OVERLAYNAME is just an example that is being used. Your overlay name can be anything.

For example, let’s say you had an overlay named CHRISTMAS TREE and you wanted it to appear in the background INT. SIMPLE LIVING ROOM - DAY

INT. BACKGROUND NAME - DAY with OVERLAYNAME

Using this code, it would be:

INT. SIMPLE LIVING ROOM - DAY with CHRISTMAS TREE

Moved to Directing Helps and Tips since this involves scripting. Make sure to check out our Forum Tutorial for more info about where to correctly create topics, and feel to PM me if there are any questions. :wink:
