Our Guide on How to Format a Script

Please do not think that writing a script just requires making up a dialogue. There is a process to writing a script and has to be followed. Failure to do so can result in the script being completely ignored and that means hours of work having been wasted.

Script Formatting Follow Strict Guidelines

The margins are unique for the shot headings and the dialogue. Characters have a distinct left margin and the same is true for any of the scenes transitions. Total page length should be no more than 60 lines on a paper that is 8 ½ inches wide by 11 inches long. The font to be used is Courier 12 point. There are also requirements as to where the directions on the page are to be placed. Hyphens are not accepted at the end of any dialogue line. Scene transitions will have one blank line ahead of it and followed by two blank lines afterwards. This is certainly no exercise for someone who is careless or sloppy when it comes to writing. The reason for all of this is to make the dialogue very easy to read and the directions extremely easy to follow. Time on the set is not wasted trying to figure out what needs to be done and that is critically important. Whether it is a film project, television show, or theater production time is money and neither is to be wasted.
