It says: expected character or scene change and I can’t seem to find the problem in my script…

EXT. HOLLYWOOD BACKLOT - DAY

@transition fade in black 5

@pause for a beat

NARRATOR (DAVE)

Hi.
I’m Felicity. I honestly don’t know what’s wrong help please!

You need a space between FELICITY AUTHOR and (talk_greet):

Or the problem might be with how you named your character (her script name), try something like this:

FELICITY_AUTHOR
