A script is a written work for a film, television show, or other moving media, that expresses the movement, actions, and dialogue of characters. Scripts, or screenplays, are the blueprint for the movie. A screenplay is written in a specific format to distinguish between characters, action lines, and dialogue.
How do you write a Script?
Script format is relatively simple as you will see in our Script example, but it’s one of those things that can seem a bit daunting until you’ve actually learned how to do it.
The basics of script formatting are as follows:
- 12-point Courier font size;
- The 1.5-inch margin on the left of the page;
- The 1-inch margin on the right of the page;
- 1 inch on of the top and bottom of the page;
- Each page should have approximately 55 lines;
- The dialogue block starts 2.5 inches from the left side of the page;
- Character names must have uppercase letters and be positioned starting 3.7 inches from the left side of the page;
- Page numbers are positioned in the top right corner with a 0.5-inch margin from the top of the page. The first page shall not be numbered, and each number is followed by a period.
