I am currently writing a story about high school and I wanted to make a scene in a hall, where some students are standing and doing some stuff while the main character walks by.
The script for that scene looks like this:
INT. BLUE SCHOOL HALLWAY - DAY
transition iris in
STUDENT3 spot 1.012 118 66 and STUDENT3 is listen_phone_sigh
STUDENT2 spot 0.778 288 217 and STUDENT2 is eyeroll_sarcastic
NARRATOR I used to have everything I needed. NARRATOR It wasn't perfect life but.. NARRATOR I wanted to enjoy every moment of it.
But the problem is that I do not want the characters to be “poppin out” after the transition one by one, I want them all to be there.
Any tips how to do that? It looks horrible like this haha.
