There are screenplay formatting programming, like Final Draft, Movie Magic Screenwriter, Movie Outline and Montage that free you from learning the low down of edges and indents; it's great to have a grip of the general spacing gauges.
While there can be slight varieties for various sorts of contents, screenplays take after strict organizing rules.
Here are the fundamentals of script formatting:
- 12 point messenger text style
- 1.5 inch left edge
- 1 inch right edge (between .5 inches and 1.25 inches), worn out
- 1 inch best and base edges
- Approximately 55 lines for each page, paying little respect to paper measure (best and base edges balanced appropriately). This does exclude the page number or spaces after it.
- Dialogue speaker names (in all tops) 3.7 crawls from left half of page (2.2 from edge)
- 3.1 crawls from left half of page (1.6 from edge)
- Dialogue 2.5 crawls from left half of page (1.5 from edge)
- Pages ought to be numbered in the upper right corner, flush to the correct edge, a half-inch from the highest point of the page. Numbers ought to be trailed by a period. The principal page isn't numbered. The cover sheet is neither numbered nor does it consider page one, so the main page to have a number is the second page of the screenplay (third sheet of paper, including the cover sheet), which is numbered 2.
Have you written a screenplay, but don't quite know where to start with the script formatting?
We will provide you with a professionally formatted screenplay for your project. Each screenplay can be exported in Final Draft (.fdx), Celtx (.celtx), or .pdf formats.
Keep in mind that this is only formatting, which is making sure that each element (character names, dialogue, action, etc.) is set properly. No wording will be changed; no edits will be made.
