Episode 15 - The Language of Page Writing & Formatting

Felicity Wren & Max Timm • January 18, 2018

Most of the writing we do as screenwriters takes place well before we even start using a screenwriting software program. All that program does for you, really, is properly formats the script. Sadly, it doesn't write the script for you! Still, and even though the outlining process is essential to developing a great script, the page writing is essential too. In this live Facebook broadcast, the ISA's development executives, Felicity Wren and Max Timm, discuss what makes for an entertaining page of a screenplay and we go beyond just the basic formatting education. Learn how to engage your reader! Don't just assume you know how to format a script because certain spacing issues are taken care of. It's so much more than that.

Remember, Felicity and Max always have open Q&A during every Facebook Live broadcast, so you should tune in when they broadcast their next live chat. Even though most broadcasts focus on a particular subject, every writer is welcome to ask anything they like at any time. Felicity and Max will do their best to give you a straight and honest answer.
