Off screen speech

How do you make it so that a character isn’t standing on screen but talks?
I need Athena to speak but I need her off screen

I think you can place the character in another zone, and then make them talk.
For example if you are in zone 1:
@ ATHENA stands screen center in zone 2
ATHENA (animation)
Blah blah blah.

I’m not sure if this will work for you but I can recommend a few things

1.
INT. HOUSE - (Place)
CHARACTERS (animation)
Speech

Don’t add the character to screen just do this, this worked for me so try it out

2. Try this second
Character enters from left to screen right
@pan to zone 2
CHARACTER (animation)
Speech

3. Do what you did in two but you can edit the speech bubble in the direction help

4. You can use this to
NARRATOR (CHARACTER)
Speech


Hoped this helped :wink:
