Screenplay format is a deceptively difficult thing to master. It looks so easy, even perhaps intuitive, as you read a script, doesn't it? Sure, the guy talking is in the middle, and then the other stuff is over at the left side… piece o' cake.
But as you sit down to write one, that's when the headache begins. Where exactly does the dialogue go? Am I supposed to tell the camera what to do? What words get CAPITALIZED? How do I tell the audience that this line is supposed to be sarcastic and said with a wink? And on and on.
Well, fear not! Coverage, Ink’s newly revised and expanded SPEC FORMAT GUIDE will help you master screenplay format. Geared for everyone from beginners to professionals, our format and style guide will get you rocking.
The 80-page-long, easy-breezy guide takes you through the ins and outs of screenplay format in a jiffy -- from taking those first baby steps (What paper should I use? How do I bind this thing? etc.) through advanced techniques. The Guide also includes sections on common mistakes, writing exercises, grammar, terminology, and much, much more! Best of all: it's $3.95.
