Conflict

When people submit a script to an agent, movie company or network, it must be written in script format. The script format is a blueprint developed by people that demonstrates to other people what's being seen and heard. People should never submit any script unless people know the rules for script format. Make it flow and involve the reader, so he or she won't want to put it down. Here are the correct script format specifications: At the opening of the script put the words FADE IN and an end of the script type the words FADE OUT. One way to ensure the smooth flow of work is not to include camera angles and directions. There are terrific computer programs such as Final Draft or Movie Magic Screenwriter that will format the screenplay in a professional manner. These programs make it easy for people to correctly format the script without being bogged down in worrying about margins and style.
