A screen play needs to be in a format everyone understands and is used by crew and actors during rehearsal and on the set. Screenplays are written in a particular format to make them easily readable.
When writing a screenplay, you need to follow some fundamental rules to ensure it’s easy to read:
- traditionally screenplays are written using the font Courier
- use at least size twelve
- begin every scene with a slugline
- write character names, important props and sound effects in capital letters.
