I’ve been excited about looking into screen writing for some time now, as I’ve never really been taught the proper way to approach and format and screenplay. Perhaps the biggest point I took away was that the only information presented within a screenplay is the location, dialogue, and character actions. I was always if the mind that one should pack in as much information as possible, I.e. Shot type, movement, etc. this seems like a small point now, however this means that I can focus more on plot and character development without getting bogged down by technical details. I would think that if one got too focused on exactly how the screenplay will be shot, it will be easy to get distracted from the task at hand, which is to create a compelling and coherent depiction of events.
