    What if the scene is going from two different shots? Like on a phone call?

    I have a question concerning dialog. How much space should be between the
    characters name, and his/her dialog? And how “wide” should I formay it?

    I guess its down to if the reader can understand it. For example, if a
    following scene takes place with the character leaning on the car, then
    saying INT. car for the scene inside the car would allow for a better
    understanding. However, if the car itself moves location (parked in a
    garage or whatnot), then saying EXT. would make it clearer. It’s really
    personal preference.

    Trelby is fantastic. Also, a quick note for everyone: try to keep the
    action direction down to a minimum. Four lines should be the absolute

    How would you do an O.S. (off stage) dialogue when there is something else
    appearing on screen, as seen on The Office?

    Screenplay Formatting Step One: Buy Final Draft.

  18. Archway Cinema on January 27th, 2014

    What if you have 3 characters all saying the same line at the same time?

    INT. COMMENTING ON A YOU TUBE VIDEO KinghtsofEmerald sits at her
    heated-floor table and reads Youtube comments while putting on makeup. She
    laughs softly and TYPES ” I’m already in the future. I Live in Japan ;)
    ”. She leans back an contemplates her written work.

    The character names that indicate who’s speaking each section of dialogue,
    those are capitalized every time. The “you only fully capitalize their name
    the first time” applies to the action description sections. It’s a way of
    introducing the character to the reader as someone important. If you’ll
    notice in his script, WILLIAM and CABBIE are fully capitalized in the first
    action description, but not in any of the ones after that. (1:16)

    This is from a post at the celtx forum about the pronunciation of the name.
    ” ‘Kel-tix’…. that’s how we pronounce it. It’s actually an acronym for
    Cast, Equipment, Location, Talent, XML (extensible markup language)… all
    part of the original concept which has since morphed to include
    scriptwriting, etc. ” Sheila Crosbie
