[Info] Posting on Scripts

This is not a forum guideline. This is something that I've found to be pretty helpful when I go through a script. Feel free to either use it or ignore it, as the case may be.

At the end of every script, I usually talk about five key elements. I've found that these are the things that every script has and needs to be talked about. This is in addition to any other comments I make on the script. Call it a summary.

1. Format: I'm not talking much about any type of "standard" format as much as I'm talking about an internal consistency.

2. Panel Descriptions: Can they be drawn? Are there moving panels? Is a camera angle given or needed? Is the writer effectively getting their message across?

3. Pacing: Is there too much going on, or not enough? Is there padding in the script? Can things be condensed and still make sense? Are things too condensed and a panel or two needs to be added in order to make it better?

4. Dialogue: Does it sound natural? Is there too much of it or too little?

5. Content: Would a reader pick this up? What do you think their reaction would be?

Hope this helps.
