This video, one of the first I created for my nationwide meetups for writers, actors and filmmakers ( teaches you how to write a screenplay using free state-of-the art screenwriting software available online. You learn how to format your script, why the format is important, how to collaborate with others on the script, and how to print the script to a PDF file or share a link to the current version of the script with others. You also get a solid primer on some of the most important legal aspects of writing a screenplay. You learn about copyright registration, when writing with another author can be dangerous, and things to be aware of when writing “true stories”.
