I've been screenwriting a few years now and read several books on formatting as well as taking classes. One thing I've noticed is that even with the ridged rules on structure and formatting, there have still been changes over the years. I thought a thread to discuss them was in order. 1. SOUND The books say that any sound should be capitalized. Such as "the gun went BANG." However, I've been told that this is no longer necessary and most readers prefer not seeing random words capitalized. 2. Camera Instructions Scripts used to have a scattering of camera instructions such as "pull back" or "zoom in". Now that is considered amateurish or old fashioned. 3. ACT Labels Each of the Acts in a story used to be labeled with a "BEGIN ACT I" followed by a "END ACT I". While this is still done, I have been told it is no longer necessary. Like I said, I've only being doing this a few years so I would like to hear from more experienced folks on whether these changes are accurate? Also, what other changes are there out there? How do you feel about them, good or bad? Feel free to mention changes you wish would happen. What formatting or structural changes would you make if you could? And why? Thanks in advance.
