Cellphone overlay help

community

#1

okay so i’m new here and learning some things about writing on episode. I’m having some kind of trouble when it comes to overlay phone. I would have the text and have someone choose. BUT after they choose and stuff. How do i end it to the next scene? It just stays there and doesn’t leave the the text msg.? I’ll show you an example of mine.

like lets say I said yes to the text and than leave but say no and leave? IF this makes any sense can someone please take the time and help me out? THANK YOU !

“NO!”{
NARRATOR

You don’t have to label anything…
Just add the phone animations like texting


#3

“YES”{
@NARRATOR is (your animation)
NARRATOR
I’ll text him…
}
“No”{
NARRATOR
I won’t
}
