Script error (need help a.s.a.p!)


#1

Hi! I’m gonna paste the script and the problem below :

INT. SCHOOL OFFICE OL - DAY

&MR MYERS sits screen left
&MR MYERS faces right

@cut to zone 3

@pause for a beat

sound door_knock

@pause for a beat

@pan to zone 1 in 1

    MR MYERS (talk_call_out)
Come in!

@cut to zone 2

@NAME enters from right to screen right in zone 2

&follow NAME to upscreen right in zone 1

    NAME (talk_awkward)
Is this the principal's office?

So my problem is that I want the principal (MR MYERS) to sit on the desk thingy in zone 1 without the reader seeing him first. then I want it to look like the MC (NAME) enters from the door which is in zone 2 and then they both have a conversation. But when I save it, it says : Use @CHARACTER enters from X to screen Y please help me asap!

Try taking out ‘in zone 2’ in this line:

Let me know if this doesn’t work.

here you need to use @ sign not & sign


#4

Thanks, but that is irrelevant to the issue.


#5

It is now error free, but now it looks like the MC is standing with him? I don’t know…take a look.


#6

It’s because you have:

&follow NAME to upscreen right in zone 1


#7

Try using zooms? As for the desk, try using layers @NAME moves to later 10


#8

Is it wrong? If so, is there any way I could fix it?


#9

Thanks :slight_smile:


#10

You tell her to walk to screen right in zone 1, that’s why she’s in that position. PM if you need more help. :slight_smile:

Okay, I will change the position then. And sure, I would love to PM you if I needed any help, thank you!
