I am currently in the process of writing my story and I want the narrator to be talking while a character is running back and forth in the background, How do I do this?

Also: I am trying to make the MC (ZARA) run around her room but it won’t do it?

The Script

INT.BLUE_BEDROOM_DAY_SMG
@transition fade in black in 2
readerMessage Credit to Smg.Episode for the background
@pause for a beat
@zoom on 0 271 to 421% in 2
@pause for a beat
@ZARA enters from left to spot 0.974 12 122
&ZARA is faint
@zoom on 0 0 to 100% in 3
@ZARA is standup_neutral
@ZARA spot 0.974 400 131 in 0.7 AND ZARA is run_super_speed_loop
@ZARA spot 0.974 14 125 in 0.6 AND ZARA is run_super_speed_loop
&ZARA is tinker_stand_neutral_loop_rear
@ZARA spot 0.974 371 127 in 0.7 AND ZARA is run_super_speed_loop

 NARRATOR (ZARA)
I'M LATE FOR SCHOOL!!

&ZARA spot 0.974 400 131 in 0.7 AND ZARA is run_super_speed_loop
@ZARA spot 0.974 14 125 in 0.6 AND ZARA is run_super_speed_loop

    NARRATOR (ZARA)
I CAN'T BE LATE FOR SCHOOL AGAIN!!!

&ZARA spot 0.974 400 131 in 0.7 AND ZARA is run_super_speed_loop
@ZARA spot 0.974 171 108 in 0.4 AND ZARA is run_super_speed_loop
&ZARA is idle_exhausted_cramp_loop
@pause for a beat

    ZARA
(Finally got everything)

&ZARA spot 0.974 400 131 in 0.7 AND ZARA is run_super_speed_loop

Thank you!

Hello!

For a character to go to a position you must write :

@ZARA walks to spot 0.974 400 131 in 0.5 and ZARA does it while run_super_speed_loop

If you want her to go there while the NARRATOR speaks you shall change the @ into &, also 0**.7 is way too fast, try to use like 1 or 2 ** instead of 0.7 otherwise people may not have time to read and see her run try something like this :

&ZARA walks to spot 0.974 371 127 in 2 and ZARA does it while run_super_speed_loop
NARRATOR (ZARA)
I CAN’T BE LATE FOR SCHOOL AGAIN!!

I hope it helps :sparkling_heart:
