In my flashback scene I want the older current mc to reminisce about her past as a child. How do I create that speech without the dialogue coming from the younger version of the mc?
You could do
That’ll make a text box labeled with the MC’s name. It’s not a speech box though, just a text box.
Here is a script template I always use for my self.
(Remember, this is just an example. Fell free to change it up, I won’t be affected.)
It all happened so fast.
MC (talk _sad)
I remember that day vividly…
@transition fade out white in 4
INT. YOUR BACKGROUND
@YOUNGMC stands screen center
I was standing at the door waiting for my dad to come home…
@YOUNGMC starts think
@pause for a beat
The doorknob started to twist so I unlocked the door.
But little did I know it wasn’t my dad…
Hope my script template helps you with your writing.
Moved to Directing Help & Tips as that’s where questions about scripting live. Carry on!
