Screenplay

I just completed my first screenplay. It's Neon Chopstix episode three, "Confidential."

I definitely have a lot to learn about where to put in scene and shot notations and how to differentiate action from general comments and scene settings. But it's roughed in and now John, Kimura and I can polish it. I'm looking forward to learning more about the process from them.

Neato! I have software that formats screenplays. I'm still learning how to properly notate the plays that I write. I think they key to most notation is continuity.

Bullet should be TOMOKO'S LIVING ROOM. Description should be "they sit on the floor." (Sit, not sitting. Fidgets, not fidgeting.) Generally, actor directions like fidgeting are unnecessary -- they can annoy actors/directors who want to make their own choices and result in a lost sale. The last sentence describing what we're about to read is also redundant.

Get a good book on screenwriting and follow the rules explicitly.
